Slicin’ off the warning mattress tags,
Chuckin’ toasters void of electrical surge
Into teaming bathtub waters
I’m hitchin’ a ride to hell,
And my sin is danger

Jumpin’ off two foot walls,
Drivin’ one mile over the limit,
My bass blarin’ classical
Baby, meet the ultimate daredevil,
Ready for death

Lickin’ bird poo—
Hope I don’t get the flu
Eating cows I previously angered…

Stepin’ on the cracks,
Meetin’ them damned black cats,
Refusin’ to throw that spilt salt…

I am the definition
Of accident prone:

This "lame" comparison is how they are really seen.
