lyrics

Oh shame on the mothers of mortals/ Who do not stoop to teach/ 
The sorrow that lies in dear dumb eyes/ The sorrow that has no speech. —Ella Wheeler Wilcox

dear sir supervenience
thank you for the lenience
to impose my superiority
over the majority
for i am man
hear me roar!
i made an assembly line
to grind
my guns and gore

one century one score
one decade seven years ago
freedom meant equality
in happy opportunity
with our articulating tongues
and our opposing well-formed thumbs
we used a language and a pen
to say no more oppression
but for those with different tools
we’ll make exceptions
saying ten sometimes equals ten
and sometimes equals zero
and humans are sometimes tools
and sometimes animals
which are almost always tools

a tool is made
made to behave

thou shalt love me
kill build work die
all for me
sound familiar?
are we god or nature?
i got a big fear of being nothing
so i made you suffer
for my suffering 


dear god of convenience
thank you for your lenience
to enforce my superiority
over the minority
for I am man
hear me roar!
i made an assembly line
to grind
my guns and gore
