lyrics

Since he crawled from the sea
Ate bananas and swung on trees
Man has always swung a stick
To meet his needs

Dance monkey, monkey dance
Fling shit, exploit the land

Competition, animosity, and fear
Cloud our vision
Domination in a system
Power truly is man’s religion

Hope for peace
Shake your indignant fist
And fantasize of an end
To desperation, friction and blight
We’re too deep in loathing and short of sight

Man fights for flags, he fights for freedom,
But in reality, man is the demon

You’re a fool
If you think the law protects you
You’re naïve
If you think a savior is due
Don’t expect rights
Don’t pray for power, invoke might

At every level
In every form
Brutality is the norm
Man versus man, tribe versus clan
Nations devour the land

Fight monkey, monkey fight
Spread your disease, spread your version of right

Competition, hate and fear
Cloud our vision
Domination in a system
Power truly is man’s religion
You’re a fool
If you think the law protects you
You’re naïve
If you think a savior is due
Don’t expect mercy
Don’t pray for power, invoke might

At every level
In every form
Brutality is the norm
Ask yourself who writes history
It’s the monkey who wins

I’m sorry but if history has shown
Societies come and go
Nothing ever changes
Chaos is the norm
There will be no end to war
