Recorded July 2015 in Flint, Michigan, for the Theatre Sessions


I've got a bunch of mangy cats
Living in my garage
They shit on everything and I hate them more than anything
Please just let them die, oh God

Nothing seems to go my way
I realize I've spent all day
Walking around with shit
On my shoes

And I would never hurt a fly, but please someone just tell me why
I have to wait for cats to die before I can be happy again?

Shut the fuck up
You don't know what you're talking about
I know better
So please shut your mouth

When you talk just to contradict
You come across as kind of a dick
I understand the need to speak
And make your thoughts seem legitimate

That's why the crowds clap and why they scoff
That's why, when it's quiet, they all cough
Because they can't stand to go without
Making any kind of fucking sound

And the girls from my high school
Getting pregnant like it was cool
They all get passed around
More than a joint on the playground

I'm not too smart, I don't know much
I'm just a guy who thinks too much
But I can keep it to myself
No one cares about anyone else
