Track Name: Mammals 2012 [feat. Siddharth Basrur and Sunneith Revankar]
by Siddharth Basrur and Sunneith Revankar

Opposable thumbs and some unwanted skin
Positions to be filled
Care for your young as they watch you grow old
Decisions to be made

Passed on and forever rampant.
My kin will carry the sacred fire of the elders.
Primate. Hunched.
The stones will reign supreme.
The stones will reign supreme.

We have a plan
We can make decisions

Grunts and babble hold the order
Bend enough to smell the ground, its essence you will remember.
From the ground to the sky.
The ones that soar will look up to the crawling for advice.
But they will only babble.
