You've been playing snakes and ladders all your life
You never thought that you were wasting all your time
Now I'm gonna tell you: let's play "Pass the Pigs"
So come on throw your pigs and win by reaching number six

A long time ago the gifts were given by the gods
That day you didn't show your face at all
Now I'm gonn ask you: where do you belong?
The human being's supposed to be the best of all

The missionary position's leading back to number one
You thought you had some points, but now you have none

You're just one of the bloody freaking mass
The very best of the breed in your literature class..?
My patience has been worn out by your self esteem
How can you say Lord Byron used to play in your dream team?

Ask a silly question - Get a silly answer
You comedy of contradictions is your final cancer
If this is what you are, then I say: NO!
If this is all you say then I say: NO! NO! NO!

The missionary position's leading back to number one
You thought you had some points, but now you have none

All the natural and good willing forces of the earth
Are worth being respected since your time of birth
But I know you'll betray them - for your dumb regime
Forget your ugly face 'cause you don't count more than anything

Cold is the heart of the empty
In the end you will cry for mercy

Ask a silly question - Get a silly answer
You comedy of contradictions is your final cancer
If this is what you are, then I say: NO!
If this is all you say then I say: NO! NO! NO!

The missionary position's leading back to number one
You thought you had some points, but now you have none

You've been playing snakes and ladders all your life
You never thought that you were wasting all your time
Now I'm gonna tell you: let's play "Pass the Pigs"
So come on throw your pigs and win by reaching number six

    Song Meaningi think this is about living life differently from what we are supposed to.

    It says 'youve been playing snakes and ladders all your life' I think it refers to working hard, trying to get a raise, then earning money, and then you fall, but then again you try to get back up. But then it tells you theres a different way to live life, you can live differently.

    "All the natural and good willing forces of the earth
    Are worth being respected since your time of birth
    But I know you'll betray them - for your dumb regime"
    this is quite clear, and i think here resides the whole meaning of the song.

    "The missionary position's leading back to number one
    You thought you had some points, but now you have none"
    ok, here it says, than once you get to know another way of living, youll realize all you did was worth nothing in the end.
