Lyrics

rarely does chi
factor into
the type of people
he chooses to consume
he likes them big
and overgrown
more meat to gristle
more muscle he can hone

two hmongs from a deli
he srirachaed and jellied
and made a corset of them
for his belly

a haitian from florida
is now a rug in his foyer
a girl from delaware
is a high arch-backed chair

the paper boy's a paper weight
alberta's a lampshade
the fireman's an ashtray
the dj spins as fan blades

and when will it end
oh these horrible things
he asks himself nightly
the voices in his head sing

you're born what you're meant to be
if you're bad then be bad the best
if you're good stay away from me
we're a bad influence
we're the best

if you wanna steal go and steal what you want
if sniffing women's heels get's you off
i won't watch
and if you gotta dress
like a fox in distress
in the woods
well you can
and you could
and you should

well, here's a story
of a lovely lady
who had three daughters
who drove her fucking crazy
she hacked them up with an old machete
and threw a party with dead daughter confetti

i comb my hair (hair)
i brush my teeth (teeth)
i eat my peace like a good boy's supposed to

i wear a tie (tie)
boa constricted (snake)
i eat my pride like a lion's opposed to

you're born what you're meant to be
if you're bad then be bad the best
if you're good stay away from me
i'm a bad influence
i'm the best

you're born what you're meant to be
if you're bad then be bad the best
if you're good stay away from me
we're a bad influence
we're the best
