If food needed pleasing
You'd suck all the seasoning off
Suck it off

Well, treat me like disease
Like the rats and the fleas
Ahaha! Ahaha!

Bang your head like a gong
'Cause it's filled with all wrong
Ahaha! Clang, clang, clang!

If you think you know enough to know you know we've had enough
And If you think you don't, you probably will

Our tails wagged and then fell off
But we just turned back, marched into the sea

Well, treat me like the sea
Oh-so salty and mean
Ahaha! Oh, ha ha!

Well, treat me like disease
Like the rats and the fleas
Ahahaaa! Haa!

I'll be beating my heart's record for speeding
I'll be beating the record for heart skipping in the dark

Our tails wagged and then fell off
But we just turned back, marched into the sea
..Well, we just turned around, marched into the sea

Take all that you need
Like my sign says for free
Till it's gone, till it's gone

Well discard whom you please
Like the leaves of a tree
Ahaha! Ahaha!

Let's shake hands if you want
But soon both hands are gone!
Oh, haha! Haha!

Well, treat me like the sea
Oh so salty and mean
Ahaha..

Oh, treat me like the sea
Oh-so salty and mean
Ahaha..

Well, treat me like disease
Like the rats and the fleas

Bang your head like a gong
'Cause you call it all wrong
Move your tongue
Clang, clang
Clang, clang
Clang, clang
Clang, claaang!

Cut me down like the trees
Like the lumber or weeds
Drag me out of the sea
Then teach me to breathe
Give me forests half dead
I wish death on myself
Give me forests so dead
I wish death on myself
Ah! Ha! Ha!

Well, we all stumbled round tangled up in our cords from our phones, VCR and our worldly woes
Ahaha!
March on! March on! March on! March Ooooooon!
Well, march on!
