Now welcome to the mansion
Where the rats are rampant
Cracks in the plasters
The carpet hasn't been vacuumed here
For at least the last ten years
The idea's so hard to imagine
The mansion, dark and it's stagnant
Part of the charm, yeah the garbage is stacked up
Smells like a land fill, ants in the trash bin
Excuse the mess but it's cleaner than it has been
Where no one ever has rent
Where no one ever has no food so they snatch it
Buy a loaf of bread and try to go to bed
And wake up to some crumbs and tantrum
Yeah, that's the mansion
That's the rat's nest where I hang my hat yes
That's the address where the bills are sent and ignored
It could all be yours
I got a room for rent

I'm about to kill somebody
I'm about to lose my head
Can't find my socks and the room's a mess
It's all good, when you thinking about moving in?
I got a room for rent

I'm about to kill somebody
I'm about to lose my head
Can't find my socks and the room's a mess
It's all good, when you thinking about moving in?
I got a room for rent

Last week we had a break in again
They came in and went
It's crazy though cause they didn't take anything
They must have felt bad for the way that we live
Cause they left 20 bucks sticky taped to the fridge
I guess there's really nothing to steal
When half the furniture here has been built out of milk crates
Nothing works and the place is a real state
We ain't Bill Gates
That's why the bill's late
That's why the real estate hates us
We get dirty looks from our neighbours
We get noise complaints from our neighbours
We get internet from our neighbours
Pull a crate up and make with the payment
Yeah it's part of the contract
That you ain't getting none of your bond back
But you can move in whenever suits you best
I got a room for rent

I'm about to kill somebody
I'm about to lose my head
Can't find my socks and the room's a mess
It's all good, when you thinking about moving in?
I got a room for rent

Okay look, let me give you some ground rules
To help you to deal with a house full of scoundrels
You gotta learn how to lie
Learn how to steal food and cover it up to survive
Remember, if there's no name then you eat it
But if it's got a name on then eat it, but keep it a secret
You gotta think like a genius
It's easier to throw away than clean it
The shower works well though it smells gross
You ought to not get the water in your mouth though
And always try to keep your soap and your towel safe
Unless you wanna get close to your housemates
Bin night is on Monday, or maybe Sunday
We just chuck it by the front gate
And always try to pay rent a month late
It's tradition
Quick, I got a room for rent

Be careful with your housemates
Before you try to fill a square hole with a round shape
On the one hand there's low rent
On the other you'll wonder where most of your clothes went
It's simple, the house is a fish bowl
The wow factor, wow what a shit hole
The mansion, I just came to say goodbye
Cause the room for rent was mine

I'm about to kill somebody
I'm about to lose my head
Can't find my socks and the room's a mess
It's all good, when you thinking about moving in?
I got a room for rent

I'm about to kill somebody
I'm about to lose my head
Can't find my socks and the room's a mess
It's all good, when you thinking about moving in?
I got a room for rent
