I sit and I wait all goddamn day hey man I woke up this morning motherfuckers hitting snooze, I’m yawning don’t wanna go to work I just wanna call in and tell them I’m sick I know it ain’t true man, but I don’t give a shit today’s my day bitch, today’s my day I wanna do what I wanna do, ya know? I sit and I wait all day for something to change walked out into my neighbor hood I said whatcha slinging man, what is good? he said “ain’t got nothing for you motherfucker get the fuck out of my motherfucking corner” I said alright man, I didn’t wanna get in his shit I didn’t wanna get killed, that ain’t worth that shit I just wanted to get the fuck up out of there maybe get home and drop some acid I sit and I wait all day for something to change yeah, what did you wanna do? wanna go see that new movie man, ninja turtles 2 but that shit ain’t that good I heard it on rotten tomatoes from the critics but I didn’t want to talk to my cat the conversation ain’t that good as a matter of fact so I turned on some more cartoons lazied all day in my pajamas I sit and I wait all day for something to change

ain’t hard to see I don’t give a damn step back or you’ll soon meet a bad end go home or find yourself to be abandoned I’ve got no hopes, ain’t got no dreams I’m stranded lying naked in the street getting harder for me to try to believe I’m not a disease and in the end everything is coming true I can’t get away from what I’ve had to do believe in the force, you said it’s what’s inside of you go can’t you fucking see that I’m not your friend I don’t give a shit, I won’t lend you a hand but now I feel something inside has been awakened you know that you should just give up on me cause in the end you’re sure enough to see I cannot fucking escape from my sheer insanity when I found the key I locked myself in nowhere to go, no more pretend I am fighting a war that I know that I just cannot win go no I can’t be cured with your medicine but you fucking go and shove it right on in this pain is something that you can’t imagine they came in the night and they took my voice I died in the alley, they raped my corpse it sounds like an angel singing latin in reverse no one fucking came to my funeral cause they never even knew the real me at all and I don’t know why they still bring me flowers every fall go

I guess this is it I guess this is what my life is going to be now the eternal turd from the eternal butt I'd better start learning to see how I can cast the break I can stitch the cut who better to heal than me now? I can't tell you why but I tell you what I'm a winner and I'm takin a new vow I'll put the breaks down I'll take the trash out I'll check my self doubt I'll know my name it's a decent show if you can find a seat the band is pretty good some of their songs are weak but it's worth your time and the cover's cheap and you can go home early if you don't think it's sweet I’ve got a back stage pass the M&M's are green I can get you in if that's what you need I'll be here all night I'll be on my feet and you know where to find me if that's what you need

every time I think of you I wanna stick a hot knife through my chest I try to keep my cool but I'm a melted mess when I said I loved you it made you depressed every time I think of you I wanna tear every hair out of my head when I said I need you, you up and left why do I still want you clogging up my nest? every time I try to sleep I'm reminded of all the things I'll never be I coulda been a grandpa you coulda soaked my teeth we coulda learned to live with real humanity

went and burned another bridge so I guess I’ll have to find me another way everybody’s trying to tell me what I should and shouldn’t say everybody’s got a different opinion, all of them can just go away everybody’s just a fucking clone playing the same old game but I gotta get out what I put back in like I fucking lose what I fucking win everybody can do something somebody can’t who gives a shit? do your own thing everybody seems a little jealous when they see me doing my thing loose lipped and foul mouthed, I claim none as king I sure as shit don’t need your opinion about what tune it is that I should sing all your talk sounds so familiar, you’re just a fucking slave but I gotta get out what I put back in like I fucking lose what I fucking win everybody can do something somebody can’t who gives a shit? do your own thing

people say that I’m a creep but I don’t lose any sleep all y’all look like fucking sheep what the fuck you wanna say to me? if you wanna fuck with me well, get in line I sit and wait all goddamn day get on my knees and start to pray that I don’t care what other people say but now I do, so until that day if you wanna fuck with me well, get in line well I think we should settle this come over her and give me a kiss why you staring like a piece of shit? It’ll last longer if you take a pic if you wanna fuck with me well, get in line

no thrill like setting a broken bone I can feel the groove turned up but stuck on the things to come I can feel it coming hold back paint over a compass rose no means no each day I'm closer to being composed gee, it's really been something I hear it going clear I see how it's got to be I feel it becoming real but I can't touch you half as much as I want to I'm disconnecting the war machine I can change my tone still imperfecting the masterpiece we can watch the paint dry up stop in the name of the leaking hose or you'll soak your shoes no way to shake off the neuter cone so you'd better get used to it I hear it going clear I see how it's got to be I feel it becoming real but I can't touch you half as much as I want to

