It's your birthright
It's home-grown
Passed on from the father side to son

It's a gene pool
It's your landscape
It's conditioning grips you can't break

Get this feeling I'm in prison
Gotta break out, file in fruitcake
Try and fake it
With the real men
Trying to fill my father's size ten

I'm a late child
I'm a love child
It's enough child I'm appealing
I'm appealing
I'm appealing
To a need we've all been feeling

Get a suit on
Think you're full-grown
All these grown-ups
Don't know how to break down
See the monkeys
At the party
Getting high on the latest technology

Got to hide you
Got to shave you
For a man you're two genes too few
See the monkeys
At the party
All these apes are chewing on fishknives

    General CommentIs he trying to say something like we are still like monkeys deep down inside? David Byrne said it much better on Factory life.
