lyrics

Your world was the same.
And then the changes came.
You fell and stumbled to the bottom of the foo chain.

Alone and depressed.
Convinced you are oppressed.
But time and time again its just the way that fate falls.

On the origin of the species.
Not all of them survive.
Without changing and rearranging what it means to be alive.

You conquered with your greed.
Too many mouths to feed.
The weak became the strong and you were forced to move along.

You hide your motives now.
Afraid for all to view.
The fucked up fragile monster crying deep inside of you.

On the origin of the species.
Not all of them survive.
Without changing and rearranging what it means to be alive.

You know that rules were meant to be broken.
And maybe baby maybe you know I ain't joking.
But nothing is forever because forever dies.
Where one dream is grounded another can fly.
Privilege for some is oppression for all.
Sans a backbone you'll only stand so tall.
The pressure of progress crushing anything still.
Motionless is madness and madness can kill.
Time says yes to rest with the best.
Stomping old ideas with new to test.
Nothing stays stagnant in the ripples of life.
Cutting down barriers like flesh to a knife.

On the origin of the species.
Not all of them survive.
Without changing and rearranging what it means to be alive.
