lyrics

Flying over mountains
singing a song
that your ancestors taught you
long before you were born to this world
in which people will call to you
only to shoot you right down to the ground
where a hound will retrieve you
and bring you to his master
and the master will cheer
at this wondrous desaster
and then thing you know
you're server on a table
and you are unable
to cry for your mother

C'est la vie
Des cafards
when you're shot in your back yard
and everything you do is a shame
'cause every life you've ever lived ends the same

next thing you know
you wake in a bright room
you cry for your mother
cause you know you face doom
and next thing you know
you're four years old
your life revolves around
doing what you're told
and next thing you know
you've reached age 18
you've given up meat
because you think its mean
and next thing you know
you're on your death bed
you cry for your mother
who lives in your head

C'est la vie
Des cafards
when you're shot in your back yard
and everything you do is a shame
'cause every life you live ends the same

and your mother said it will all be okay.
well let's just hope it turns out that way
and your mother said it would all be just fine
well let's just hope she's not wrong this time.
