Bouncing in Your Brain

October 28, 2017

Your foreman is an asshole
He treats you like a rat
You take your anger home
And blame it on your cat

Feelings aren’t smart
They’re not even sane
Like a ping pong ball
Bouncing in your brain

Voice inside you saying
Your folks are always right
So you must’ve deserved it
When they beat you every night

Thoughts get jumbled
And feelings tangle up
Like a mess of rusty razors
Tearing at your gut

When you see somebody happy

October 8, 2017

When you see somebody happy
Does it leave you feeling blue?
Do you wish for some affliction
To take them down a notch or two?

When you see somebody happy

Do you wonder if they’re true?
Like nobody should be happy
Who ain’t good enough for you

When you see somebody happy

Does it make you happy, too?
Do you get a little mad
They’re not miserable like you?

Holding Me Back

December 17, 2016

xxplayerhate
It’s 3 in morning
You say we gotta go
You really got a problem
Always wanting to control
You say you need some sleep
Cuz you gotta wake and work
You think you’re all grown
But you’re really just a jerk

Why you gotta frustrate
And hold a player back?
Haters gotta hate hate
And always attack

I need a thousand dollars
Cuz I got in a jam
Love to play the ponies
That’s just who I am
You say I need some help
With all your sanctimony
You think you’re so perfect
But you’re just a big phony

Why you gotta frustrate
And hold a buddy back?
Haters gotta hate hate
And always attack

Got a chance to get some Guccis
For seventeen bucks
Looking for investors
You just shit on my luck
When I try to succeed
You always step on my goals
You love to see me bleed
You’re such an asshole

Why you gotta frustrate?
And hold a brother back
Haters gotta hate hate
And always attack

Gossip Rumor Innuendo

January 2, 2015

She’s the kind we gotta watch
Time to take her down a notch
Keeping folks where they belong
Is what makes the village strong

Gossip rumor innuendo
Whisper slander hearsay
Slurs and lies and defamation
Character assassination
Violators gotta pay

The village has to spank her
Words are like an anchor
We police ourselves with hate
Like a bucket full of bait

Gossip rumor innuendo
Whisper slander hearsay
Slurs and lies and defamation
Character assassination
Violators gotta pay

They Hate Us for Our Sunshine

December 26, 2014

aaaaaaaaahaters

Seems like every time I look at
Some Eastern magazine
Another California-Hater’s
Blowing smoke out of his spleen

They hate us for our happy
They hate our smiling gleam
All those people pissing
On our California Dream

Cheering drought and earthquake
Feeding on their scorn
California-Haters
Watch the news like porn

Huddled by their heaters
I can almost hear them scream
All those people pissing
On our California Dream

Baited by our beaches
Folks come from all around
Y’all stop by; you’re sure to find
Someone from your hometown

They hate us for our sunshine
They hate our happenin scene
All those people pissing
On our California Dream
