The Lyrics

dedicated to my dead fish, Herman
Where's my milk... I got no milk in my cereal... There we go...Yeah... Uh oh

Have you ever been hated, or discriminated against?
I have, I've been protested and demonstrated against
Grab a rag for that wicked grime, look at that grime
Sick as it looks, but it's only on the inside
All the noises, emotions, one deep as the Pacific Ocean
Temp is flaring and weather, just brush it off and keep going
Not taking nothing from no one, gave you peace as I'm breathing
Keep swimming fast in the morning, and swimming slow in the evening
Leaving with the taste of chlorine in my mouth
So you can come feed me, but you'll never figure me out
Look at me now, I bet you're sick of me now
Ain't you, Roger? I'm gonna make you look so ridiculous now

I'm sorry Herman, I never meant to flush you
I never meant to flush you down, but today, I'm cleaning out your fish tank

I got some fish food in the cabinet and I don't know if you know it
So before I threw you into your coffin and close it I'll disclose it,
I'll take you back to 2003, before I ever had a cute, little orange fishy
You were a baby, or maybe just a couple of days
Your previous owner must've had his mind in a bunch
'Cause I wonder, I wonder if he kissed you goodbye
And I think, on second thought I just really hoped they would die
I look at Herman, and I couldn't picture leaving his side
Even if I hated him, I show no tears and I try to enjoy it with him at least for Herman's sake
I maybe made some mistakes, but it's only fishy
Cause I'm forgetting to feed you daily
What I did was stupid, no doubt it was dumb
But the smartest shit I did was gave Herman a crumb
Cause I would've of killed him, shit I would've shot him and the bowl
It's my life, I'd like to welcome y'all to the MSG show

I'm sorry Herman, I never meant to flush you
I never meant to flush you down, but today, I'm cleaning out your fish tank

Now I would never dis my own Roger just to get recognition
Take a second to listen for who you think this record is dis'n
Put yourself in this position- just try to envision
Witnessing my Roger popping prescription pills into the tank, bitching
That guy's always looking through glass when I'm missing
Going through 500 other fishes, victims of Munchies Syndrome
My whole life I was made to believe I didn't have a future
Until I grew up, ate up and filled myself like your stomach, didn't I?
Wasn't it the reason you stopped feeding me, Rog?
So you could try to justify the way you treated me, Rog?
But guess what, your getting mature now and it's cold when I'm lonely
And Freddie died so quick cause he knew that you're phony
And Fred's so dead now, you should see him, he's beautiful
But I won't care, because I'm so beautiful *hahaha*
See what hurts me the most, is you wont admit you were dumb
Prick, do your song, keep telling yourself that you was a bud
But how dare you try to feed me when I wasn't hungry
You selfish prick, I hope you fucking jump off a curb for this shit!
Remember when Freddie died and you wished it was me?
Well guess what, I'm still here, and I'm swimming so freely

I'm sorry Herman, I never meant to flush you
I never meant to flush you down, but today, I'm cleaning out your fish tank
