about

I CARE TOO (MUCH)

I care too much
To know how to show how I care
There’s feelings everywhere
I’ve just a blank white stare

I care the wrong way
The right thing on Twitter to say
To get things off my mind
My logic’s color blind

I care but who cares
I really do but truly who cares
I’m nowhere near #town
Look at me I have a new song now!

WHAT IS THIS PINNACLE I’M TRYING TO CLIMB

What is this pinnacle I’m trying to climb?
Why do I even try?
I don’t even know what I’m saying half the time
Why’s the world need to hear my side?
Why’s the world need to hear my side?
Why’s the world need to hear my side?

It really bothers me that Slager lied
Why did he feel the need?
What does it say about me and everyone we know?
Every day is just The Daily Show
Every day is just The Daily Show
Every day is just The Daily Show

ESQUIRE SUCKS, JON STEWART SUCKS, REBECCA SATELLITE IS COOL

Esquire, why do you preach to the choir?
Esquire, why make the tight rope even tighter?
And higher above the ground
I’m not looking when I’m looking down
I’m too afraid to really see #town

Jon Stewart, when did you become the pope?
Jon Stewart, you have the audience, but nope.
It’s ok if you’ve something (nothing?) to say
Just don’t say you’ve got nothing to say
I’m sure you can find a way to make our day!

Rebecca, I’m sorry that I was a troll
Rebecca, Facebook has devoured my soul
It’s ok if you’ve something to say
It’s ok I got nothing to say
Blah blah blah blah

TWO MANIFESTOS

(Instrumental. Kind of. It’s my iPhone speaking the Esquire article and the terrorist’s manifesto over each other. And song piano and organ to go along with it)

SICK OF SATIRE

I’m sick of satire
The joke is never at no one’s expense
Every premise sets a precedent or enforces an established one
I’m done with making small

I’m sick of laugh tracks
That back up any asshole with a mic
They leave you feeling right
Certainly justified that you’re fighting on the right side
With nowhere left to hide

SOFT AS IT IS

Why’s it always got to get louder
Why can’t it just stay soft as it is
I am a rolling on the floor with laughter
At just how funny the state of things is

Why’s it always got to get faster
Why can’t the pace just take its sweet time
I am a running but know not what after
Patience was never a virtue of mine

Why’s it always got to be something
Why can’t my plans run smooth for a while
I have a mission but one on this planet
Only to leave it wearing a smile

Why’s it always got to get darker
Why can’t the sun stay out night just as day
Why’s it always got to get louder
Why can’t it just stay soft as it is
