Lyrics Print

Last night I was making
Dinner of taters and steak and
Thinkin bout eating a cake
Yum

Suddenly I was shaking
Like a major fever breaking
Most of my body aching
Some

Then I found myself awaking
Finally done with the quaking
A thirst I couldn't slake
None

Was I at my own wake
A bunch of folks handshakin
Right around day break and
All

Sounded like they were making
Comments about me overtaking
Duties of their forsaken
Gods

But my goal was jail breaking
I knew they were mistaken
Their heads were like fruitcakes
Gone

But my flight was overtaken
My vision made opaque and
I got a small headache
Bang

They burned me at the stake
Claiming I was just a fake and
Now they have forsaken
Me

Tied a rock to my left leg and
So I wouldn't reawake
They chucked me in great big
Pond

So I'm anchoring a salty lake
After a couple of hours bakin'
What had I really taken
On?

Now I get to partake in
The future in the making
Like a life long clambake
Done

I was just food in the making
Now I'm feeding the fishes bacon
Perfect when they're waking
Up

And the wheel goes around and around
These fish are never gonna drown
So I'm feeling a little down
Down town
