about

The wonder of reproduction, given an appropriate cosmic setting

lyrics

Reproduction is our means of creation
Never ceasing to amaze and delight
Are you contemplating fertilisation
Or some other way of spending the night?

The unknown is all-knowing
Of the known it may know is unknown to us now

So gestation is correctly proceeding
Mama’s vital signs have got to be fine
Daddy has to be around if she’s needing
Folic acid or a wash on the line

Chorus

Square prong
In a black, untarnished hole somewhere in time
Might save the world

Lead

Chorus

Repeat middle

At the moment of umbilical severance
Will the separation prove to be grave?
Or the makings of a wonderful person
Kind-hearted, confident, intelligent, brave

The unknown is all-knowing
Of the known it may know is unknown
The unknown is all-knowing
Of the known it may know is unknown
The unknown is all-knowing
Of the known it may know is unknown to us now
