Two fat men were walking through the forest
Walking through the forest
Both of them in chorus
Oh my god it’s a tiny little native
Tiny little native
Thank god we found him

We’re just hanging out so please go home
We ain’t talking that loud so leave us alone

Burn the huts and rape the women
Show them how to save their souls
Toss the sinners in the bonefire
Teach them how to love control

Cast them out and point the finger
Blame them for what’s wrong these days
Turn them into perfect people
Teach them how to love control

(Control. Control. Control.)

Two fat pigs were walking down the street
And walking down through park
And looking for some trouble

Came upon a ratty little faggot
Whiny little faggot

We’re just hanging out so please go home
We ain’t talking that loud so leave us alone

We’ve got questions if you’ve got the answers
If you’ve got no answers, we have got some questions

What’s got eight legs
And I giant ego
Fleeing like a demon
Staring at his Jesus

We’re just hanging out so please go home
We ain’t talking that loud so leave us alone

Burn the huts and rape the women
Show them how to save their souls
Toss the sinners in the bonefire
Teach them how to love control

Cast them out and point the finger
Blame them for what’s wrong these days
Turn them into perfect people
Teach them how to love control

(Control. Control. Control.)

    General CommentI think this song is about how hypocritical we are as a nation, and how we try to change every one to follow our tainted ways.

    General CommentThis song is a contrast between the past and the present and how even though many things have changed hate remains through the ages. The song begins with the discovery of the Native Americans and how their culture was raped by the founders of our country and then goes on to address present forms of hate such as gay bashing. They also show how hate and hypocrisy usually go hand in hand when they say "Burn the huts and rape the women/Show them how to save their souls." The line: "Teach them how to love control" signifies the corruption of a peaceful people.

    General CommentI think it's about how the government is so quick to point fingers at others when they themselves are the ones who are causing the problems, but they're trying to cover it up by blaming it on others, like the minorities, I guess.

    But I think wiretapscars' explanation makes more sense than mine does.

    I don't understand the 'what's got eight legs .. staring at his jesus' part. I'm guessing he's talking about America again, but then I don't get the eight legs part. Is he .. comparing America to a spider? aha. I don't know.

    General CommentThe song is about hate and how no matter what there's always going to be hate. It's not my favorite song but it's kind of catchy

    General Commentwhy would you question lola ray? its not like they actually think like that.

    i think it has to do with when europeans came to america, and put all the indians into slavery, and tryed to make them christian...but maybe thats just on my mind cause i just finished my social studies homework. but i have been trying to figure out this song forever. i might just break down and ask them.

    General Commentits about people in general going into places and ripping the natives out of their rightful place and then trying to convert them to their religion

    I think alot of it is based with the spanish going into mexico and such

    General CommentWow.
    Okay, guys. This song isn't racist. It goes the other way around.
    Remember that John is filipino?
    Well that's what this song is about. It's even in some bio of the band. This is his protest against the treatment of not only his people, but other people who have been taken over and killed and destroyed because of egocentrism.
    So don't go hating Lola Ray. They're the ones in the right about this.
    The fat men in the song are the ones you should hate.
