The Lyrics

My dedication to DC's Swamp Thing who was once biochemist Alec Holland, a brilliant man with a formula to bring life to barren landscapes. Except that the mysterious Mr.E wants it for his own purposes and tries to kill Holland with a bomb in his lab. Holland catches fire and splashed with biochemicals dives into the Louisiana swamp muck to later emerge as a hideous creature that _thinks_ it is Alec Holland but really is a new plant entity with the faint memories of Holland. The creature struggles to determine its humanity but does not possess it anymore. In rage, it strikes out against Mr.E and his goons. Holland's former lover does not recognize anything of him in the creature so it returns to the swamp to live out its lonely existence...
Is it living plant life, who once was a man
Reaction unstable, result was not planned
Biochemical entity
Back from the dead- that was once a real human being

[Chorus]
That was once a real human being
That was once a real human being
Holland worked in a laboratory
Working in biochemistry
A formula for restoring things
To force deserts into blossoming
Lab was torn apart, Holland burning
Altered physiology
Swamp dive turned him into a monstrosity

Internal spirit, external plant
Alec Holland is dead, intellect absent
Unrecognizable as a man
That was once a real human being

That was once a real human being
That was once a real human being
Holland worked in a laboratory
Working in biochemistry
A formula for restoring things
To force deserts into blossoming
Lab was torn apart, Holland burning
Altered physiology
Swamp dive turned him into a monstrosity

Creature lives as a humanoid thing
Without humanity it can’t stop killing
Suffers internal mistaken identity
Devoid of its new reality

That was once a real human being
That was once a real human being
Now a plant that’s just dreaming
Now a plant that’s just dreaming

Life torn apart
Exists as two parts

That was once a real human being
That was once a real human being
Now a plant that’s just dreaming
Now a plant that’s just dreaming

[Fade out]
