"Alligators Getting Up" as written by Toni Halliday and Dean Garcia....
Grow out of your obsessions
You think you're bad, but I'm badder than you
'Cause mine has come through consideration,
While your reaction is nothing new
So go on genius, be who you are
You're so flat and one dimensional

[Chorus:]
If you go my way, you won't go wrong
You'll find out where you really belong
If you search it out, it will make you strong
Then you'll go on and on and on and on

You want what's mine, but you don't deserve it
One tenth is all you can have
Why care, why share?
Stamp your feet 'cause life's unfair
Why care, why share?
Stamp your feet 'cause life's unfair

[Chorus]

You have to watch for the smallest details
Just to stop the alligator from getting up
The alligator from getting up [Repeat x 3]

    General CommentThis song is really aweosme, although I'm not really sure of the importance of the alligator getting up part. I still love it though.

    General CommentWell, The explanation isn't in the line itself, but throughout the song. In the first verse the suggested topic is that anything this person does is purely instinctual, not being derived of thought or reflection.

    The second verse describes the same thing but in a different way. Rather then attacking on an intellectual standpoint, they further the idea of selfish-ness, only caring for ones self.

    If you put those ideas together, you get the characteristics of a simple minded animal, one that is purley instict, withought having "human" traits.

    Keeping an alligator from getting up takes constant supervision, and cunning.
