The desert is growing
The wars are threatening
Where's the place in your face?
Where's the place on your plate?

Consumorphic morality
Privatize, desensitize
Hey big fish in the lake
Hey all the small ones now "explain"
Hey big fish in the lake
Hey all the small ones now "explain"
Hey big fish in the lake

What good is all this knowledge we've acquired
In the face of deep realism
After this affront isn't what we choose
Regression into Spartan rule

We can learn to respect each other
And nature govern on a wider scale
Where's the place in your face?
Such a dim conformity
Where's the place on your plate?
Consumorphic morality

The desert is growing
The wars are threatening
Hey big fish in the lake

    General CommentSome parts are wrong, the correct is:
    "Hey big fish in the lake / ate all the small ones, now extinct"
    "What good is all this knowledge we've acquired in the face of deep nihilism"
    "And nature govern on the wider scale"

    General Comment@peib1
    I couldn't tell you if its "extinct" or not. but yeah it is "What good is all this knowledge we've acquired in the face of deep nihilism"? Sounds kind of like an absurd punchline from Nietzsche.... Many PhD dissertations and bar fights have occured on that very question....
