deadbeat


i think i get it now.
work all day,
get home and try
to forget it now.

move with the
deadbeat
hum to the
deadbeat
think i’ll add
some drums to the
deadbeat

i think i get it now.
stack that cheese,
get home and get
shredded now.

move with the
deadbeat
hum to the
deadbeat
think i’ll add
some drums to the
deadbeat

i think i get it now.
knead some dough,
the goal is to
get breaded now.

move with the
deadbeat
hum to the
deadbeat
think i’ll add
some drums to the
deadbeat

i think i got it now,
i focus all my energy
on checking boxes now.

and the list keeps
getting smaller,
i check 4 boxes now.

i work, i eat, i laugh, i sleep
and every second counts
for all of thee above.

the boxes i struggle with:
to live, to smile, to love.

so i get it now.
nothing’s more
hypnotic than that
deadened sound.

the one that
makes you
wanna–

move with the
deadbeat
hum to the
deadbeat
i think i’ll add
some drums to the
deadbeat
