The Lyrics

This song is from the viewpoint of the roach.
As I walk through the valley of the kitchen cabinet
I take a look at a crumb and realize there's not much left
'Cuz I've been runnin' and hidin' so long
That even the exterminator thinks his mind is gone
But I seen that guy crunch a roach that didn't deserve it
Me be fooled by a Roach Motel you know that's unheard of
You better watch where you flyin' and where you walkin'
Or you and your homies might get stuck and be caught
I really hate the sink, cause water makes me choke
In the disposal, I see myself drowning in Coke, fool
I'm the kinda roach the little maggots wanna be like
Runnin' around in the night
In the cabinets when there is a light

We've been spending most our lives living in the roach's paradise
We've been spending most our lives living in the roach's paradise
Keep spending most our lives living in the roach's paradise
Keep spending most our lives living in the roach's paradise

They got the extermination
They got me facin'
I can't live a normal life
I have to cower in the pipes
But they still might get me with a laser beam
The Discovery Channel showing them about what microwaves can do to me
In a microwave roaches explode into bits you cannot find
Got my antennae feelin' for food because I am blind
I'm a moped-out roach trap-tripper in Bangor
When Raid prices are down, it arouses my anger, fool
Death ain't nuthin' but a bug zapper away
I'm livin' life for a limited time, what can I say?
I'm 23 days old, now how will I live to see 24
The way things are goin', I best run out the door

Tell me why Raid is blind to see
That roaches, too, have feelings

We've been spending most our lives
Living in the roach's paradise

Devour the groceries, groceries to devour
The exterminator has been called, and will be here in an hour
Everybody's runnin', but half of them ain't lookin'
The new Roach Motel has begun overbookin'
But I don't fancy myself cookin'
They say I'm gonna die, but the exterminator can't reach me
All I can do is hope he doesn't use D-E-E-T
I guess he can
I guess he will
I guess I'm done
That's why I know my life is outta luck, fool

We've been spending most our lives
living in the roach's paradise

Tell me why Raid is blind to see
That roaches, too, have feelings

Tell me why Raid is blind to see
That roaches, too, have feelings
