A piece about the primal brutality of man!
Tailless, spineless, fucking mindless
Fearful, naked apes drawn to the fire
Deep in the flames, a glistening prize
Far from their hands, their grasping reach
And as they stand, stagger to their feet
Know each would feast upon his brother
Snuff out his light and children smother
Bloodied, bald beneath a darkened sky
Turn blinkered eyes toward the night
Never comprehend the sights they see
But while naked apes sit around the fire
Talk foolish chatter and inane patter
Flames chase away their primal fears
Dumb it all down with one more beer!
