about

The party hit of the summer.

lyrics

Went to the Machine of Death to see what it predicts for me
A drowning, execution, or a self-fulfilling prophecy?
A turn of phrase ironic or a homophonic homograph?
If it said BEAR would animal or burden be my epitaph?

Eatin' up some honeycomb, it's good for the digestion
'Bout to drop the wrapper on the street, then stopped in introspection
Rationalizing littering takes reasoning elliptical
So I placed my sticky rubbish in the nearest trash receptacle

BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
EVERYBODY IN THE HOUSE GROWL, HOWL AND SHOUT

It seemed a bit implausible a monster from the woods
Could come upon me in the city, it's impossible he would
A good and honest pondering of my four-letter death in store
Repaired me from despair, you see the bear is just a metaphor

I'm walking through the desert on a hundred mile march
The sun is beating down and I'm getting kind of parched--
Wondering if I got some water, then remember that I did
So I lifted up the bottle and I opened up the lid

BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
EVERYBODY IN THE HOUSE GROWL, HOWL AND SHOUT

I do not fear a bear and I do not fear his claws
I do not even think that it's a thing to fear because
There is no way to craft it into something you'd prefer
Instead just try to live your life exactly as you were

I break into a bank trying to get that green
Avoiding the alarms trying not to be seen
Put an ear up on the safe while I'm fingering the knob
And when I heard a little click I thought "I nailed this job"

BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
BOOM! AND A BEAR COMES OUT
EVERYBODY IN THE HOUSE GROWL, HOWL AND SHOUT

BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM
BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM

Crack my wallet for a bill… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Try to sniff expired milk… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Open the oven, bake a pie… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Pour some ketchup for your fries… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Shuttle open the airlock… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Break a grandfather clock… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Policeman stop a speeding car… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
This girl's taking off her bra… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Get your shoes to play some soccer… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Grab a notebook from your locker… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Pitcher's throwing a no-hitter… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Go online to check your Twitter… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Suck inhaler for your asthma… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Hit a vein to get some plasma… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Climb a tree to pick some pears… AND A BEAR COMES OUT
Open up a can of bears… AND A BEAR COMES OUT

THEN HE ATE ME THEN I DIED
