A Bet That Went South lyrics

A mushroom of melted molecules
Where language has been reduced
We can only use abbreviations
Skjlb, hjkgdfn, uji, ahfgsd, uwiaan

Here comes the pony, that one the Tony
There were flaws in the experiment
I'll tell you bout it
If you're interested to know

It was creepy the way they hovered above
End swooped down on the children
Their mouths agape exposing fangs of fire
Run children run

The three legged hyena cicadas migrated
To the small northern sea port village
Called Durschfuch

The horrible insects congregated
Above the Durschfuch elementary school
And would spend an indecent amount of time
Circling the playground

The citizens of the village
Were very alarmed by these new visitors
But since they were a God fearing community
And were not allowed to bring any harm
To any of God's creations

They had to pretend to ignore
The large grotesque arthropods
And continue on with their lives
As if there weren't any menacing predators
Swooping over their offspring
In time the hyena cicadas became hungry
And this in when the real terror ensued

As I stated earlier, the adults of the village
Thought the best course of action
Was to pretend the insects didn't exist
And continued to send the children out
To the playground for recess

Every day the same thing occurred
The children would stand apprehensively
At the threshold of the front gate
Until the teachers ordered them outside to play

Then the children would run terrified
Towards the shelter of the banyan trees
That formed an oval around the perimeter
Of the school yard

There they would spend the duration of recess
Huddling together under the trees
Shaking with fear for the first few weeks
The children managed each day to narrowly
Cheat death by hiding below the trees

Eventually the hyena cicadas
Became mad with hunger
And resolved to become more aggressive
In their attempt to eat the children

One of the more intelligent cicadas
Who happened to be the most famished of all of them
Had the idea that some of the flock
Should hide among the foliage of the banyan trees
While the others swooped over the children as usual

Then when all of the children
Were in their normal positions under the trees
The hyena cicadas hiding in the branches
Would descend upon them and kill them.

After that all of the flock
Could gather under the trees for a delicious feast
His plan worked perfectly
And the adults of the village watched helplessly
As the hyena cicadas ravenously devoured
Their beloved young ones

A mushroom of melted molecules
Where language has been reduced
