Lyrics

Chopped off the tops of the trees
The living rooms are pleased with the results
Strange birds strange birds are we
The race with some missing nuts and bolts

The Humans, the Champions
The winners of the races with the rats
But the rats are winning
The weeds are winning

The more we see, the more we seem to abuse it
The next thing look it's falling apart
We over used it
In a perfect world, our greatest work
Would not be new mistakes
But we're practiced making perfect blunders
We can't escape

Winning the races with the rats
Weeds are covering my spats
Stuck tap dancing in one place
We weren't meant to go this pace
Have we forgot the ancient dance
We're tied together in a webbed romance
The world's forever changed
Thanks to us

We're the smarter of the breeds, aren't we
We have learned to sew the seeds
Without getting our hands dirty
Read our lips and mind our fists
We speak in contradiction
Go and push me aside after all who am I
To muddle with tradition

Winning the races with the rats
Weeds are covering my spats
Stuck tap dancing in one place
We weren't meant to go this pace
Have we forgot the ancient dance
We're tied together in a webbed romance
The world's forever changed
Thanks to us

Chopped off the tops of the trees
The living rooms are pleased with the results
Strange birds strange birds are we
