Story of my life, story of my life
Well let's just say it's a fork and a knife
There's one thing on my mind, one thing all the time
I gotta fill my mouth
Got no favorite meal, got no favorite meal
I say every meal is clean if it fills me up for real
My belly's big and that's just the start
My appetite's my heart

And when I've had enough, I just throw up and laugh
This time, this time it's not a cow
Kind of personal, can't explain to you why
This time, this time it's not a cow
So Mr. PC are you ready to bow

Breakfast in bed, breakfast in bed
The bed is in the kitchen so it's easy to be fed
And when I'm fed, yes when I am fed
I go right back to bed
Food and sleep watch, food and sleep watch
Theese things should keep me from having too much
My belly is big and that's just the start
My appetite's my heart

Sometimes it feels that I could kill for desert

But this time, this time it's not a cow
It's kind of personal, can't explain to you why
This time, this time it's not a cow
So Mr. PC are you ready to bow

The story of my life
A big fork and the sharpest knife
I guess this solid, solid, solid, solid bridge leads me on
To the nearest fridge

And when I've had enough I just throw up and laugh
So this time, this time it's not a cow
It's kind of personal, can't explain to you why
This time, this time it's not a cow
So Mr. PC are you ready to bow
This time, this time it's not a cow, not a cow
No this time, this time, this time, this time it's not a cow
Not a pig, sheep, chicken, moose, duck, snake, horse or frog

    My Interpretation

    All of these comments are talking about it being about vegearianism but like, me and a few friends are pretty damn sure its about cannibalism. I mean it might be a stretch but, there are a few lines in it that seem kinda sketchy like "sometimes it feels that I could kill for desert". Yes, ik thats a common phrase and all but I mean he could be serious. An other is "guess this solid bridge leads me on to the nearest fridge" this line really could mean that he's just looking for the nearest fridge, but thats strange, If you're looking for a fridge what would you be doing on a bridge (or at least long enough to where it gets included in the song) maybe by fridge he means his next victim. The last line that seems sketchy is " a big fork and the sharpest knife". This line seems strange because he does clarify that its not beef he's eating, but its also none of the other meats people eat, but if he's vegetarian why would he need the 'sharpest' knife specifically. I mean I'm not vegetarian but i've eaten plenty of veggies in my days but i've almost never needed to use a knife, let alone the sharpest one. The only time I've ever really needed a knife for veggies was to cut it for prep but that usually doesn't include the eating bit that he's so obsessed about. So it's most likely meat since he uses a knife, But if its not meat and its not from a cow or the other animals he listed then what could it be? He even put in some obscure meats that most americans don't eat like horse or frog, but he didn't list human. This is why i think its about cannibalism.

    i'm wondering if this song also has a metaphorical meaning? the first line sort of sets it up...

    The story of my life, well let's just say it's a fork and a knife

    i dunno, just made me think of eating food as a metaphor for life?
