Lyrics[edit]

    this is evolution
    the monkey
    the man
    and then the gun
    if Christ was in Texas
    the hammer
    the sickle
    the only son
    this is your creation
    the atom of Eden
    was a bomb
    if Jack was the Baptist
    we'd drink wine
    from his head
    
    this is evolution
    the monkey
    the man
    and then the gun
    
    I am a revolution
    pull my knuckles down
    if I could
    I am a revelation
    and I'm nailed
    to the Holy Wood
    
    this is evolution
    the monkey
    the man
    and then the gun
    
    we are dead and tomorrow's canceled
    because of things we did yesterday
    we are dead and tomorrow's canceled
    they crucify us in our space
    in our space
    in our space...
    
    this is evolution
    the monkey
    the man
    and then the gun
    ...flies are waiting
