    i've already posted a picture of the things
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    what about with a mouse
    in a house
    or with a fox
    in a box?

    would you, could you, in the dark?

    could you, would you, with a goat
    would you, could you, on a boat?
    So follow me into the desert

    Feel free to join us when you've achieved that level of intelligence
