Pay to Rock:

Volunteer em - Bonded in the rhythm.
With the system way up.
A way to punch it in em - Common bonded in the rhythm. What did you say?
Image and the gall  - Bonded in the rhythm
With assault - sold to - Common bonded in the rhythm.
a participator. - What did you say?

Seven, years, bottom.
and now you gotta, a better, bottom.
Eat some Ramen, and you get up, get out, mess around.
Because the world’s  not bad if you move about.
I got a, made up, band not punk and rock.
I got a teeny weeny flat with a pull-out bed,
and there’s a hole in the window where my shoe shouldn’t land,
and a pick up lit a fire in the parking lot.

In the lonely body sits a little gnome.
Tears the wound back open if you dare to sew it closed.
Hey, don’t want to thank that guy.
A dead end gnome.
Hey, but glorious I feel better.

They told you, hey you got it don’t look back and eat your ramen love your flat
and artists can’t be happy and you’ll never love your music but then...  gasp
for how long man it’s been?.. gasp..  I should pay to rock..  You say one day I might even like a song.
