When you go on camping trips,
You're stuck right out in nature.
Foraging the forests like a primate.
Using sharpened tools instead of hot plates
Your thumb and forefinger
Sometimes when I lie awake,
when I finally get to sleep,
supposed to show you're not a wild beast.
I hear the rainfall on my tent fly.
I dream in Techni color.
You can hear their noises at night time
I think of all the insects that are sleeping,
I see creatures come back from the Ice Age
They don't have to keep a certain bed time.
and wonder if the animals are dreaming.
alive and being fed inside a zoo cage.
See in the shapes of my body
leftover parts from the apes and monkeys
[Extended Chorus (play 2nd and 3d time through)]
In the days of the caveman,
and mammoths, and glaciers.
Bugs and trees were your food then
no pajamas, or doctors.
