The Lyrics

I used a tool with blades
In the bright daylight without shades
I got distracted by solar glare
So I soaked and ruined a chair

I used some vulgar words
And I think that some small children heard
Wished I could apologize
But I couldn't make sense, just muffled cries

One mother she yelled at me
Then her rage became pity
By then I realized that the cash I'd saved
Was of no use at all, I wished I'd behaved

My fear of Lucifer seems unfounded
Roaming aimlessly quite astounded
That I still can think thoughts and see
Why's this existence of mine coffin-free?
Now I seem to be banned from trains
Clearly ghosts have it better
Better contain my smell
Or I'll wish I lived in Hell

My face has festered so flies galore
Live by my skin, each day brings more
Frightened whispers and much louder screams
Post-life is coming apart at the seams

Science luminaries fight
Since they're desperate to claim the right
To dissect me for their own research
I hope they can't agree as I lurch

I paid a visit to mom and papa
When mom saw me she gasped and dropped - a
Lifeless body on shiny floor
My pissed off father lunged with quite a roar
Then a reflex I have kicked in
I brought my teeth down upon his skin
Now I am just like dad
I never guessed that would be bad

I would be doomed now but Congress made a
Law declaring my kind endangered
It's illegal to cause us harm
Since I'm not human I can gnaw your arm
But arm feasting feels rather lame
I must have eaten a dozen brains
It's been a rotten week
If you can't empathize don't speak
