"Fruit of Knowledge" as written by and Robert Kleiner Kevin Charles Gibson....
Been so long since I've seen you mister
Where'd you get that shirt and what'd you pay for it
Though the pleats leave us in doubt
About the way you're handling a great privilege
Of knowing that without a simple fruit
You would be naked
I have another statement to make sir

clothes on the animals
Clothes on the animals

it wasn't old snake that dressed you
It was temptation of the fruit
That made you realise
That the fabric fits another way
To say the least

you're only judged by the brand name mister
Watcha gonna wear to the impending rapture
And d'you think it will look good on me

clothes on the animals
Clothes on the animals

they know they know
Enough about research
They know they know
Enough about style
They know they know
Enough about science
They know they know
I never luau
They know they know
Enough about denim
They know they know
Enough about heat
They know they know
Enough of the nation
They know they know
Enough about me

as for good taste and judgement
Life's salvation in the form of a brand new wardrobe
The fruition of your destiny
To please so now

praise your good sense of fasion
Praise the lotion on your skin
And your brand new haircut
So now you finally make sense to me

clothes on the animals
Clothes on the animals

they know they know
Enough about research
They know they know
Enough about style
They know they know
Enough about science
They know they know
I never luau
They know they know
Enough about denim
They know they know
Enough about heat
They know they know
Enough of the nation
They know they know
Enough about me

and it seems so funny to me
And it seems so funny to me

they know they know
Enough about research
They know they know
Enough about style
They know they know
Enough about science
They know they know
I never luau
They know they know
Enough about denim
They know they know
Enough about heat
They know they know
Enough of the nation
They know they know
Enough about me

    General CommentYo, the song is using clothes as a metaphor for technology, and fruit as a metaphor for knowledge. It alludes to the story of Genesis where they ate the fruit of knowledge, and then Adam and Eve saw that they were naked and put on clothes. "it wasn't old snake that dressed you/ it was temptation of the fruit" It is not evil that draws us to make technology, but humans are naturally inspired.
    "watcha gonna wear to the impending rapture/ and d'you think it will look good on me" And if technology is evil, then I'll see you in hell.
    On the other hand, "clothes on the animals" degrades humans that we are nothing more than animals with intelligence (true). And may even be criticizing our obsession with distinguishing ourselves from other animals, making fun of our denial that we are animals.
