"Eyes of the Squirrel" as written by and Les Claypool Jay Lane....
The eyes of the squirrel are watching
The eyes of the squirrel are watching

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
Barry swing his bat
Piano playing cats
Big mouth drunken whores

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
Drama that's for free
On reality TV
Where's that tuna casserole

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
The eyes of the squirrel are watching

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
As we change our minds
At least a half a dozen times
I will lead the reveille

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
The oil's constant flow
Through the gulf of Mexico
Anyone for battered shrimp?

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
The eyes of the squirrel are watching

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
Some idiot start to fester
Where he shot that child molester
Some call him hero, some call him con

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
Another arrogant ass
Says he's got an N-word pass
What the hell's an N-word pass

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
The eyes of the squirrel are watching

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
Brad and Angeline
Expand their family
Who's gonna be the next octomom

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
Obama wave his pecker
At the infrastructure wreckers
Sayin' what you gonna do about that gun control

The eyes of the squirrel are watching
The eyes of the squirrel are watching

    General CommentThis song just seems to be about everything society pays attention to: Politics, news, celebrity gossip, sports, viral videos...
    I wonder if he's referring to anyone specifically with the "N-word pass", and it's easy to recognize the BP Spill in the song. "Anyone for battered for shrimp?" Is just hilarious! But unfortunately true about a lot of the sea life in the gulf .

    Jay's drumming in the song reminds me somewhat of Spegetti. I saw them live twice this summer and each time they played this song at the beginning I was getting ready for "Why do we do this?". But the drum part at the end is amazing, Jay Lane, welcome back to Primus!

    Song MeaningHint: It makes a lot more sense if you replace "the eyes of the squirrel" with a similar-sounding phrase, "the eyes of the world."

    General CommentI think he's calling society squirrels, we've all become squirrel-like, just watching all this shit happen on TV.
