lyrics

When I wake up on the wrong side of the planet
And the creamer for my coffee has gone bad
And the people on the streets should really can it
'Cause I don't think they would like me when I'm mad

Down at the bottom, I have a secret trick
I have a thing to bring me up when I am low
It is simple, it's easy, and it's real quick
And it went extinct two hundred million years ago

Dimetrodon
They ate sharks and were 10 feet long
Dimetrodon
It's a thought that I can count on

When my darkest thoughts have got a hold on me
I close my eyes and I remember all their giant teeth
To shake off all the problems I have piled on
I picture the sail-backed giants of Dimetrodon

I am walking in a mall or in an airport
And I'm filling up with loneliness and fear
Like I'm not really a member of this species
And I don't think I am special, I'm just weird

When I am feeling this, one thing can make me smile
There are other folks who never quite fit in
They're kind of mammals but they look like reptiles
But I bet that difference never bothered them

Dimetrodon
They ate sharks and were 10 feet long
Dimetrodon
It's a thought that I can count on

When my darkest thoughts have got a hold on me
I close my eyes and I remember all their giant teeth
To shake off all the problems I have piled on
I picture the sail-backed giants of Dimetrodon

Be yourself
Count on your inner strength
Find your people
Hunt the weak

Dimetrodon
