Feathers and a cage too small
Chemicals that make us tall too fast,
Too fast

All my friends look the same,
All of us feel the same pain.
Always pain.

Artificial sunlight here,
Perfectly calibrated year,
And it feels wrong.

So every time I see a man,
I dream about his face in a frying pan;
Human eyeballs on toast.

But when they seared off my beak,
I realized just how weak we are.
We are

And if i had a bigger brain i’d surely find a way
To take my own life
I'd end it all right here before my meat is how they want it
Mmm...

But that might be the only part of my body
That you haven’t tried to change;
My altered life is the worst miracle my peanut can’t imagine
Mmhhm...

    HUMAN EYEBALLS ON TOAST

    feathers and a cage too small
    chemicals that make us tall too fast
    too fast

    all my friends look the same
    all of us feel the same pain
    always pain

    artificial sunlight here
    perfectly calibrated year
    and it feels wrong

    so every time i see a man
    i dream about his face in a frying pan
    human eyeballs on toast

    but when they seared off my beak
    i realized just how weak we are
    we are

    and if i had a bigger brain i’d surely find a way
    to take my own life
    i’d end it all right here before my meat is how they want it
    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    but that might be the only part of my body
    that you haven’t tried to change
    my altered life is the worst miracle my peanut can’t imagine
    mmmmhhhmmmmmmmm

    Please correct them...
    By the way this is my favorite song from Broderick.
