(From the Inkblot theater show of the same name)

O loathsome crawling thing
Be done with your miniscule affairs
O hungry creeping speck
I release you from your cares Be gone Roach!
You live on carrion That's outrageous
You're probably contagious
Blind crippled and half-squashed
and yet you carry on
Your persistence is disgusting
I could never find myself trusting
A creature that would rather live in the trash than in the lawn
Cockroach your problems are not mine
I love life but with you I draw the line
Not to flaunt my superior design
But next to you I'm practically divine
Cockroach your problems are not mine

    General CommentAgreed. Gotta love this song, especially as it ties in with the rest of the album's concept: the decay and eventual termination of humanity.

    Cockroach, your problems are not mine!
