Parasites will be excited when you're dead
Eyes bulging, ants are in your head and
All your thoughts, yeah, they rot
God and Satan, they gamble when you're dead
Beams of light, one's bright, the other's burning instead
And all your thoughts, yeah, they rot
It was hot and time was sticking to my skin
To all the punch lines of the jokes they won't let us in on
And all your thoughts, yeah, they rot

    General Commentyeah, this is an Ugly Cassanova song...
    the real lyrics are (as printed in the cd insert):
    The parasites are excited when you're dead,
    eyes bulging, entering your head.
    And all your thoughts.
    They rot.
    God and satan they gamble when you're dead.
    Beams of light, one sprite the bourbon instead.
    And all your thoughts.
    They rot.
    It was hot and time was sticking to my skin.
    We're all the punch line to a joke that they won't let us in on.
    And all your thoughts.
    They rot.

    General Commentuh, isaac wrote this song in 1996, before ugly casanova was a twinkle in his eye.

    they first played it at the '96 dub narcotics session.

    General Commentwrong lyrics

    it's NOT a modest mouse song anyway

    it's ugly cassanova and I think it's called "parasites"
