I liked the lyrics, chaosblade, but I've one complaint. You should change the title to "Development of the Mind". In evolutionary biology, only populations can evolve, never individuals.

Repeat with me: invididuals develop, populations evolve :)

Of course you can use evolution in it's vulgar form, to mean change, but this usage sounds too much like Julian Huxley's notions of inevitable progress in evolution and like-minded ideas.

Changing the title of your song to "Development of the Mind" you'll sound much more serious to any evolutionary psychologist who might read the lyrics.

BTW, feel free to ignore my complaint. It’s just that I can’t help it when I see a mistaken use of the word evolution :p
