# liberated lyrics – borknagar

from every human complexity

and nature’s twisted *n*logy

an urge to explain – to understand

springs out with the nation to expand

keep up our vital vivacity

or would it onshroud us in disillusion

the notion of our emanc*p*tion

lies far from any genuine liberation

seeking a detailed explanation

we think therefore we’re cursed

as questions multiply with every solution

the “why” stands untouchable – no intrusion

a constant flow of total inconstancy

a natural starfelt divinity

could a mathematical formula

improve our existential stamina

would explaining our kin universally

keep up our vital vivacity

or would it onshroud us in disillusion

the notion of our emanc*p*tion

lies far from any genuine liberation

seeking a detailed explanation

we think therefore we’re blessed

a machiavellian way of thought

in struggle with all that society sought

a full explanation’s the king of our dreams

to know: what’s our role in the scheme of schemes

where is our place in this order of chaos?

the notion of our emanc*p*tion

lies far from any genuine liberation

seeking a detailed explanation

we think therefore we are
