Fans of We The Spiders have been eagerly anticipating another bug/insect/creepy crawly related song. Well wait no longer.


Crawling up the walls,
resting on the ceiling.
Flitting out a lacewing,
try and catch a feeling.

Long, thin body.
Longer, thinner legs.
Stop by in the corner of the room
dropping off eggs.

We will crush you like a bug
but we're scared of your roar.
Hide all leads 'til you're in reach,
should've never let you in doors.

Show up in the garden,
nest down in the weeds.
Ambush from the pitfalls
masquerading as seeds.

Presiding to protect
all your smaller subjects.
A monarchy like butterfly wings
whose reign is suspect.

We would run you out of office
if you had any stake to claim.
You're unelected with no restraints,
we'll flush your body down the drain.

We will run you out of our house
in the bloodiest of coups.
Can't coexist with the insect of the exorcist,
what are we to do?
What are we to do?


from Narcissus, released March 20, 2017
