I see you go
Through a park in a haze
And I don't listen
For traffic going the same way
A simple system, yeah
I string 'em up
I cut 'em down
Dare I say

To to to to to
To to to to to
To to to to to

A perfect vision
Some simple ways to let you know
Free range humans all cooped up
Naked clone is playing lame, yeah
I string 'em up
I cut 'em down
Dare I say

To to to to to
To to to to to
To to to to to
To to to to to
To to to to to
To to to to to

    General CommentI agree. Perhaps he's alluding to the fact that humans are for all their intricacies are just animals. Consumers and the consumed and somewhere along the way have forgotten this so he sees humour in the fact that we're mortal, that we're animals and that somehow we think we're better than other animals and feels we can escape our fate, which is to provide food for other things. At the end of the day, only cremation stops us feeding the worms. Just like Romero did with Dawn Of The Dead and belittled man through his consumerism allegory, I feel Homme does this too. I feel he mocks man for his attempts to separate himself from nature only to be seduced into other forms of consumerism, be it drug use or materialism...perhaps that is why he covered Never Say Never.
