I once met Eric, yes, I looked him in the eye
He really thinks that it's his right to decide how the world should die
With oil wells and violence, he thinks he runs the city
It was pretty, now it's shitty, but we're far too cool to cry

I once met Eric, yes, I think he was confused
He doesn't see any connection between dominance and fruit
He knows he has the power but he thinks that it's just fate
That one bird's his national symbol and the other's on his plate
Fancies hipster, Tarzan hunters, says he does it like the caveman
But I know he gets his steak in saran wrap in aisle ten

I once met Eric, and so I tried to be polite
Because I know how what is normal gets confused with what is right
He says that I'm self righteous, and I say, "is that the case?"
I just thought I knew my place on the food chain

On the food chain
On the food chain
On the food chain
On the food chain
On the food chain
On the food chain
On the food chain
On the food chain

Don't get me wrong, eat what you like, especially if you are a girl
And I agree that there just might be bigger issues in the world
'Cept I think it's all connected and I think that it's a shame
That despite all our technology we're running out of brains
Cuz the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain

Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain
Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain
Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain
Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain
Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain
Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain
Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain
Yeah, the things we need the most are the things we can't sustain

I once met Eric, yes, but he was just a boy
And so I traded in his weenie for some soy
