Guilty Cocker Spaniels - No One's First, and You're Next
Lyrics:

well i took off running at the greatest speed
i didn't bother looking to either side of me
well i didn't see, i just didn't see
what was really going on

the truth is stopped and the skyline rose
exchanging comfort for more fashionable clothes
i'd left the hills at this point in time
to run on treadmills in a perfect line

salad days add up to daily shit
sparkling imagination until the sparks just quit
and if this is fun, why am i so bored with it
well i will probably never know

guilty cocker spaniels eating table scraps
well we rolled over, how our master clapped
it felt so good, we wanted more of that
but when the program failed they defensively laughed
said we did things just how you asked
don't try taking us to task
you didn't bite face
nope, just a mask
so happy halloween

i drew a blank, we put it in a frame
wait, what, you're winning
you didn't say this was a game
well i guess i'll just have to play and play
until i'm out of cash

before i could spit it out
i guess the words had burnt my mouth
what can i say

best of all, i laid it down
so you could take it out of context
either way

we said all along we deserve every bit
and mostly we knew that the surprise would quit
but we got going and going just away with it
until everybody lost their mind

directly behind me and ahead of the time
but don't you worry, it'll fall right in line
yes everything's just fine, fine, fine
no one's getting blamed this time

blame me so blameless
can we find a way to blame our way out

well i postdated the eulogy
for every blameless body now, now

we are blamelessly teething on much more than we need
now, now now

blamelessly teething

we're likely to blame, 'cause everyone, everyone knew

[unintelligible]

[Isaac: that was pretty good]

[Unknown: that one seemed pretty good]
