lyrics

VERSE 1

I'm in the zone
The eaters all around me disappear
Just me, the plate, the food is all that's here
And the time to begin eating draws so near.
Nothing to fear

Then why
Does my stomach tie in knots before I start
And yet the gut is just a small part of this art
If I'm gonna win I've got to play this smart
Eat from the heart

The whistle blows
I grab some food and dunk it in my drink
I've got a strategy but there's no time to think
Just the rhythm of my hands and mouth in sync
Pushed to the brink

CHORUS

I keep on eating although I'm full
I keep on eating although each bite tastes like dirt
I keep on eating although I'm sick
I keep on eating ...
Although it hurts

VERSE 2

I jump
To try to get the food to go down fast
But with each bite I fear that it's my last
I know I'll soon be haunted by this vast
Frenzied repast

I sweat
The drops drip in my eyes and smell like meat
But it's not about enjoying what I eat
It’s about pushing myself into the elite
I must compete

I strive
So I can know that I'm the best at what I do
While surrounded by my peers who do this too
And leave my mark even though others disapprove
It’s what gives me strength to gnash and bite and chew
All the way through

CHORUS x2
