Children are lovely before they get ugly and learn to do bad stuff
Flowers are pretty before they get shitty, and rot and turn to dust
I heard that life is a wheel and you can't make it stop
if you try it'll flatten your head
It's a circle of shit we're in the middle of it, but soon we'll all be dead
Like everybody else that's ever lived before
the things you make fall to the floor
and nobody knows how hard you tried
it's been that way since the start of time
There was a cavema that did some amazing things
but nobody here gives a fuck
And in a thousand years they'll feel the same
towards all the things you've done
So don't worry what might give you cancer
or stay up nights just wanting answers
It's just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
Things start off they're so terrific, they'll fuck up it's scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you
Love at first sight on a beatiful night and a feeling that's so divine
Gets sucked down the toilet cuz something will spoilt it
with the good times left behind you
Don't try to figure out who's at fault powerful forces abound
Like a twig on a river in the universe tomorrow you'll probably drown
So don't worry if it is a tumuor, all this will be over sooner
it's just a crap shoot, but its mostly crap
Things start off they're so terrific, they'l fuck up it's scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you, or you
And all the things that matter most disappear, here's a toast
to erosion and corrosion, altimzers and pain
Don't try to figure out who's at fault there's powerful forces at play
and if you lose your legs and have to beg it's really all the same
so don't worry what might give you cancer
or stay up nights just wanting answers
Just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
Things start off they're so terrific, they'll fuck up its scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you, or you
don't worry if it is a tumour, all this will be over sooner
it's just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
things start off they're so terrific, they'll fuck up it's scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you or you
