lyrics

Not so many years ago
People spun in circles
Slowly turning as if inside antique music boxes
Or in space
Spiders hanging from the walls
Watched as all the stupid humans called
Each other on their telephones to brag about their
This-n-thats

But several million years before
You and I were dinosaurs
Earthquake makers on some fire belching blemish
Hung in space
Glorious beasts with lofty dreams of
Spilling blood and infinite supremacy
Erased with white correction tape by chimps
In ties-n-hats

The dinosaur was god
Until the big cosmic surprise
That sent firestorms from heaven
And from hell, free enterprise

But the dinosaur came back, yeah
The dinosaur came back, yeah
The dinosaur came back to claim his prize.

Now there's dinosaurs in fleets
Above your homes and in your streets
Stalking children in the park,
Taking bread from the elderly

And a dinosaur won't quit, no
A dinosaur won't quit, no
A dinosaur won't quit until he flies away from here for good.

So wear your hats and spill your blood
And stomp around all day
Keep your loveless legislation
Advertise your wicked ways

But make sure you're fiscally fit
Because again the fuse is lit
And when you go, a dinosaur will rise out yer ashes.
