Humanity has wiped out over 60% of mammals, birds, fish and reptiles since 1970. I Killed the Bees.


We’re ants on a rock
Spinning in space
I’ve got your head in a lock
And a smile on my face
I was reaching for anything
But everything’s just out of reach

You’re failing me now
By just staying still
You’re a duck made to sit
And I’m a tiger made to kill
They told us it was love
But I’m pretty sure it’s me tearing us apart

Close your eyes
Do as you please
Do as you please

Last night I dreamed
That I had a hive,
The the pollen was thick
The blossom alive
But I took too much
Because honey is sweet,
And you all know
That a girl’s gotta eat,

Well I’m tired and I’m sick
And I’m sick and I’m tired
Of working a job
where I wanna be fired
And I blame everyone
For not adoring me
But how could they try,
When I killed the bees?

Close your eyes
Do as you please
I made you cry
when I Killed the bees
Everything must die
So do as you please
I made you cry when I Killed the bees

I'll dress up for you
Cut and dye my hair
Dance to a melody
Lay myself bare
You'll listen to anything
With a 4/4 beat
Cos music is now
Just something to eat

I know that I'm bitter
Go tell me I'm wrong
There's no love or money
Left for these songs
But who wants to be liked
When you could be heard?
By killing the bees
We all killed the birds
If you kill the poet
Then you kill the words
