lyrics

pack it with news-
-paper and tape it and
throw it away
track the demand
willingly supply it
gladly obey

no, it's not greed
a man has his needs
no way to satiate the endless
drive to consume it
raise it, abuse it,
_ universal termites jumping from

one to the next
technology can
cl-ean up the mess
smart monkeys de-
serve to be wading
up to their necks

swim, white bear, swim
sorry i stuck
my tongue to your pole
i couldn’t shake this
habit alone,
but thanks for the coat
_ universal termites saying “HEY!

you got the brains
i got the remains
let’s call up the guys!
prove we are men
grilling what has been
killed for a price

so far removed from
rock to the head
drag to the cave
and share it with the
village for days
i’m sure i’d partake
_ universal termites broke it down

CHORUS ONE
tastes so good
how could i go without it
it’s natures way to say
“you have outsmarted it”
one more bite, i promise to enjoy it
where will i get my fix
if I can’t slaughter it?

So
what if this intake
can’t be sustained?
will you extinct
all other species
just for the taste?

this is where we
have to agree
that every excuse
you have is just a-
bout to come loose
a change overdue
_ universal termites better just

take only pics
leave only footprints
but don’t make them big
intestines too long
canine teeth too small
you dig and you dig

for reasons to eat
creatures, defeated
born into cages, suffering so
you can receive
this protein you seek
_ universal termites thinking it

CHORUS TWO
tastes so good
how could i go without it
it’s natures way to say
“you have outsmarted it”
one more bite, i promise to enjoy it
where will i get my fix
if I can’t slaughter it?

feels so good
how could i think beyond it
it’s natures way to say
“you made you bed
and it’s not so comfy
now that you can’t cool it”
where did i get my fix
before i squandered it?

maybe we’ll take
our pick of the place
we’ll call it home
maybe we’ll take
our pick of the place
we’ll call it home

this is where we
have to agree
that every excuse
you have is just a-
bout to come loose
a change overdue
_ universal termites better JUST

take only pics
leave only footprints
but don’t make them big
intestines too long
canine teeth too small
you dig and you dig

for reasons to eat
creatures, defeated
born into cages, suffering so
you can receive
this protein you speak of
_ universal termites thinking it

CHORUS THREE
tastes so good
how could i go without it
it’s natures way to say
“you have outsmarted it”
one more bite, i promise to enjoy it
where will i get my fix
if I can’t kill it
