"Intelligent Animals" as written by Michael Coles, Robert Coles and Mark Jonathan Harle....
They'd spend a lifetime and fight over lines
Which you and me could never control
I'm feeling a sense of imaginable loss over people I don't even know
We used to be such intelligent animals
Lamenting the loss of intelligent animals

If Darwin could see what we turned out to be
He'd probably admit he was wrong
So pray to Saint Christopher down and on your knees
'Cause in fifty years we'll all be gone
We used to be such intelligent animals
So, tell me where are these intelligent animals
Keep walking away you intelligent animals, animals, animals

Now we behave like we lost our control
Now we behave like we lost our control
Now we behave like

Because Darfur is a place without history,
Darfur is a place without politics.
Darfur is simply a dot on the map.
It is simply a place, a site, where perpetrator confronts victim.
And the perpetrator's name is Arab, and the victim's name is African.
And it is easy to demonize.
It is easy to hold a moral position which is emptied of its political content.
This bothered me, and so I wrote about it.

Oh, intelligent animals
Intelligent animals
Intelligent animals
And animals, animals
