lyrics

"Grow a thick skin
Develop armour like a fucking triceratops
So it doesn't get in
You've gotta learn to just shake, shake, shake it off
Your skin has gotta keep developing
Or else you're gonna fall apart
'Til you're a fucking rhinoceros
'Til you've forgotten who you are"

So now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I don't trust no one
(You got what you wanted)
So now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I feel nothing for no one

"You've gotta learn to be a hippopotamus
This is what it's like in the swamp
The hatred of man is bottomless
Gotta get wise and man up
You've gotta learn it's all the same
Only the strongest survive and that won't change
You've gotta learn to play the game
Play, play 'til you've forgotten your fucking name"


So now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I don't trust no one
(You got what you wanted)
So now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I feel nothing for no one

You got what you wanted
You got what you wanted

Yeah now I'm strong and my heart is a vacuum
Now I'll fucking kill a cunt if I have to
Ain't no natural predator I'm afraid of
Just a bombing or a couple of headshots
This concrete jungle turned me into a rhino
And now the lions have returned to their shadows
But there's no hiding from the asteroid
Or the epidemic, so what is really the point?

So now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I don't trust no one
(You got what you wanted)
So now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I feel nothing for no one
Now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I don't trust no one
(You got what you wanted)
So now I'm strong, but all my feelings are gone
(I'm a fucking rhinoceros)
Now I'm strong but I feel nothing for no one
