Rats

  • They don't eat, don't sleep
    They don't feed, they don't seethe
    Bare their gums when they moan and squeak
    Lick the dirt off a larger one's feet

    They don't push, don't crowd
    Congregate until they're much too loud
    Fuck to procreate till they are dead
    Drink the blood of their so-called best friend

    They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
    Don't pack themselves together and run as one
    Don't shit where they're not supposed to
    Don't take what's not theirs, they don't compare

    They don't scam, don't fight
    Don't oppress an equal's given rights
    Starve the poor so they can be well fed
    Line their holes with the dead ones' bread, no no

    They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
    Don't pack themselves together and run as one
    Don't shit where they're not supposed to
    Don't take what's not theirs, they don't compare

    They don't scurry when something bigger comes their way
    Don't pack themselves together and run as one
    Don't shit where they're not supposed to
    Don't take what's not theirs

    They don't compare, rats
    They don't compare, rats
    They don't compare

    Oh
    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    Ben, the two of us need look no more Writer/s: DAVID ABBRUZZESE, EDDIE VEDDER, JEFF AMENT, MIKE MCCREADY, STONE GOSSARD
