Lyrics
Bits of spirits were set on a carpet of carbon
Pieces of apes were placed in a time of ice and iron

Keep fit, Survive
Primitive Jeeps crushed fossils and ancient bone
Chandelier-sized flowers aromatized pollen and chromosome
Puzzles grew on trees where mutilated fruit hung
Like the hats of inscrutable guests
Who`d sipped their soft drinks and sung

Keep fit, Survive
You won't recognize yourself till you come alive

Pepsi-Cola, Pepsi-Cola brings your ancestors back from the grave
At Leonardo da Vinci Intercontinental Airport
A Swiss pathologist missed his connecting flight

An asteroid kicked up the dust the dinosaur stubbornly bit
Man`s brain was taken
The cortex stuck at an awkward angle on it
His first words were

What have I done to deserve the sun!
What have I done to deserve the rain!
