The Lyrics

Dude eats rocks. How many do you recognise?

I've been snacking on rocks
Metamorphic dish
More slate on my plate, please
Slate, please

Sylvinite (lovely snack for lunch)
Malechite (save some for later)
Dolomite (have some, taste it)
Oh, phosphorite (the best thing to munch)


Might think me mad to eat
Something hard as flint
I don't care, more shale, please
Shale, please

Laterite (love to hear the crunch)
Geyserite (such a tough flavour)
Mylonite (try some, taste it)
Oh, tectonite (it packs quite a punch)

Granulite (breakfast, tea and lunch)
Migmatite (there's lots to savour)
Litchfieldite (hang on, pain hit)
Oh, anthracite (that's my tooth that crunched)


Pullin' out the coupe at the lot, told 'em fuck 12, fuck SWAT, bustin' all the bells out the box, I just hit a lick with the box. had to put the stick in the box, mmh

Oh yeah, laterite and litchfieldite. A real riot. The boring people who study this boring stuff would still say your song is incredibly boring.
