Slow Blink

This song was created for Game of Bands round 213 : "Imaginary Cult Themes"

Lyrics:

[Verse]
When the sun hits the window just right
There's a perfect spot of warm sunlight
On my favorite place on the windowsill
Don't bother me - I'm busy, can't you tell?

Pay your tribute by petting my fur
If you're lucky I might start to purr
Leave me offerings of red dots and mice
If I don't like them I'll keep you up all night

[Pre-Chorus]
This particular food just isn't good enough
My toys are under the couch, go buy me more stuff
The tabby down the street has worshipers aplenty
But I'm neglected - see? My dish is slightly empty

[Chorus]
I know you're doing your best, I know you're slow to think
I know you're grateful when I offer you a slow blink
Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

[Verse]
I have to ask you something, you do it every day
What's the deal with all the litter you steal anyway?
You wander aimlessly from room to room
While I sleep away the afternoon

[Pre-chorus]
I see you sneaking pictures of me for the internet
Has my Instagram cult reached a million fans yet?
While you're at it, go and pour me out some catnip
I hear Egyptians value cats - let's plan a road trip

[Chorus]
I know you're doing your best, I know you're slow to think
I know you're grateful when I offer you a slow blink
Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

[Bridge]
What are you hiding in your hand?
Put me down - this isn't what we planned
A towel wrapped around my dignity
You didn't even give me a chance to flee

The clippers come out and I flail
Claws on skin leave a bloody trail
And when it's over, I guess you won
Now I'm sulking in the morning sun

[Chorus]
I know you're doing your best, and I'm starting to think
I kind of love it when you return my slow blinks
Stop working so hard, it isn't worth it
Just stay at home, where you have a cat to worship

Hey take a picture again, I'll do a cute pose
I'll even let you dress me in some tiny cat clothes
How many likes did we get? How many followers?
I'm the most popular cat in the entire universe
[Exit]
