lyrics

I’m snorting lightning off your high school bleachers
I’m your typical straight C leacher
maybe you’ll find me at your local K-mart
down in the K-hole counting sheepish remarks
I’ve memorized the alphabet backwards
I start with Z and make them run after
and no one ever found me after graduation
just some pigment for your imagination

drink up or drink down, it still gets done
every time the sun sets think the moon has won
so speak up or speak down, just wag your tongue
every way is forward, isn’t that enough?

I’m the pitcher of smoke who put the sleep to the bees
now daisies are dead and you want to blame me
what was I to do but be more idle than my idols?
they didn’t teach a wrecking ball to build the Eiffel
now I’m catching flak for my back hand lashes
“yeah you’re so good at marketing yourself”
I took a drag from a race and came out speeding
a blind grip up on the voice that I'm leading

so drink up or drink down it still gets done
every time the sun sets think the moon has won
speak up or speak down just wag your tongue
every way is forward, isn’t that enough?
