Entitled There Are Too Many of Us, this new track speaks of the ills of today’s society: overpopulation, religious fanaticism, conformity, sheeple, and general co-dependence. “There are too many of us / In tiny houses, here and there / Just passing out somewhere / But you don’t care / There are too many of us / It’s plain to see / We all believe in praying / For our immortality.”
