lyrics

Home Team
(J. Ward SOCAN / J. McDonald SOCAN)

Alright, all of my life, my pride and Ambition
Almighty, amazing.

That almighty amazing
My home team doing visitors in, you don’t test them

I did receive your wisdom. I did not bask in its splendour.
I wrapped it up and wrote "return to sender" on the envelope
I didn't need reminders, no I get it, your slender frame
will never know the strength of this majestic contender
Shame. I pull your card but this ain't Ender's game.
Of course it's not, and I ain't Orson Scott. I'm more like Fortinbras
I just sorta walked into a final act massacre-- vinyl scratch
What happened here? Did Joey's rap start?
I did your zodiac chart. Says you're a lying jerk
and only that. You just proved signs work!
Me? It says that I'm perf, a kind person worthy of
Impersonation… that's open to interpretation.
No perpetrating, I circle my perfect rating and the
First place ranking. I turn a soul clap to a
birthday spanking, might be slightly abrasive
Which reminds me, the phrase is almighty amazing

Broadcasting live to your station
once again for cats that been patient
three thousand cracking off in the basement
original, almighty, amazing

Alright, all of my life
Almighty, amazing
That almighty amazing
My home team doing visitors in, you don’t test them

Gather ‘round, figure out what the story is
Late to the party, but we still make it marvelous
Daily creation. Y’all doing nathan.
We do it all, my mind’s in three places
Simultaneous, most magnificent
Chopping up sounds, tapping on instruments
Live from the Atlantic, up north trip
Drop a new tape, make a buck or six
Me and myself overtime on the shift
No denying the gift, homie - I am the shit
The one through four, plus five and the six
Top ten all in one when I’m riding the kicks
Snares and the hats, looking in the mirror and I’m
Staring right back. Let me clarify that
I look to myself for the inspiration
That all-powerful, almighty, amazing

Broadcasting live to your station
once again for cats that been patient
three thousand cracking off in the basement
original, almighty, amazing

Alright, all of my life
Almighty, amazing
That almighty amazing
My home team doing visitors in, you don’t test them
