When you feel like you're in the wrong country, at the wrong time, with the wrong people.
Yet, you depend on other people. We all do. But you feel that you can't repay them the favour, as you're not sure you have the right CURRENCY.
Then, my friend, you feel like a parasite.

The music was beautified by Bittedeluxe's capable hands.


Everyone here's got a purpose
But I'm making rhymes with no reason
All my fish went tits up in the kitchen sink
Marinating with the spoons and the cups
I suppose I might as well just pull the plug
A whole new chapter must be begun

Everyone flies the same flag
But I'm flying nothing at all instead
My plane crashed down in this country
I just came here for a little bit of sun
For a love that turned to shit
As soon as my foreign feet hit this ground

I'm a parasite
And I wonder what I'm doing here
A parasite
Rotting your country from the inside out
Oooo, what a tasty host
You're the host with the most

Everyone here's on the same page
Seems that I did not get the memo
There's been mumbling and pointing of fingers
I just came here for a little bit of fun
which did not go down well with everyone

I'm a parasite...

And now he’s coming for you ... more
