"Pets" as written by Stephen Perkins, Martyn Lenoble, Peter Distefano and Perry Farrell....
Children are innocent
Teenagagers are fucked up in the head
Adults are even more fucked up
And elderlies are like children

Will there be another race
To come along and take over for us?
Maybe martians could do
Better than we've done
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!

My friend says we're like the dinosaurs
Only we are doing ourselves in
Much faster than they
Ever did
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!

We will make great pets
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We will make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!
We'll make great pets!

    General CommentI remember when I first heard this song I was blown away by how profound it was. Now it doesn't have the same effect on me but I still think it does a great job of conveying how we humans have an over-inflated sense of our cosmic importance despite the fact that in many ways we are petty, insignificant and small.

    General CommentDear dwfp99,
    Sorry you hate the song, the band, music in general - I don't know but if you're curious - Perry Ferrell (also the lead singer for Jane's Addiction if you are unaware) was watching the LA riots on TV and saw the "burning and looting" (R.I.P. Bob Marley) going on and though to himself it's like "pornos for pyromaniacs (fire-lovers) - hence the name. I think it's actually quite a perceptive observation for just a rock star...

    General CommentThanks to TD for turning me onto this song. I like it its gotta really cool misnathropic view of mankind similar to Aenima by Tool. It basically is saying that we have fucked up our world and society and our time as the dominat species will surely end and we will become pets to another species... Cool!
