Nature's Brain

This is exactly what I was thinking of doing for the concept album.

The subject matter comes from a lesser known Frank Herbert novel, except with the titular brain transported to an alien planet. Exact names have been gently scrubbed for copyright reasons.

This song's music is composed of the music from three different (public domain) hymns arranged in a manner to loosely simulate modern music.

The album concept (repeated from my bio): This FAWM, I want to write songs for an art album I'm working on. Abstractly, it's an art album about copyright... in the guise of hymn filk. The premise is a lonely space traveler thinks about what might be in store for the colony ship when they get there, but due to copyright restrictions only music made before 1926 is available on-board. So, he combines the two.

Lyrics

A verdant world ruled by green
Nature's brain
Harmony and peace achieved
Nature's brain
To each a role, each a part
Nature's brain
What science lacks, here perceived
Nature's brain

We come to bring humanity,
but we bring more it seems.
Regardless of the need or cost
we bring towns, roads and things.

The verdant world ruled by green
Nature's brain
Sensing the danger man brings
Nature's brain
Man unbound, his place unwound
Nature's brain
Will we listen as she sings?
Nature's brain

Our old world now boxed and boarded,
ordered ecologies.
We abandoned the untidy.
Never knowing what lost.

How long until the green ends?
Or can we live in peace?
Can we take our place
Guided by the kind verdant
green brain of nature.

A verdant world ruled by green
Nature's brain
Harmony and peace achieved
Nature's brain
To each a role, each a part
Nature's brain
What science lacks, here perceived
Nature's brain
