This song is about the gene editing technology known as CRISPR CAS-9.
I am the one who cuts the genes.
I am the one behind the screen.
I am the master of the protein.
I have the power over guanine.
We ride the wind upon the 9.
(Stay, feel, real deal.)
We tie it in upon a lie.
(Stay, See, Be free.)
We do remove, improve the new and replace it.
We use our tools and do our best to escape it.
Cut it right out.
Fooling the cell, target the zone.
Fooling the cell, of blood or bone.
But did he want it in his pocket when he fought a patent war?
And did she win it in a minute from the liars in the court?
Shepherds we are, Shepherds we are.
Target the zone, Cut and repair.
So cut your jeans and learn to fight.
Don't cut your hair, disarm a man.
Remove the eyes and take a stab.
The time is right, don’t say a thing until we pronounce the CRISPR King!

Certainly a controversial direction for the band, but this album ultimately rests as my favorite from TTNG. The technical mastery of their previous albums is still present here along with some very thought provoking and philosophical lyrics. I may not always agree with the lyrical messaging, but this is an album which rewards careful listening. Syobnaf
