about

In our hubris mankind inflicts previously unimaginable dilemmas on a blameless rodent.

lyrics

Little brown mouse has D.N.A.
he's been hiding from the C.I.A.
and he's going to join the S.C.A. to hide.

He's dressing up like a plague rat
the enemy of the renaissance cat
where fleas and disease were happy to hitch a ride.

It's not fair the things they've done they made you self aware.
It's not fair the things they've done but then life isn't fair.

That's an awfully big role for a mouse
that hasn't even got one louse
but he's got a heart as big as a house, he'll try!

He can't hide forever there
there's agents at the renaissance fair
they're set up by the dragons lair to spy.

It's not fair the things they've done they made you self aware.
It's not fair the things they've done but then life isn't fair.

You don't know the reason why.

He tried to hide in the drag race scene
he tried to hide as an internet meme
but every where he tried he always met a team of spooks.

And always suffering from malaise
seconds to hours and hours to days
and maybe it's just all a set of flukes.

He read Schopenhauer and Kant
Buddha and Plato but each savant
didn't have anything to say that made him want to live!

it's not as if he wants to die
it's only he can't understand why
and what do the C.I.A. want him to give.

It's not fair the things they've done they made you self aware.
It's not fair the things they've done but then life isn't fair.

They took away everything that you were
a little brown thing all tail and fur
your heart to break and mind to stir
and you don't know the reason why.
You don't know the reason why.

It's not fair the things they've done they made you self aware.
It's not fair the things they've done but then life isn't fair.
