Amateur Hour 03:20
I wanna bite the hand that feeds me And maybe you will disagree But what's the deal with shows on Tuesday night With 7 other bands that just ain't right I'm really sorry your show fell through I'm sure you're a bunch of good bands good dudes Things go so long and some bands don't play There's got to be a better way 30 minute setup for a 40 minute set Summed up times five and I start to regret Changing my plans from taking a nap All this time that I won't get back Watching you break string after string And you're demanding more instruments like some kind of king? i wanna make you wish you'd never book me just handle my criticism to some degree Cmon! What is this amateur hour say no, you have the power And please don't make me headline Cuz that's when the crowd declines This show has gone too long Who wants to hear another boring song?
Buying apparel with the letters of my frat No matter how hard I try I can't turn the time back As My face starts to sag and My gut starts to expand Everywhere I look my life is so bland Its just Wake work sleep I stole that line. it's not that deep Nothing's exciting, not like those days Look at my hair and I start to see grays A stark reminder I'm heading toward oblivion Like how I don't get these Girls named vivian All these new sounds and none make sense I only think in the past tense The first words out of my mouth are remember the time... Reminiscing about those days in my prime I was king of it all, head of the castle And I Exchanged it all that for a tassel All my life has led up to this And all I think about is what I miss
7:45 this blogs going live So excited, I've been waiting all day setting up my blog and I'm on my way Wait for my connection to get full bars Get ready baby cuz we're gonna be stars 7:46 And I'm pulling out my dick Advertisements up and I'm ready to go Performance anxiety hope I can grow All the ads sayin they can help No idea cuz I've never been felt 7:47 and I'm ready for heaven Mind is racing; hands are fumbling Worried about the condom; when I should be tumbling Phone in hand; updates about to start Ready for the internet, to tear me apart 7:48 and we're out the gate it feels pretty great Things are getting close gotta try to hold it got a royal flush and I'm about to fold it 7:49 I'm running out of time (Cuz) I'm getting closer And closer And closer And closer I'm done
No one knows how, No one knows why One day the dead just started to rise Panic and fear start to set in This hell has started to begin Always knew; didn't need proof The only safe place is the roof No time to think grab what you can A couple knifes and a frying pan cries of agony from the floor below it's getting close and I really should go Too late. ones at the door Only see one but there could be more yeah there could be scores aim for the head. throw the knife Its the second time he lost his life Hear a scream down the hall Leave'em for dead No time to stall No time to waste run to the stairs It echoes and echoes the sound of despair In the stairs think I'm in the clear Maybe they've only made it up to here I hear a crash a couple floors down I'm getting paranoid one could be around I climb the steps; I grow with fear cuz I hear their footsteps and they're getting near I'm exhausted but not much more I think I see the access door At the roof. here at last Lock the door and do it fast Look around the sky's on fire Looks like my chances got dire No survivors. no point to yell The entire city's gone to hell Up too high and no where to run Looks like this world is done The door is starting to break Maybe coming up here was a big mistake The door busts open and three run out Can I survive it I highly doubt Kill myself or become their kin Id rather fall with my back to the wind
Sick Day 03:38
Ugggghh Not again Can't get up Half awake Brains telling me to go go go Body replying no no no The horrors of consciousness Can't even think how I'm going to dress I can't do it Not today Gotta get up. put on pants I Fall back asleep I didn't have a chance i'm not sick i'm not hungover, just tired Pick up the phone Make up a voice which disease will be my choice It doesn't matter Aids or the flu I think I'll pick the latter Got nothing planned That's not important I just want to lie here dormant
