The Lyrics

I'm a little surprised that this OS was not written in satire up to this point. I guess we just needed to wait until circumstances, at the right time, had to occur. I know the irony of the OS so I decided to use some animal analogies to match tone.
(ooooo, ooooo, ooo x5)

(Verse 1)
Maggots crawling ‘round the dirt
Snowflakes with their feelings hurt
Icing up ‘cause their no fun
The beavers run out of lumber
The beavers run out of lumber
Change my daughter, to a son

(Chorus)
You can be the worst in charge
You can be the worst in charge
The worst in charge is good for them
You can be the worst in charge
You can be the worst in charge
The worst in charge is good for them

(Verse 2)
This one’s pessimistic
This one rides a dragon
This one raised its head from the sand
This one joins a stampede
Birds migrating to the west
Living in a caged up zoo

(Chorus)
You can be the worst in charge
You can be the worst in charge
The worst in charge is bad for us
You can be the worst in charge
You can be the worst in charge
The worst in charge is bad for us

(Instrumental Break)

(Bridge)
We really want to shut your mouth
We really want to shut your mouth
Nervous sheep travel in a maze
Wander around no grass to graze

(Chorus)
You can be the worst in charge
You can be the worst in charge
The worst in charge is bad for us
You can be the worst in charge
You can be the worst in charge
Guinea pigs all bite the dust
Guinea pigs all bite the dust
Guinea pigs all bite the dust

(Instrumental Break)
(ooooo, ooooo, ooo x5)
(Fade out)
Also. On the Inthe00's website, I added a forum discussion thread under the song lyrics section. The topic is how Radiohead's Kid A album is can be thematically tied to the events of 2020/2021. A twenty year album called it almost correctly. Waiting on some feedback on that.
