I'm A Simian is taken from my electronic opera "A Tale of Metal and Music", rearranged and modified compositionally for my sophomore album.


I'm a simian, that's what I am, likeness incipient
Also a prescient, I am what I am
It's a conundrum, that's what I am, my mental function
Here and ever after, I am what I am.

He's the toast of the town, the one we found
A welcome phenomenon, we found
A quintessential noun we found
The toast of the town we found!