when I was lost I found you there you had your mona lisa smile and apathetic stare if love is criminal then this must be a crime now they got me locked up baby and now I’m serving time out in the night I fucking roam everybody’s got the same old fucking show I don’t know how I almost fucking died until they screamed out it’s alive damn right I’m alive you always like to paint it black you said I like to paint it grey as a matter of fact when you answered the telephone you said it’s the holy ghost I said there’s no saving me cause I’ve already sinned way to much out in the night I fucking roam everybody’s got the same old fucking show I don’t know how I almost fucking died until they screamed out it’s alive damn right I'm alive

sometimes my job has me filled with stress and my whole life feels like it’s one big mess but when I’ve got to relax and I need to chill well I know what exactly will fit the bill so light it up, take a puff oh shit I just can’t get enough and if you feel what I’m saying then let’s light up if you wanna know just how I roll (that’s how I roll) and how I light the fire inside my soul and if you wanna know exactly how it is that I’m getting by well, I’m getting high well yeah I guess some people, they like their smack and all my friends seem to be hooked on prozac yeah got my education, learned how to read and then I whipped out and I smoked some weed what the hell, holy shit I think I need another hit who gives a fuck, just legalize it if you wanna know just how I roll (that’s how I roll) and how I light the fire inside my soul and if you wanna know exactly what it is I’m doing when I drive well, I’m getting high

hi, my name is Colin and I'm having a pretty hard time the girl I loved said I wasn't enough now I'm kinda losing my mind I asked her why she left me and I'm still not sure that I know something about how I stressed her out and how she couldn't tell me so now I can't let go the best intentions met with resentment call into question a life time of supposed progress I'm not worth fussing over and she's never changing her mind the newspaper said what are you doing in bed I said we're mostly just wasting our time a poetic aberration in a new apolitical world I had my doubts but I sniffed her out and I was pretty sure she was my girl you can't be too sure the best intentions met with resentment call into question a life time of supposed progress anticipating ego inflating left me parading a life time of bodacious hubris
12.
my head's a dark room and everything I've ever done is up on the line a deep bowl, a clear view where nothin is impossible if I got the time but I can't get near you cause all that I could offer you is dead on the vine so 3 cheers and fuck you it's only getting better baby I'm still alive what, what is the point? why do I care? who could be? where, where is the place? when will I go? how can it be real? my heart's a dark tomb and everyone I've ever loved has swallowed the lie a deep hole to trap you so I can make it better, baby, don't you cry so what then if us two could get a place together and live there til we die? a boy's dream could come true but not if you're preparing for a tearful goodbye so, what was the point? did you ever care about me? why, why am I so hard to adore and easy to leave here?
13.
they wanna erase me I’m fighting forces I can’t see they hatch they’re plans in the night and now they’re coming after me what the fuck you laughing for? cause now they’re knocking down your door and now we’re in this shit together so what the fuck we fighting for? and I know that I am tearing down these walls and I see that everything is caving in and I know that I am never giving up whether not we are ever gonna win go I’ve got a secret to tell this world is just a living hell they drop you down the rabbit hole and now you’ll never live to tell it’s the american dream I guess it ain’t bad as it seems until the blood is running down the streets and all you hear are screams and I know that I am tearing down these walls and I see that everything is caving in and I know that I am never giving up whether not we are ever gonna win go they wanna draw the lines I’m busting my ass 9 to 5 they fuck me up with their distractions while they’re feeding me their lies they’re gonna raid your town they wanna raise it, burn it down but I wonder what those shits will do once they’ve lost their crown and I know that I am tearing down these walls and I see that everything is caving in and I know that I am never giving up whether not we are ever gonna win go
14.
nonbelievers start to believe when you come out of the woodwork and take back the streets and I don’t know what they’re doing or what they wanna be but they wanna be inside you and me it’s raped culture, greedy vultures they assault ya right there in the streets and I don’t know why they’re doing it or what they wanna be but they wanna be inside you and me should I feel shameful or really bad? wanna know what I feel? well I’m good and mad I wag my tail, I shake my fist I simply want to know what is the meaning of this and no one ever answers and no one dares respond and it’s hard for me to move along constant rejection, endless depression inverse deception, and it’s all in my head I’m a deviant, I’m off my rock and I just don’t belong and it’s hard for me to move along where am I going? where am I now? no way in knowing anything anyhow yeah life is awful, I don’t know why and one day you best believe that all of us are gonna die I wonder how I wonder but I never understand and it’s hard for me to give a damn it’s hard going, which way’s it flowing? no way in knowing and I just can’t comprehend no figuring it out, no knowing why, full of insightful dead ends and it’s hard for me to give a damn and what am I but a man? I don’t know why, but I don’t give a damn alright now, can you feel me? I’m in the air
