<p>Individuals run for cover,
For the multitudes of thoughtless clones
Have reached a critical mass. (Have reached a critical mass)
Individuals hide in fear, under cover,
Sheltered by the wafer thin veil of intelligence. (Thin veil of intelligence)

Individuals, nowhere to be seen...

Urbana is oozing like a bloated carcass
With maggots cooking in the desert heat, (Cooking in the desert heat)
Oozing, with progeny writhing and desperate
For input from someone more determined. (Someone more determined)

Congregating in invisible circles,
Half apart and half a part,
All too aware of the insignificance,
Pushing on with soul and heart.

Individuals don't pray for forgiveness,
When pinned up against the wall
under siege of persecution, (Under siege of persecution)
Individuals command exception,
And accept dichotomy,
Maybe you can't choose anymore. (Maybe you can't choose anymore)

Procreation without gain or purpose,
Languid wills and torped minds,
Catapulted ever faster
By the arrow of time...

You take yours and I'll keep mine!

Individuals...
