lyrics

The early aughts were the ready or nots
The assortment of soon to be sun spots
The early underscore of my third favorite part of you
I guess you’ve undone me, I guess it’s unfunny
To say what you’re doing but not what you do
I’d like you to love me but not from above me
From up in front where the light shines through

First you’re a homeowner then you’re a combover
Checking your license to confirm you’re an organ donor
Not so certain what’s behind the curtain but still pretty sure
And now that you’re stressing I’ll teach you a lesson
The way that you’re dressed I’d guess it’s the fall
But here’s what you do and I swear this is true
You eat around the pudding so the last bite has it all

And you’re trapped from the inside
I’m still in my disguise
And why is it that I’m always half naked in your eyes
Do we trip the breaker
I set a small alarm
Because you want to meet my maker
But you do not have the arms

You take way too long, you’re an 8 minute song
And I’m counting backward from 60 again
Now I’d like my money back for my copy
“How Not to Be Sleepy at 7am”
I guess this is it where you swish then you spit
And you pick at your teeth until the numbness wears off
And you wipe off your mouth then you go walk around
Because you’re already out but you’re not gonna tell your boss

Now let’s just say you’re an easy bake and you’re cooking a wedding cake
Whichever the tinnitus or the carpal tunnel takes
Determines what’s best to be fancily dressed
Or to sleep until you choose
But while you wait for the glue to dry here’s a quick clue to trie
Not all at once but still once and for all
Here’s what you do and I’ve even proven this true
You eat around the pudding and then you gallop until you fall

You’re paying off your dues
You don’t know what to choose
When you owe on all the backlogs but you still incur the new
Do we raise the stakes or try to slip through unharmed
Because you want to be the death of me
But you don’t have the weaponry
