carnivore sink your teeth into the hills
hide your nose if you’re worried they'll find you out
lick your lips clean of lambs meat and innocence
you are killed of the creatures because you kill

herbivore there are meadows and mall parking lots
full of lushes landscape geranium
wash your tongue in these waters you know so well
in the end you'll be begging to bleed to death

and people i need you
swimming so confidant all alone
in your test tube

parasites, you know you’re not welcome here
breaking windows and sneaking under the skin
you are last in the circle the scientists made
to give names to the wild things that live in the woods

warrior, the bullets will bounce from your skin
mix your medicine, and feed the wounds of your men
geronimo, they drove you off of your land
caught and captured, an animal you are

oh darwin, where are you?
we were fools to believe anything
other than what you wrote in your notebook
oh darwin, where are you?
ashes to ashes to
dust to dust
we were fools to believe anything
we were fools to believe anything
