This Day Could Not Go By Any Slower


Pissed off into the night

Even the sky was mad

Right back at me

I didn't understand a thing

Why is this happening to us adult writers?

What's gone wrong with this world?

There's so much wrong with the world today

It makes me feel like shit

The world of opening gestures

They just smack me in my mind

And I wanna find a needle

And say "hello" to good ol' times

And then shoot me up with something soothing

So I wouldn't feel a thing

But it wouldn't change a thing

Gotta wait 'til Monday

When I already thought yesterday was Sunday

But oh well

'Cause it wasn't

'Cause Sunday is today

And now I'm lost in madness

'Cause I care too much about this

But I'm not thee only one

Though I lost $40

Tryin' to fix things myself

Even though I was warned

By the voices in my head

As well as other selves

About rushing into Premium Membership

But I needed to message more

So maybe I'll keep it

I just don't like

This world that I am living in

But I'm not gonna complain

'Cause nobody likes a complainer

And too many people hate me already

For all the times I've complained before

And there really ain't a whore in this world

That can make me feel any better
