You are what you are trying to become
Aware of awareness, the evolution
Of consciousness expanding to survive.

Leaping into the branches of the trees
Rapidly through the forest could it be
He was trailing a man? Raised by apes
At his side the hunting knife of his unknown sire.

Evolution. Evolution. Evolution.
He did not know what she meant.
He had no words for his love to be real.

You mastered me. There’s a lord of the jungle
Alive in your heart, a world to be born.

To be born. To be born
Alive in the world, a man to be born
Evolution. Evolution. Evolution. Evolution.
