This is a vocal "cover" of the track "CAFO", written by Animals As Leaders.
Original lyrics taken from a poem called "Reforged" by Justin Cole.

lyrics

The most destructive, yet passionate instrument, given to us as a stolen artifact.
Prometheus held it in his hands and said:
"The lesser ones will appreciate this."
Fire: a gift, given to us.
We use it to light our cigarettes.
To burn old crops.

A new tongue to set forth to the masses.
My quill, a sharpened blade to pierce your heart.
"The lesser ones will appreciate this."
Fire: a gift, given to us.
Do my words reach you?
Do they infect you like a disease?
If they don't, will you let them consume you?
If they don't, will you burn them out and you reforge yourself?
Prometheus held it in his hands and said: ...
