"In The Days Of Cavemen" as written by and Brad Roberts....
When you go on camping trips you're stuck right out in nature
Foraging the forests like a primate
Using sharpened tools instead of hotplates

Your thumb and forefinger supposed to show you're not a wild beast
You can hear their noises at night time
They don't have to keep a certain bedtime

See in the shapes of my body
Leftover parts from apes and monkeys

Sometimes when I lie awake I hear the rainfall on my tent fly
I think of all the insects that are sleeping
And wonder if the animals are dreaming

See in the shapes of my body
Leftover parts from apes and monkeys

In the days of the caveman and mammoths and glaciers
Bugs and trees were your food then; no pajamas or doctors

And when I finally get to sleep, I dream in technicolor
I see creatures come back from the Ice Age
Alive and being fed inside a zoo cage

See in the shapes of my body
Leftover parts from apes and monkeys

[Repeat x2]
In the days of the caveman and mammoths and glaciers
Bugs and trees were your food then; no pajamas or doctors

    General CommentHe has the perfect voice for this song. In the beginning if you listen carefully, you can hear a duck quacking in the background.

    General Commentthe beginning noises are the best because if you've ever been wilderness hiking someplace nice (i went to isle royale more times that i can remeber) it always brings you back to those evenings sitting just listening

    General CommentIt is about man being disassociated from nature, living a sterile existence, and what it means to go back to cooking over fire, hunting, and farming.
