lyrics

They are lying to you
With their shapeless, unassuming faces spouting unable
to hold my composure tears
Golden hay hair, bronze skin
Teasingly crossed legs flowing from red pencil skirt
Impassioned pleas tweaked with the fine pliers of the craftspeople in the next room

They have an undeniable charm
But mistake not, they are first and foremost survivors
Their spoiled cubs are waiting in their cozy dens to be fed
and they don't like to wait

They earn your trust making you temporarily forget
the fundamental, speciesistic differences between you
Hypnotizing with silky modified voices and pendulum tails
Exploit your inferior analytical skills,
your desperate search for a symbiotic ally
But they will lead you, have no doubt my rabbits
They will lead you to your demise

And when your back collapses under the weight that you offer to carry
Leg breaks as you attempt to keep stride
And the poison from their festering bite has you running from the water
There will be no aide supplies
There will be no experts with answers
There will be no meals arriving by your bed side
There will be no watchful eyes over your children

But in your weakness they will slink in
and take all that you have
Paralyzed with finally opened eyes
