Lyrics

Random blobs of power expressed as that which we all disregard,
Ordered states of nature on a scale that no one thinks about.
Don't speak to me of anarchy of peace or calm revolt,
Man, we're in a play of slow decay orchestrated by Boltzmann.

It's entropy, it's not a human issue,
Entropy, it's a matter of course.
Entropy, energy at all levels,
Entropy, from it you can not divorce.
And your pathetic moans of suffrage tend to lose all significance.

Extinction, degradation: The natural outcomes of our ordered lives.
Power, motivation: Temporary fixtures for which we strive.
Something in our synapses assures us we're ok,
But in our disequilibrium we simply can not stay.

It's entropy, it's not a human issue,
Entropy, it's a matter of course.
Entropy, energy at all levels,
Entropy, from it you can not divorce.

A stolid proposition from a man unkempt as I,
My affectatious nature I can not rectify,
But we are out of equilibrium unnaturally,
A pang of consciousness of death
And then you will agree.

It's entropy.
Entropy, it's a matter of course.
Entropy, energy at all levels,
Entropy, from it you can not divorce.
Entropy,
Entropy,
Entropy,
Entropy!
