Sex And Death - Theme Song
Sharks by _The Babysitters_

See the dark triangles cutting through the waves,
Sending sailors' thoughts to damp and fishy graves.
How these things could appeal
You might not understand,
But anything that eats surfers
Can't be all bad.
And sharks have been around for longer than us
Sharks will be around for longer than us…
Some creatures live by stealing eggs from others' nests,
Some peck at whitened bones for scraps of rotting flesh.
Some live by sucking blood
And some by eating quiche
But sharks don't need an evolutionary niche,
Because sharks have been around for longer than us
Sharks will be around for longer than us…
Life is too complicated on dry land
Sharks live a simple life that everyone can understand
We market death to those who can't afford to eat,
Then congratulate ourselves upon the progress we've achieved.
Vilify the sharks as ruthless killers of the sea
As if they were the only cause of human misery,
But sharks have been around for longer than us
Sharks will be around for longer than us…
