Jonathan Coulton – Re Your Brains lyrics

Heya Tom, it's Bob, from the office down the hall.
Good to see you buddy, how've you been
?
Things have been O. K. For me except that I'm a zombie now.
I really wish you'd let us in
.
I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand.
But here's an fyi: you're all gonna die screaming.

All we wanna do is eat your brains.
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes
All we wanna do is eat your brains.
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We'll all come inside and eat your brains.

I don't want to nitpick, Tom, but is this really your plan?
Spend your whole life locked inside a mall
?
Maybe that's ok for now but someday you'll be out of food and guns,
Then you'll have to make the call.
I'm not surprised to see you haven't thought it through enough.
You never had the head for all that bigger picture stuff.
But Tom, that's what I do, and I plan on eating you slowly.

All we wanna do is eat your brains.
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes.
All we wanna do is eat your brains.
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We'll all come inside and eat your brains.

I'd like to help you Tom, in any way I can.
I sure appreciate the way you're working with me.
I'm not a monster Tom, well, technically I am.
I guess I am...

Got another meeting Tom, maybe we could wrap it up?
I know we'll get to common ground somehow.
Meanwhile I'll report back to my colleagues who are chewing on the doors
I guess we'll table this for now
I'm glad to see you take constructive criticism well
Thank you for your time I know we're all busy as hell
And we'll put this thing to bed
When I bash your head open

All we wanna do is eat your brains
We're not unreasonable, I mean, no one's gonna eat your eyes

All we wanna do is eat your brains
We're at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We'll all come inside and eat your brains

    Song was made long before l4d2 as part of his album "thing a week two" which he writes a random song each week. I heard this song back in 2006 on the radio which is 2 years before l4d 1 even came out. Please keep your facts straight.
    I will say though it was a funny gem to find it playing on the jukebox in the game though and had me laughing while my friends looked at me wondering what was so funny. The fact that I knew the song was the inside joke from valve ;)
