Lyrics

On Human Feet


Day breaks upon me
In a ten-by-twenty box
I fend the world off
With a pair of dead bolt locks

Walk past the TV
A plasma void of black
Check out the mirror
And the scrawny biped staring back

Why walk on human feet
Nowhere to run
Why walk on human feet
What can be done
On human feet

Look at this canine tooth
A small pathetic pill
Can’t chew through the Ibex hide
Or make the vital kill

It’s time to take that leap
And cast off this puny form
Tear through the sinew
Where the zebra blood runs fast and warm

Why walk on human feet
Nowhere to run
Why walk on human feet
No kind of fun
On human feet

Why walk on human feet
Nowhere to run
Why walk on human feet
Under the gun...

Be but a memory
To the ones I leave behind
I’m through with memories
With words of any kind

I’ll dine al fresco
In the sub-Saharan air
Where meat is plentiful
And men are rare

Why walk on human feet
Nowhere to run
Why walk on human feet
What can be done
On human feet

Why walk on human feet
Nowhere to run
Why walk on human feet
My life is done
On human feet
