lyrics

I GOT LOUSY ON THE CREATURE AND STOOD IN FRONT OF THE PIANO AND SLAMMED MY HANDS DOWN ON THE KEYS UNTIL I FELL ASLEEP AND IN MY DREAM I SAW AN ANGEL OR IT MIGHT’VE BEEN THE DOORMAN OF THE BUILDING I WAS STANDING IN FRONT OF SLAMMING MY HANDS ON THE BUZZERS “LET ME IN LET ME IN” WERE THE LYRICS I PENNED I PLAYED A SCALE UP THE WALL WHERE THE MARQUEE HAD BEEN AND WHEN THEY HEARD MY SONG THEY SAID I’D WRITTEN IT WRONG BUT WHEN IT’S COMPLETE THEY’LL THROW DIAMONDS AT MY FEET AW JEEZ WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING? PLEASE! AND THEN I PICKED UP A GUITAR HAVING REACQUAINTED WITH THE CREATURE AND I SLAPPED MY HANDS DOWN ON THE FRETBOARD UNTIL I FELL ASLEEP AND IN MY DREAM I SAW THE DEVIL SIX-PIECE SUIT AND EATING MONEY OR IT MIGHT’VE BEEN THE DOORMAN TRYING NOT TO GET SLAPPED IN THE FACE BY ME “LET ME OUT LET ME OUT” WERE THE LYRICS I SHOUTED AT THE A&R MAN AS HE THREW ME IN THE VAN I’D PLANNED A DOUBLE CHORUS BUT THEY LAUGHED IN MY FACE NOW I’M STUCK BETWEEN A DOC AND A PADDED PLACE HEY WAIT WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING? PLEASE! THIS IS MY MASTERPIECE! I GOT IN THE CAB AND HAD THE DRIVER DRIVE ME TO THE BUILDING WHERE I GLUED MY POSTER ON THE WALL UNTIL I FEL ASLEEP AND IN MY DREAM I SAW YOURS TRULY GLUEING HIS POSTER ON THE DOORMAN OR I MIGHT’VE BEEN AT HOME LYING FACE DOW IN THE CREATURE YOU BETTER TAKE IT FROM ME THIS IS THE BEST IT CAN BE I AM A CERTIFIED GENIUS SO WHY DON’T YOU AGREE? WHY DON’T YOU WANT TO BELIEVE IN MY RIDICULOUS DREAM? WHY CAN’T YOU SEE WHAT I SEE? WHY DON’T YOU HAVE MY DISEASE? WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING? PLEASE! THIS IS MY MATERPIECE!
