lyrics

I was broke
so I got me a job
they gave me a bed
and made sure I was fed
well after the night
I woke up in delight
'cause I wasn't on my own anymore
my whole life was changing for sure

Mmmm...

While the others
would trip and drink
in the meanwhile
I would have a think
how to free my mind for real
how to get myself into a peer
good friends to hang out in dirty streets
good friends to watch porn and make some beats

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
drinking tea, singing let it be
The cockroaches and me!

They accepted me
straight away
without antenna
still they said I could stay
I never knew that cockroaches were so nice
in school we'd learnt that they were dirty parasites
and through the chemical trails in our feces
we'd communicate and share all of our secrets
and no one was better or worse
and if you wanted to go to church
they wouldn't bug you
no they wouldn't bug you

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
climbing trees, bruises on our knees
The cockroaches and me!

Though history tried to separate us
and others said that we were just posers
we formed
an anarchist collective
and laid out
our basic objectives:
to stop this pointless segregation,
more warm dark public spaces,
no compound-eye discrimination

Oh our friendship was so strong
we proved the world it was wrong
that indeed we could go hand in hand
and rule the world together
yeah and rule the world together

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
daytrips to the sea, finally set free
The cockroaches and me!

As the human beings
were destroying themselves
the cockroaches gave
a crash-courseon endurance and health
In the end everyone died except for us
oh what a beautiful world, no need to rush
oh what a beautiful world, no need to rush no more, oh no more!

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
drinking tea, singing let it be
The cockroaches and me!

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
climbing trees, bruises on our knees
The cockroaches and me!

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
daytrips to the sea, finally set free
The cockroaches and me!

The cockroaches and me, oh!
The cockroaches and me, hey hey!
The cockroaches and me, oh yeah!
The cockroaches and me, yeah check it out!
The cockroaches and me, hey hey!
The cocksuckers and me
