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 CommentSeems pretty obvious to me that it's about not living as an individual. And Josh is the 3rd party observer of what's happening. In the first verse, you have, 'through a park in a haze - traffic going the same way.' Metaphor for following the masses (traffic) without much thought (haze). Then, the ending line, 'a simple system.' Metaphor for society aka the masses. In the second verse, you have, 'free range humans all cooped up' and 'naked clone is playing lame.' Comparing mindless humans to mindless chickens going through the motions in life. Not living an aware, active life.
