Strip away neurology In a DIY lobotomy You'd kill your own brother, then you'd f*ck your own mother Like a simian sex-pest hanging from a tree 'Cause the people parts like the manners and the arts Are a veneer as thin as dust It's an overlay and if you peel it all away Then you'll realise that you're nothing but a Hungry animal Hungry animal Hungry animal Hungry animal Take it right back to the bottom of the stack To the dinos and the lizards and the snakes It's all f*ck or flight, or take a bite 'Cause your belly is empty and your head is full of rage So you see what you want and grab it with six claws And the other fuckers have to go without It's a reliable compulsion to do the right thing So survival of the species is never in doubt 'Cause you're a Hungry animal Hungry animal Hungry animal Hungry animal (The reptilian complex dominated the brains of dinosaurs And still controls bird and reptile behaviour It is responsible for instinctual behaviours Associated with aggression, dominance and territoriality The paleo-mammalian brain, or limbic system Is a set of interconnected brain structures which arose early in mammalian evolution They are responsible for the motivation and emotion involved in feeding and reproduction The neo-mammalian complex, or cerebral neocortex Is found exclusively in higher mammals And confers the ability for language, abstraction, planning, perception and consciousness The human brain is made up of reptilian, paleo-mammalian and neo-mammalian structures So beneath what makes us human is the vestiges of our primitive ancestors)
