"Heist" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds....
You don't stop
Follow me into the great unknown
Where pink flamingos grow
Diet soda flows
And what you take magically regenerates
On supermarket shelves
The ovens clean themselves
You don't pay the tab 'til the last drop
So we all ride for nothing
'Cause this train never stops
Da da da da da da da da da da
We make a good team,
Me and you, we do
You could scratch my back
And I'll scratch my back too
When Everyone is welcome at the party, yeah
People more is more
Ah we all want more
You don't pay the tab 'til the last drop
So we all ride for nothing
'Cause this train never stops
Da da da da da da da da da da
You don't stop
You don't pay the tab 'til the last drop
So we all ride for nothing
'Cause this train never stops.

    General CommentIt's a cute song, definately... but the first few seconds (you don't stop, you don't stop) make me almost sick. Hate it.

    General Commentlol i dont mind the first bit. Its a pretty good song and it has a good message about the perfect life. Did you know that there are more fake flamingos in america than there are real ones, amazing huh!
    this is a groovy song, but its not my favourite ben song, far from it.

    General CommentI don't know if it has much of a message. Alot of it really does sound pretty much what those animals would have thought. Everything is free, autorestocks, cleans itself, pink flamingos grow everywhere, diet soda flows .... they don't realize exactly how much people have to do with all of that, it's all foreign, even to RJ a bit. The song pretty much narrarates the scene ...
