Alt. Lyrics:

With your teeth to your lips
And your head to the ground
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
Feel what its like to fall down"

With your teeth to your lips
And your head to the ground
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
Feel what its like to fall down"

[?]
[?] said we're all in trouble now
[?]

We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out

With your teeth to your lips
And your head to the ground
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
Feel what its like to fall down"

With your teeth to your lips
And your head to the ground
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
Feel what its like to fall down"

[?]
[?] said we're all in trouble now
[?]

We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out

With your teeth to your lips
And your head to the ground
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
Feel what its like to fall down"

[?]
[?] said we're in trouble now
[?]

We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
We all try harder as the days run out
With your teeth to your lips
We all try harder as the days run out
And your head to the ground
We all try harder as the days run out
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
We all try harder as the days run out
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
We all try harder as the days run out
Feel what its like to fall down"
We all try harder as the days run out
With your teeth to your lips
We all try harder as the days run out
And your head to the ground
We all try harder as the days run out
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
We all try harder as the days run out
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
We all try harder as the days run out
Feel what its like to fall down"
We all try harder as the days run out

With your teeth to your lips
And your head to the ground
You hear the fish and they're making this sound
Saying "We just wanna go walking around and
Feel what its like to fall down"

Normal Lyrics:

daniel read the paragraph
he read until the words ran out
it said we're all in trouble now

poison in the juice carafe
we drank until our thirst ran out
oh no we're in some trouble now

everyone wants to be a perpetual motion machine
we all try harder as the days run out
we all try harder as the days run out
we all try harder as the days run out

with your teeth to your lips
and your hair to the ground
well you hear the fish and they're making this sound
saying we just want to go on walking around
and feel what it's like to fall down

patrick ran the race
yeah he ran until the tire ran out
oh no i'm in some trouble now

tried to kick it over
i tried until the juice ran out
oh no we want more trouble now

with your teeth to your lips
and your hair to the ground
well you hear the fish and they're making this sound
saying we just want to go on walking around
and feel what it's like to fall down

i saw

[incoherent mumbling]

everyone wants to be a perpetual motion machine
we all try harder as the days run out
we all try harder as the days run out
we all try harder as the days run out
