Children are innocent
A teenager's fucked up in the head
Adults are even more fucked up
And elderlies are like children

Will there be another race
To come along and take over for us?
Maybe martians could do
Better than we've done
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!

My friend says we're like the dinosaurs
Only we are doing ourselves in
Much faster than they
Ever did
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!

We will make great pets
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We will make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!

    Rfid mandatory implants/ slaves to society this is what will become of many. They will think it is a great idea but once you make that choice, you are now no longer your own but belong to the govt.

    The song is just about being insignificant in the larger scheme of things. We are born innocent, we die being like children, except less innocent. And who cares? We are not that important. In the end, we will make great pets.

    I think this song is a precurser for what is to come and what we are already classified as to the universe

    We will be very good pets to a more superior race that comes along to take over because we are destructive and we don't know what we are doing like animals.

    If another alien race comes to planet earth to take over and are presumably able to, then this song is about a possible option for humans to become pets of the alien race because the metaphor between humans and pets implies that we are adorable when young, but turn into self, people, and environment destroying beings, then regress back to being innocent because we lack the physical and mental atrocities that we once had when we were in the "prime years. "
