Horizontally Inclined – Everything Is Food

Somewhere there’s cooking
It’s already strong-smelling
Oh and it’s rising from the back of your yard
You never could get fit
Unless you threw your pit
Now you’re here with this health hazard
But you’re not skinny and the belt marks
All those places when you had a binge
You’ve never said yucks
The sounds of cries and the
Echoes of hunger will make you cringe

Chorus:
Yes everything is food
And everything tastes good
And everything looks nice to you
No matter what your mood
It has all the ripe smells
To your nose no stench repels
So what if it’s sticky goo
You still think it sells

You’re waiting for someone
To serve you your dinner
You’re waiting for someone
Who shares your palate
There’s always another course to devour
There’s always something more you wish you ate

Chorus

But you won’t eat light
You want one more bite
Is that too much to ask for more
You think that it’s right
To eat what’s in sight
Even though it fell on the floor
Out of the oven onto your big plate
Past the nations with malnutrition
You eat oh so often like it was your fate
You believe you’re the one who’s the chosen

Chorus

You said everything is food
You said everything tastes good
You said everything looks nice to you
No matter what your mood
It has all the ripe smells
To your nose no stench repels
So what if it’s sticky goo
You still think it sells
Sells
You still do
