The Fucked Up World

-

I'm fucking the world

The damned world

Blowin' all these motha'fuckas' brains out

Sky high, into an obliviation masquerade

This massacre will be sweet, indeed

I know the drama

__is over spilt milk not gettin' cleaned up

But I don't give a fuck for liquid lunch

This stupid world

__is too busy eatin' spinach

____to take a minute to help me kill you

If you know what I mean

My lofty brain

__is bruised up and battered

____by all the thoughts

______of killing ev'ry one

One by one

Having a grand ol' time

But it musn't be done

Who am I to be killing ev'ry one?

I look thru the world thru my window

And wonder how ev'rybody else can gain employment

While I get stuck having my resume passed up

I don't know what kind of America this has become

When only the sane get to find work

And I have to listen to them complain

__about me not having a job

It's not like my fathers' social security

__is coming out of their pay checks

Or is part of it?

Is that what it's so high?

Or is that just because he died?

If I didn't need the world to put bacon in the stores

I would have no reason to not kill them all

But I have to bring home the bacon

So the world needs to live

It's just so unfair

__that I have to choose between bacon

____and total annihilation

______of everybody around me

Now I'm angry at God

__for putting me in this situation

I wish I could sit up on a cloud

__eating Hawaiian potato chips

____condemning everybody

But without this added anger

I wouldn't be able to feel all warm and tingly inside

Which I know is ironic

But I'm not complaining
