Are we not smarter than animals?
Our adults still need a hand to hold
The panic room is broken on all sides
When our tech makes us industrial,
but our pets, the ones with hearts of gold,
it begs the question: how much of wrong is right?

Here's to you, you simple-minded fool
Give us one chance just to use you up and
hang you like the tool (that you are)

On and on, we sing the same song
We're not as strong, we'll last, but how long?
We just need something to help soften the blow
The past is gone, tomorrow's not promised
Today's a gift, but you tried to returned it
All we want is to stop feeling alone

You're a rat, a fink, you sold me out
You live in the dark shadow of doubt
Anything you say is void and null
You gave me up just like Iscariot
You are vile, depraved, nefarious
Remorseless in the windows in your skull



When we run into the wall again,
(that we built)
will I be able to find my friends?
(I need help)
I'll still be here to the bitter end
How is that for compromise?
I'll be clawing out my eyes

Are we not as smart as animals?
Their adults don't need a hand to hold
The panic room came down, we're stuck inside
