So, who's the kid, Jeven?
I wanna know
He seems real nice and tasty, for sure
So, who's the kid?
Tell me more
For now, he's a crumb that's fallen on my floor

He's not a kid
He looks nineteen
He's a human, sure, but somethings missing
Jaxryn found him, fell from the sky
He looks like he's a pretty nice guy

"Nice guy" you say, that's funny
All the humans I've met are ugly and scummy
They lie and cheat and do not care
Ever met a human who will put you first, Jeven? Come on!
There was a time where you could find real goodness in the world
But, then it's money, power, lust, hate, greed, come on!

So, where's he at, Jeven?
Just tell me
I think I've got a solution that I'll levy
I'll crawl right to him and rip off his head
Section it off for me, you and Jaxryn

Well, that's the thing: I don't know
Jaxyrn's got him and they're ready to go
But, even if I did, I'm not sure
Jaxryn said he's still got time on earth

Well, why do you think he's here?
See, that's funny
I'm sure that on earth he did something ugly and scummy
He made his choice, it's suffering
But, suppertime for me!
There was a time where you could find real goodness in the world
But, then it's money, power, lust, hate, greed, come on!

So, let's go, Jeven
I'm hungry
He seems ripe and ready
Let's go find this stupid monkey
I'll give you love and I'll give you money
If you find out where he's hiding or running

Well, okay, I guess so
The fact that he's here isn't a great look, no
I'll help you find him, but just promise me
Give him a chance before you eat him, please

"Give him a chance", that's funny
All the humans I've met are ugly and scummy
You'll see, you'll see
We'll ask him why
He fell from the sky
There was a time where you could find real goodness in the world
But, then it's...
Huh?
Money, power, lust, hate, greed, come on!
