So I’ve got this gerbil
this hampster
this rat

and he’s running around
and he’s trying to get everything done
and he gets distracted
and he has to do something else

and runs somewhere else

it’s like that little fucker
is in one of those circular wheel cages
and he’s running in circles
and he’s getting nowhere

and this is my life, you see
and this is my brain, you see

and this is what I go through
I don’t know how to explain it

that fucking gerbil
that fucking hamster
that rat
is still going in circles
and I can’t stop it
but maybe I should just take my hand
like the judge holding the gavel
and slam that damn thing down
and stop this damn cage circle
and stop this damn cycle
before it goes on any longer
