Never did I expect to see someone like you knocking on my door. Much less sitting there and asking me what you’re looking for. And then you said to me “oh I know I’ve heard that you are good.” But trust me babe I’m nowhere near as good, as good as you. But oh I think this will do. Oh it’s good for you. Making money, I’m making friends, I’m making this music to get loud. Helping out I’m spreading love. I’m changing the faces all around. When that fire is in the air it’s smiles that I can only see. Maybe it’s killing me but right now I’m living all about me. But oh I think this will do. Oh it’s good for you. So many faces that I see. So many places I’ve felt so free. Your face alone it lets me know the world may see eventually & positively.

I fell in love with a modern girl and it’s shame that all she told me was a dirty word but I knew all along. I wish that I was more than just an angry boy and I swear that I have always used the magic word but I heard I was wrong. I fell in love with a modern girl and all those books they like to read they all have dirty words that I know. Take some advice, don’t stress, life is short (it’s time well spent) but my friend we’ve gotta go home. I stole two kisses from a modern girl and it’s a shame that I was done before I’d earned a third but I knew I wasn’t strong. I wish that I could see what we were really worth and if only I had listened to a single word oh no I was too far gone. My dreams have changed so much that I don’t feel the same, I laugh sometimes I don’t remember your name. I laugh sometimes. Take some advice, don’t stress, life is short (it’s time well spent) but my friend we’ve gotta go home.

Eat your vegetables. That’s real advice. Real advice. Take your time with it. No rush. No rush. I’ll take nonsense over cliché any day because love songs and platitudes don’t change my attitude. If it means that much to you I’ll sit and ponder what you say but if you’re putting on a show please don’t forget the ones who paid. I’d rather you offend me. I’d rather you offend me because love songs and platitudes don’t change my attitude. Can you hear the people laughing? Drifting close to ecstasy? Why would I silence brighter music, a joke has much more life than me. I have an agenda. I have an agenda. Love songs and platitudes don’t change my attitude. Say something please or give me energy. The minstrels come to discompose the town. Love songs & platitudes don’t change my attitude.

I’m starting to doubt evolution because I’m still here. But I guess it doesn’t matter because if I’m loud I know I’ll have fun. These things in our hands are good for something I guess. Not sure what it is yet but soon it will all make some sense. All I gotta do – make some money. People they ask me sometimes “how do I survive?” I say I sold my body, sold my soul; I stay alive. They say your music sounds alright maybe I’ll buy a CD. But if I were you, I’d just download it for free. All I gotta do – make some money.

Hey. Go to work. Go to bed. Hey. Go to work. Go to bed. Plug it in and tune it out. Feels so good, stop, forget about that thing over there. So many things. We’re getting fingerprints everywhere. You are my friend, I can’t contend; these walls have taken care of me. I’ve not slept in the snow, I’ve got somewhere to be. This soul’s not old it’s somewhat cold - a boring sack of empty deeds. The people need to hear nothing from their anonymous son. Hey. Eat a bird. Grab a leg. Hey. Eat a bird. Grab a leg. Chew it up and put it down. Tastes so good, stop, forget about the people over there. So many people. I’m just gonna keep eating this chicken.

Nobody shows me what I want to see. I think it’s funny that you sat next to me. Nobody tells me what I want to hear. I’ll just sit down and finish my beer. Go. If I speed I’ll make it home in time. Go. Let’s get drunk to see my kids and wife. Time to fall into my lazy boy. Do it again just like I did before. Fluorescent lights and primetime TV. The van’s not as fast as I want to go. Fuck soccer practice I’ll sell it for blow.

One day we’ll hit an asteroid and all of the corn will be popped. One day we’ll hit an asteroid and all of the doors will unlock.
