Anthropocene

LYRIC

Monkey: In the jungle we swing amongst the trees with the birds and the berries underfoot
Underhanded behaviour isn't possible we live by the laws of the Jungle by the book
Snake: In the jungle with slither on the ground on our bellies making very little sound Slither into the crannies slither out of the nooks, we live by the laws of the Jungle by the book
Ant: In the jungle we scurry through the grass, with the colony giving lots of sass
Our pincers can bite and on blood we can suck but we live by the laws of the Jungle by the book

Ensemble: The laws of the jungle are the laws of the jungle, the oldest constitution in the universe we know
The laws of the jungle are the laws of the jungle we eat what we eat and we go where we go
The laws of the jungle are not made to be rumbled
We hang In the balance of an everpresent show
The laws of the jungle are the laws of the jungle
Bird: In the jungle we sour and we fly, sniff our prayers out with a golden eagls eye, nests high above the ground far away from the dirt and the muck by the laws of the jungle by the book

Mouse: in the jungle we only want to play but elephant always runs away so we playing near the snout of the Elephant and that has them shook by the laws of the jungle by the book

Elephant: In the jungle we don't forget a thing if we took a size we should be the King but the mice have a scared in the jungle as they screw under foot by the laws of the Jungle by the book

Tiger: In the jungle we snarl and we ro....

Human: hello ..

Tiger: Wait who invited him ? who invited the human? what? No!

The names homosapien, and make no mistake I'm an ape. And I'm takin over the planet
Fresh on the scene with abilities you can't imagine
And from the era of the mammalians I emerge
I make tools like Adobe, throw me a bone I'll make an arrow then fire it at you
Glad to meet you and soon to defeat you
I'm gonna grown you and domesticate you on a worldwide scale and then slaughter you and put your corpse on a plate for later
They say the anthropocene because I burst on the scene like anthrax
Man that's a nice coat, I think I'm gonna shave off your skin and adorn myself with a piece of your fin Mr Sharky
Spark me a cigarette, I domesticate fire too
Shere Khan can't say ****, built his funeral pyre too
North to South I draw deep divisions, The fission of pangea was never quite enough
East to west I pump out emissions, who needs the ozone when you are the best, let the rough times come
I don't even like my own - anthropocentric terminology means that to dehumanises is to debase
But we debase and we're human, when have you ever heard a herd of cattle battle hard in such a snooty way?
Collatoral damage when I fight with my own I'll subdue you and shoe you with spikes in the side till you cry out in pain and you carry me home on your back Mr Horse
I sit on the shoulders of giants, Mr Elephant how dare you insult me?
I am king of the jungle and I want your tusk so you must die but first you exalt me!
As your steward I turn you to stew there's a biblical mandate there too
These opposable thumbs mean I write my shit down y’all must freestyle cos y’all can't write shit with your hooves
Serving extinction with my Rhymes so sublime fine golden toad I wiped you out back in 89
When I walk the ground trembles ,well that ain't true, but when I frack in Oklahoma you gon' feel that fool!
Fish swim try to escape me, I'll overfish your ass out of the water I dare you to bait me!
Chopping trees down in China for chopsticks and chewing on chiwawas, crunching on pigs in the west, bushmeat on the rhinos head, chickens world wide with a side of bread
Beef in my belly means carbon above but we just love to nibble on that stuff
It's not efficient but it's buff, deforestation well who gives a fuck?
We're the homo sapiens and we're living it up with our cars and our planes and our nice new oceans right in the arctic affecting the motion of tides, Eco systems can never survive, life on earth is disposable unless you’re alive in the right place at the right time and the right temperature..
I heat the mic up like u heat up the globe, more rises out of the crowd than the level of the sea more green in my pocket than green forests regrown
I roam the planet in a way that's unique, all continents are mine mark them of with my excrete
Cos' at the Base I'm an animal, just like yourselves and in destroying you I cannibalise myself
At the Base I'm an animal, just like yourselves and in destroying you I cannibalise myself
