The Taker Story
Can you name me a living creature That kills it's competitors for food? And when they're gone he kills the Competitors of its food's food too I'm talking about the birds, the aphids The insects, and the trees 'Cause there's innumerable extinct species among these We've been enacting a story for 12,000 years The one that says that man must follow no natural law The one that says that man is distinctly separate From every living thing That man is the end result of evolution That man is the end result of evolution Yes the clan of Cain killed the clan of Abel So that Cain could bear the fruit of Abel's land So man has been killing his brother from the Beginning of the agricultural revolution Mass killings and mass graves, globalization of slaves Genocide and extinction All the functions of civilization Mass killings and mass graves, globalization of slaves Genocide and extinction All the functions of civilization Yes you know that the war will never be over 'Cause war is our bread and butter 'Cause we're living a lie that says there's no place for any other Living creature that doesn't think like you and me Yes now we're going to the root of the Taker Story We decide what's good and bad for the entire universe And if what you do don't work for us we'll turn you into dust You savages are wild so naked and so free If you don't want to die you have to live like me You Takers take and take and take and take and take You Takers take and take and take and take and take So even though you won't believe it native people are still around They treat the earth with respect they know it's sacred ground They live in remote places the takers still can't colonize They are the true voice of reason they have nature's eyes They've been enacting the story for 3 million years The one that says that human must obey natural law The one that says that human is connected to every living thing That man is only one strand in the web of life Take the dagger out your mind Take the Taker out your soul When you do you'll find The Taker's lost control The Taker's lost control The Taker's lost control The Taker's lost control The Taker's lost control The Takers take and take and take and take and take
