Track Name: Firing
Who am I good enough for?
Your disapproving eyes
Are becoming an eye sore
Only indulge in the approved recreations
Buy and sell, accept this hell
And then you'll find salvation

Long waves of laughs
I like it best
Cut time in halves
Won't be oppressed
Cause I'm firing on all cylinders
Fly at half mast
Mourn your own death
Your best days past
But not me
Cause I'm firing on all cylinders

Defeatist from the break of dawn
I'll smirk at my quirks
And the marathon

School. Work. Die.
School. Work. Die.
School. Work. Die.
School. Work. Die.
School. Work. Die.
School. Work. Die.
Things make sense if you say them enough times.
