CHORUS:

Give your child a gun to kill a natural reaction
Wrap him up in film and he will be your movie star
It's a sad world...but even the scars forget the wound

So natural to keep the world at your feet
The same children run from vegetables
That speak daily to the dead
It's natural, oxygen dirt bloodstains skin and sexual tension
Wanting more than you can have
Having more than you know what to do with
It's natural, running in front of cars
You'll probably live forever
Paint your face with plastic, naturally
Smile like a sunrise
Smile like a cash register
A smile like only a lonely child can do
He's your last four dollars so spend him well
Like only a lonely child can do
Like only a lonely child can do

Security on a Saturday morning
Fishing glory out of the garbage with a rope of gold

CHORUS

We don't look so good, anonymous bruises and such
Who knew "forgive and forget" would be used as a crutch
Making yea-yea-guy-sparkletooth-photo-op-agreements with our perpetrators
We pay allegiance to the Worldwide Windshiled Wiper.
And it could be a good thing to limp and smile at the same time
But not if you'll be limping through a funeral line
History is last year's fashion design:
Forgetting the whole thing I just said so you can hear my next rhyme.
So natural to keep the world at your feet
Got your name in a book somewhere, there's no need to speak
It's natural oxygen tanks sweat stains Pre-milenium tension
Everything you own in numbers
Looking for love and all you find are numbers
Buying gifts for 146-862 47, 67, 37
XO XO
Natural like maltodextrin and Yellow #5
Life's glow comes from the shoeshine
Naturally one important piece in a big machine
Plug the incubator in and read a magazine
The children will be presidents and beauty queens
So
Smile like a factory
He's your last four dollars so spend him well
Like only a lonely child can do
Like only a lonely child can do

CHORUS

    General Commentthey suck, they're trying to rip off 311. you should be ashamed ate 16, for posting such posers. if they were true 311 fans then they'd have cought the message "COME ORIGINAL"

    General Commentqueveralives, gruvis malt is quite possibly the most original, refreshing bands out today. Their singer sounds a bit like one of the guys from 311, but vocals can sound like other vocals. To conclude, go listen to some shitty nu metal or uncreative music, you homosex.

    General Commentfirst off, if i was gay, i probably wouldn't talk like shit like i do, and probably wouldn't fuck girls at night. and anyway, i'm continuning on my quest to hate Gruvis Malt, they suck and are not original whatsoever. so fuck off and go listen to another band trying to be like 311
