It Sure Would Be Nice


Smerkles of tea water gagging me to death

I did not want a chocolate bar

Just a jar of piss in the frige'

I don't care what is wrong with me

I just know I'm far better off

Talking to a log

If I hurry to the warehouse

And if I make it on time

What other reason would there be

To start the day off right?

Swimming is hard

__when you don't know how

So lifting myself up from being sunken

__is impossible

I just want the world to shut up

'Cause I know they don't give a fuck

Hell is bound to show up

__and drown me in lunch

Forgot to put stamps on my budget

That's gonna come out of my grocery money now

If I land in a puddle of pee somewhere

Let me know how to survive

Such a mess to be left in

Or not

It's not like the whole world can like me

And I acknowledge that

I don't need to make anybody do that

But it sure would be nice to kill you all
