Roaming free w/ not a care in the world
The whole savannah is its hunting ground
Hunter becomes the hunted now
Trap is sprung its world is about to change

Chorus 1:
Man is master of all that he surveys
Answers to no-one as told to by god
Taking from nature to display in a cage
But when there's nothing left, what then?

Attacking the cage bars w/ all its might
Biting & tearing & ripping & bleeding
It'll never give up w/o a fight
Tranquilliser dart now puts it to sleep

Awakening in a foreign land
Poked & prodded & put to sleep again
Tests are done to determine health
Where to now only time shall tell?

Zoos are full so it won't go there
Biotech labs readily accept their share
Nano-technology injected into blood
The real fight for life has just begun

Chorus 2:
More machine now than biological
Created by man for his need to kill
Leading to his final obliteration
& When there's nothing left, what then?

Metamorphosis now takes place
Armoured fur & laser red eyes
Claws that can cut through titanium steel
No cage can hold its intent to kill

Keepers run as their creation breaks free
Futile screams echo on sterile walls
Blood-soaked floors, lifeless corridors
A deadly trail leading to freedom
