lyrics

Then one day, he realized
Wanted to go and sweat my lard off
So much fat, no reason why
Tired of bein thick and soft
It should go to waste at the local Y
Watch the grease fall from my frame
With cars to drive and fries to fry
and seep into the maw of an unctuous drain

He got the permits and built the floor
post-exertion I would haste
signed some contracts then some more
to my favourite burger place
he'd save the earth, he'd feed the poor
how could I have known that fabulous taste
with the help of those who run indoors
was the savory product of my own waste.

they take it all and ship it off
to a place on Chemin du Golf
they render it and ship it back
with most of its chemicals intact
barrels on numbered shelves
they sell the people a part of themselves
to heat their homes and drive their cars
they don't give the particulars

Oh let me explain, you may think me a cannibal, I did too
before the nice man from the YMCA explained
why I was a fool, it's clean and cruelty free,
you can power a car with it too

the floors and walls he patented
Ile des Soeurs where I lay my head
built a franchise of his method
workin at the plant for my daily bread
for making oil out of man
which I slather with the product of my work
his life's work, his only plan
someday we will be able to fuel the world with the subcutaneous fat from rich countries and create a post-scarcity economy centered around creative pursuits.
