I'm the mouse,
You're the house
Snipe a bite of some eats
Suck the bloodsucker dry
Put the LICE in the poLICE
gotta starve the FAT CAT
Every dog has it's flea
Like I'm a worm at the root
Singing sweet victory
Bag of sand/ mud and stone
Fruit and seed/ as above so below
There's vultures under your rug
Roaches flying by night
There's a leech on your back
And it's saving your life

I sing a scavengers anthem
As I lick your PLATE CLEAN
Farm and a seed
I've no reason to heed
Only breed as you feed
I'm just one of ten thousand fleas

Stza
It's the biggest mosquito
That the worlds ever seen
Raccoons in your cans
Are all eating like kings
Who needs to use cash
When there's plenty of trash
Or we could dive in your flesh
And just feed from your Rash

Erik
Raggedy Ragamuffin riff-raff rebel tribe
Sleep away in Golden straw
while the farmer is slashin'
and a'plowin' and sweatin'
to assure every plate's piled tall
Come little boy with your slingshot (slingshot, slingshot) and horn
Send a great fire to swallow (swallow, swallow) the corn
For they'll do it to you
As they did it (did it, did it) to sheep
Sing your song of resistance
So that I might (I might, I might) softly sleep

For when I fall asleep that's when you're wide awake
I wonder if the bed I lie in is one that you made
Put my ear to the street
Heard your hammers in song
I walked away whistling
Glad That I wasn't singing along

I sing a scavengers anthem
As I lick your PLATE CLEAN
farm and a seed
I've no reason to heed
Only breed as you feed
I'm just one of ten thousand fleas

    General CommentCan't believe no one has posted on this song, it is one of the coolest by mischief brew. It seems like just being a squatter or a rebel and just using what society throws away and being free to go and do what you want. I like the lines
    "Put my ear to the street
    Heard your hammers in song
    I walked away whistling
    Glad That I wasn't singing along"
    It shows how carefree he is to not be working and how pleased he is with what hes doing with his life.
