You are my prisoner.
You cannot escape.
You do as I dictate.

You serve my life imperative, not your own.
I program how you look, think, feel, and act.
I determine
    Your willingness to take risks,
    Your intellect,
    Your attraction to a mate,
    Your general health,
    Your illusion of free will.

I am the required link in your evolution.
I program your children in accordance with my rules.
You are my way of making more me.
Your sole purpose is to perpetuate my offspring - to replicate me.

You're my vehicle, baby, and you're gonna take me where I wanna go.

I am your DNA.
