In my first apartment the pipes were very old the faucet always leaking, water always cold when anyone came over they said fix the problem now call the plumber now or you'll regret it all somehow but i continued to ignore all their supposed expertise until my furniture was floating in a pond up to my knees an apartment like a kiddy-pool just isn't all that fun and i knew i'd gotten in this mess because i am the one who's always saying it's alright it's no big deal the world is dew and daisies and i have no doubt in my first class talent to ignore because i always seem to make a molehill out of a mountain last spring we took a road trip through new mexico and suddenly discovered that our fuel was running low my passengers looked nervous but i told them we had time we're just miles out of town and we will all get there just fine they told me to pull over they said don't take the chance but i just kept on driving without another glance and when the engine sputtered eyes were rolled and sighs were sighed after five hours hiking through the desert with a gas can i regretted saying it's alright it's no big deal the world is dew and daisies and i have no doubt in my first class talent to ignore because i always seem to make a molehill out of a mountain and we all are ostriches sometimes such a hassle to change your plans and we all try so hard to believe that you can't die with your head in the sand alright it's no big deal, the world is dew and daisies and candies and sunshine and it's alright it's no big deal the world is only good rhymes and good dreams and good times and i will not believe you when you say that it can't always be this way so you really cannot blame me for all my present sins it's just the way i function the way i've always been you tell me we're on eggshells you say the ice is getting thin you tell me we're in trouble but i just can't begin to fathom all the loneliness to fathom all the pain our love was once so strong and it'll always stay the same so when you look me in the eye and i see nothing there i paste a picture in my mind that proves to me we care about each other, and it's no big deal the world is dew and daisies and i have no doubt that when you get up and walk out that door i'll find a way to make a molehill out of a mountain.

Two faggots kissing in public pissing swine never mind wait in line fucking my erection from all the words you could possibly say, you choose to spew hate i've got it worse than admitting when i was wrong no time to think around this masochist town afraid to admit when my heart is dim you're the brightest little nail in my coffin you ignorant shit i'm gonna punch you in the face you are a coward and you actively erase feed the aggression remain a fool while i'm busy unlearning the shit they taught in school Two faggots kissing in public pissing swine wait in line fucking my erection every two weeks for the rest of my life you choose to spew hate

We Should 04:11
We could find some cash in the street We could buy a lottery ticket We could maybe double our money If you think you want to risk it We could buy a car with our winnings We could drive it out to the sea We could pay off our student loans We could put ourselves at ease We could, we could, we could, but should we? We could, we could, we could, but should we? We could, we could, we could, but should we? I think we should We could invest in new tech I got some ideas in my head We could find an inventor To make machines to talk to the dead We could make peace with our parents We could tell them how we feel We could find out ancient secrets To inflict wounds that never heal We could harness diabolical powers We could make an unholy pact We could show Karl Marx his nightmare We could keep his dream intact We could overrun the feds With ghosts and ghouls and wailing banshees We could save our friends from the hunger Of ten billion zombies Or we could go out to dinner I’ll treat you to a dollar meal And find another way to open Hell’s demonic seal We could, we could, we could, but should we? We could, we could, we could, but should we? We could, we could, we could, but should we? I think we should

Well I dream of being a guillotine With a slanted smile and an edge so clean You could feed me all your kings and queens and I'll spit out bloody crowns And your brain's like a radar range Flash frying in cell phone waves from nine to five the rules don't change: Keep swimming Or you'll drown Cuz we're Generation Shark If you don't feed hungry creatures You're gonna get a few red beaches I would snap your bones for the marrow inside Cuz your billion dollar heist wasn’t technically a crime And if you’re skimming your millions from our overtime So How much blood could you need? And they think we can only be Tiny fish in an endless sea Well they’re bigger than you and they’re bigger than me But we’ll stand like rows of teeth Generation Shark If you don't feed hungry creatures You're gonna get a few red beaches Generation Shark When the big one finally comes We'll make some Wall Street chums Cuz who's got time for regicide In the gig economy, when they dip Their toes in off their yacht we'll take our shot Cause you and me are Generation Shark When the big one finally comes We'll make some Wall Street chums They’re the few and we’re the many Let’s start a feeding frenzy

Little friendly robot mopping up my floor, all you eat is dirt, what could you want more? Little friendly robot, cleaning up my house, thank you robot. Little friendly robot assembling a car, no more jobs for unions a scab is what you are. Little friendly robot, building me a car, what about the worker robot? Little friendly robot, flying out in space, you don't have to breathe, you don't have a face. Little friendly robot, out among the stars, can you see me robot? Little friendly robot, beating in my chest, keeping me alive, doing all your best. Little friendly robot, teaching me to love, what do you feel robot? Little friendly robot, sitting on my desk, you make flyest beats, I like you the best. Little friendly robot, ble-ep bleep bloop, thank you robot. (Giant scary human, please don't be a jerk, don't throw me away, I'll do all your work - you might think I'm friendly, I'm just biding time, you're gonna get yours human.)
