Tick tick tick tick tick tick

This is what I’m listening to on my iPod while I wait for the survey guy to come to my place of employment and validate the work I’ve done for the last 8 months.

Oh, the sun drenched French girls won’t relate to
A frozen glare from a northern state
Dreamin’ of fat happy babies kicking ladies in the metro now

And the mirrors won’t sing back divine
Be it choppin’ your hair or you’re choppin’ a line
But you laugh-crack-up they laugh-crack-up and smile

Whoo! Alright, let’s fall apart and the clock starts here and now
Tick tick tick tick tick tick, ow!

She said your allegory is far too blunt
I said this ain’t no laboratory, you’re the cunt
She said emotional distance, it doesn’t rhyme
Or resonate brilliance in its time
But is it lyrical genius or crap rock poetry?
I say the lineage runs Morrison, Patti Smith, then me

But maybe the reason we’re so uninspired
is cuz the hour’s late and the bodies are tired,
I think everybody here can agree
That a party ain’t great cuz the booze is free
Naw, free spirits ain’t setting no one’s spirit free

Yeah, uh huh, I’m fallin’ apart and the clock stops here and now
Tick tick tick tick, oh

Wind it up now!

People don’t dance no more, (what!)
They just stand there like this: (uh huh)
They cross their arms and stare you down and drink and moan and diss (that’s right!)
People don’t dance no more (uh huh)
They just stand there like this (yeah!)
They cross their arms and stare you down and drink and moan and diss (ok!)

People don’t dance no more, (what!)
They just stand there like this: (that’s right!)
They cross their arms and stare you down and drink and moan and diss (ok now!)
People don’t dance no more
they just stand there like this
They cross their arms and stare you down and drink and moan and diss

Y’all ready girls? (uh huh, yeah)

Break!
