about

My house is next to a massive cemetary, which is basically just a big park with the odd stone block totally ruining it. In winter time it gets kinda chilly, so these tiny little mice wander inside and make little mouse nuggets everywhere, which invariably forces me to poison them, (or die of the plague). The ones that dont make it outside rot in the roof, and then in summertime flies use these dead fleshy sacks of fluff to hatch their young en-masse. its pretty much the circle of life, but i am still totally repulsed by it.

lyrics

Flies in the summer time, in winter its mice
the cemetary it is teaming with life,
to all those dead fools who made the fruit trees ripe, i say thanks: your allright.
flies in the summertime in winter its mice and theres a
little time in between, that feels just right
and all those four seasons mark the passing off time
ok. fine.
flies, flies flies in the summertime
and its
mice, mice, mice in the wintertime
and its, nice, nice so nice in the little time inbetween

mosquito pearce your skin in the summertime
and bird flu tries to get you in the wintertime
it sometime seems like being alive, yeah it aint that good for you
flies in the summertime, winter its mice and theres
money and media happening all of the time
and deep deep down, well what we know to be right its
drowned out by our need to survive,
flies, flies flies in the summertime
and its
mice, mice, mice in the wintertime
and its, nice, nice so nice in the little time inbetween

sunburn in the summertime, in winter we're white
theres a
constant stuggle between fire and ice
that leaves you sweating all day, and fuckin freezing at night

flies, flies flies in the summertime
and its
mice, mice, mice in the wintertime
and its, nice, nice so nice in the little time
flies, flies flies in the summertime
its so nice in the little time inbetween....
