lyrics

I got a simple plan
write it on the wall
take it in little strides
take in my adderall
she visits every week
chatting at the register
I can barely stand
I want her on the wall
I want a different face
it goes a long way
to have a famous sounding name
call me John Blaine
what is it meant for
think of how you’re blessed
selling cheese & meats
to a lady in a sundress
is this fine?
is this an adequate state of life?
appreciate the little things
you never know what the next dawn brings
insurmountable beautification
my friends the fresh faces of gentrification
parking lot to retrace hazy thoughts
does my work advance the correct cause
or simply cause my car to crash into the medium
cause I can’t drive didn’t sleep too much last night
enjoy the sight of satisfied customers
search for saps, extract extra dollars
every scrap of change scraped off the table
cash big checks at the coinstar later
lamb heart sliced up animalistic
artery pops now theres blood on the granite
edible weeds washed clean in the colander
she simmers the stew, must sedate my fervor
antioxidant surge into my fingertips
shaking on the table she grins and spits
says hard labor’s the only way to live
gotta get off the gird
and I’ll follow
when I'm drained
I can’t think straight
when I’m drained
I can’t think straight
there’s no water in my brain
there’s no water in my brain
when I’m drained
I can’t think straight
