Lyrics to song Anxious Darwinians by The Agonist

Halted embryogenesis at the birth of second thought
Creating before acting to stay safely at the start.
Textbook nebula authentic to the World Orders end.
But we dictate through creation just how and where and when.

The sound of self-severed limbs.
Broken joints on cold steel links.
Impossible havens harbor them.
Damp floors carve swollen skin.
The long-sought elusive passage keys!
Where once was a door, now stands a wall.
Concrete beds prevent digging deep.
Leonine threats behind bamboo stalks.

And anxious Darwinians frantically self-analyse,
Too ultimately aware to trust anyone alive.
Toxic, parasitic ideas hijack our minds.
Mimetically commandeered to induce the suicide.

The privacy of experience. The illusion of focus.
The future is anticipated memory. The virulence of idea.

Halted embryogenesis at the birth of second thought
Creating before acting to stay safely at the start.
Textbook nebula authentic to the World Orders end.
But we dictate through creation just how and where and when.

Vanitas on aged pages, copper violin.
Incumbent phrenology to drain you of your doubts.
Dont call my landscape a plane, you increate egoist!
Youre merely a hallucination of my own atmis!

Volition decides the future as the authors all agree,
Impatiently arranging for evolutions recrudescence.
Visual receptors are undeniably unique
In a closed Cartesian Theater,
Body anchored to the seat.

Pressuposed conclusions, methodic doubt.
An escaped res cogitans flees to an inter-subjective world.
Passive beliefs bridge the chasm, mind pregnant at birth.

The danger, dear empiric
Is that to which Narcissus succumbed, and still do, some.
Fountainheads, automatons.
To subordinate genetic interest is ultimately human!
Rampant self-awareness in your invisible Hands
Means everything is fickle, subject to your shape and shade.
How will you, dear eremite program your semaphore?
Self-preservation is subject to an emotional homunculus.

And anxious Darwinians frantically self-analyze,
Too ultimately aware to include the suicide.

Halted embryogenesis at the birth of second thought
Creating before acting to stay safely at the start.
Textbook nebula authentic to the World Orders end.
But we dictate through creation just how and where and when.
