lyrics

I BIT THE HAND THAT FED MYSELF
(lyrics: David Greenberger, music: Chandler Travis)

I was barely looking
I am prone to wander
My mind on a trip all gone

I got out the bread and
I got out the toaster
That’s where everything went wrong

It went down like this:
Bit the hand that fed myself
It shocks me to tell:
Bit the hand that fed myself

I am so observant
When it comes to such things
But I missed this small detail

You can ask my friends and
You can ask my mom and
They’ll all say how much I care

It went down like this:
Bit the hand that fed myself
It shocks me to tell:
Bit the hand that fed myself

I bit the hand that was feeding myself
I overshot my own toast

I hold some regrets and
Some embarrassments and
This is surely one of those

I admit it here and
Do so one last time then
I bring this all to a close

It went down like this:
Bit the hand that fed myself
It shocks me to tell:
Bit the hand that fed myself
