lyrics

Of course evolution is true!
It’s one of the central planks of the modern humanist view
And science is an important tool if you wanna fly to the moon
But on the subject of human nature, Darwin is decidedly mute
Why? Because humans evolved language and culture
And for these things, biological explanations falter
Because behaviour can be altered in infinite ways
So the brain is like a lump of clay just waiting for a sculptor
That’s why sociobiology is so dangerous!
Instead of celebrating the diversity of human symbols and languages
They think it’s all chained to genetic entanglements
Which means there’s no room for change and constant moral evasiveness
If rap is based on human nature then we’re basically fucked!
Just prostitutes and gangsters and thugs
There’s so much more we’re capable of! No way
It’s racist capitalism and patriarchy that makes it so ugly
