lyrics

Someone tried to reinvent the lecture theatre here
A vision of the future without plug sockets
Cold War throwback, modernist blocks
Impersonal warmth of building visible

Inside the human warren
Concrete labyrinth like stone
I see passageways and levels open closed
Inside the human warren
Captured memories of stone
Imagined history of caves, imagined future

To me this place holds a promise from the past
Utopian vision of the techno-primitive
Natural light filtered from huge glass windows
Ugly architecture made friendly and gentle

Inside the human warren
Concrete labyrinth like stone
I see passageways and levels open closed
Inside the human warren
Captured memories of stone
Imagined history of caves, imagined future

To my friend from Bulgaria the visage differs
A socialist building of practical function
As histories divide our view is riven
She sees the ghost of oppressive memory

Inside the human warren
Concrete labyrinth of stone
I see passageways and levels open closed

Inside the human warren
Concrete labyrinth like stone
I see passageways and levels open closed
Inside the human warren
Captured memories of stone
Imagined history of caves, imagined future

Inside the human warren
Captured memories of stone
I see passageways and levels open closed open closed
Inside the human warren
Concrete labyrinth like stone
Imagined history of caves, imagined future
