Lyrics by Jacob Koestler

lyrics

This little piggy was born
In 1984
With a silver spoon in his mouth
In line for the smorgasbord

He's got a lot of daddy issues
He lied given its his job
He's got a bill in hand and jumbled
And now he's in line for the ride out

Eat up, looking for his sword
Ring around her eye and his gaze
And he's now leading babies to his bedroom door
And its on the way to a better life and it goes

And now he has arrived
A court to call all his own
But before he knows the mountains of wild beer
Shuffled in by the mountain pound
And he's got a girl on his side
She's alright
And now he's got hair on his nose and it goes

Now he doesn't know anything
He should find a different home so innocent
It's his mess it's alright by him
No physical grabbing, no memories of his past

And that's the sound of moss on a rolling stone
And that's the sound of moss on a rolling stone
And that's the sound of moss on a rolling stone
And that's the sound of moss on a rolling
Yeah that's the sound of moss on a rolling stone
Yeah that's the sound of moss on a rolling stone
Yeah that's the sound of moss on a rolling stone
Rolling stone, rolling stone, rolling stone,
Stone

Now we're tethered to the basement floor
Strapped down with a needle tied to their arm and it goes

Straight to the floor
Don't bring us around
I don't think I know
It's my favorite place
Don't bring us down
I can feel my head
Don't bring us down
