I'm diggin' with my fingertips
I'm ripping at the ground I stand upon
I'm searchin' for fragile bones
(Evolution)
I'm never gonna be refined
Keep tryin' but I won't assimilate
Sure, we have come far in time
(Watch the bow break)

And I'm sorry I don't believe
By the evidence that I see
That there's any hope left for me

It's evolution...
Just evolution...

And I
I do not dare deny
The basic beast inside
It's right here, it's controlling my mind
And why
Do I deserve to die?
I'm dominated by
This animal that's locked up inside

Close up to get a real good view
I'm betting that the species will survive
Hold tight, I'm getting inside you
(Evolution)
And when we're gonna find these bones
They're gonna wanna keep them in a jar
The number one virus caused by
(Procreation)

And the planet may go astray
In a million years they'll say,
those motherfuckers were all deranged

It's evolution...
Just evolution...

And I
I do not dare deny
The basic beast inside
It's right here, it's controlling my mind
And why
Do I deserve to die?
I'm dominated by
This animal that's locked up inside

Take a look around
Nothing much has changed
Take a look around
Nothing much has changed

Take a look around
Take a look around
Take a look around
(Nothing much has changed)
Take a look around
Take a look around
(Nothing much has changed)
Take a look around
Take a look around
(Nothing much has changed)
Take a look around

I
I do not dare deny
The basic beast inside
It's right here, it's controlling my mind
And why
Do I deserve to die?
I'm dominated by
This animal that's locked up inside

Why
Why do I deserve to die?

    My OpinionThis song is called Evolution, and it's mocking evolution. It has nothing to do with creationism.

    Technology and levels of communication have evolved, but have we? Our brains have developed the neocortex, but only on top of the limbic and reptilian brains, our animal brains. They are the main reason for our survivability, adaptability and rapid reproduction.

    The way we are evolving right now, we will eventually evolve into eusociality inside a giant anthill.

    General CommentHere are the lyrics:


    I'm digging with my fingertips
    I'm ripping at the ground I stand upon
    I'm searching for fragile bones
    Evolution
    I'm never gonna be refined
    Keep trying but I won't assimilate
    Sure we've come far in time

    Watch the ground break

    And I'm sorry I don't believe
    By the evidence that I see
    That there's any hope left for me
    Its evolution
    Just evolution

    And I
    I do not dare deny
    The basic beast inside
    Its right here, its controlling my mind
    And why?
    Do I deserve to die
    I'm dominated by
    This animal thats locked up inside

    Close up get and a real good view
    I'm betting that the species will survive
    Hold tight I'm getting inside you
    Evolution
    And when they're gonna find these bones
    They're gonna wanna keep them in a jar
    The number one virus caused by
    Procreation

    And the planet may go astray
    In a millions years they'll
    Those mutherfuckers were all deranged
    Its evolution
    Just evolution



    And I
    I do not dare deny
    The basic beast inside
    Its right here, its controlling my mind
    And why?
    Do I deserve to die
    I'm dominated by

    Take a look around
    Nothing much has changed

    And I

    And why?
    Do I deserve to die
    I'm dominated by
    This animal thats locked up inside

    General CommentWow...I really can't wait until the album is released now...July 31st is FOREVER away. But this song is fucking awesome. As is I Will Protect You. Anyways...if the whole album is as different and amazing as this song, it's going to be a great thing for Korn and all their fans.

    General Commentnice song. And Kudos to OutlawAdidas, I was going to submit the lyrics myself when I saw how messed up the submitted lyrics were. But looks like he already beat me to it.

    Those do look right by the way.

    General CommentI believe it is "watch the bow break" as in bow on a ship
    not "watch the ground break"
