"Pigs Are Smarter Than Dogs" lyrics - BO BURNHAM

"Pigs Are Smarter Than Dogs"

Pigs are smarter than dogs.
That's a fact.
That is "science," if you will.
Will you?

Pigs are smarter than dogs.
I love my dog.
I also love eating bacon.

So I can stop eating bacon
Or I can continue playing a quiet
And aggressive role in the genocide
Of a species whose intelligence sits
Safely in the middle of my "worthy of real love" spectrum.

Or I can continue eating bacon
And admit that my love for my dog is a sham,
A hollow and meaningless relationship born
Of my own insecurities and years of confirmation bias.

He likes me because I feed him.
That's it. Fuck him.
Bacon is delicious.
