Aeons ago, the creation
Of man began sculpting itself.
Onward they traveled and grew.
Centuries passed, climates changed, species dissolved.

From the untamed dark cold caves
Emerged a primal mind
Armed with some basic instincts.
Animal, man, machine - primitive mind.

Years of development passed,
The human race declined.
We leap into the era:
Animal, man, machine - mechanical mind.

The remains of what's left are few
As the four footed posture becomes two.
From carving stone to carving steel,
From crude construction to the ultimate machine.

From the untamed dark cold caves
Emerged a primal mind
Armed with some basic instincts
Animal, man, machine - primitive mind.

Years of development passed,
The human race declined.
We leap into the era:
Animal, man, machine - mechanical mind.

Thousands of years; errors to show
What we've done,
What we've become.
We commence to slowly decompose.

Humans thirst for discovery:
A decadent force with no ken for excess.
Mankind's extinction is assured
With the endless involvement of the mechanized race.

We'll be superfluous.
We'll be overthrown.
A path to extinction
Of natural life.

Animal, man, machine...

    General CommentWell.... Sort of obvious, what humanity had become since the primitive days of evolution. To me three high bite here is the music, Ouroborus is awesome and precise... They can sing about Hanna Montana's yeast infection and I still would listen to them!!!
