lyrics

Years
featuring Nole
(J. Ward SOCAN, J. McDonald SOCAN, N. Kidd)

Capping off quite a year, you can hide in here
They say rust never sleeps, but that does not explain my career
Checkmate, atheists! No games like the New Kids
But the newest kids watch Let’s Plays instead of celebrity sex tapes
Don’t ever play peek-a-boo with leaked nudes, that’s a PSA
I clap back like no-one told you life was gonna be this way! Jesus H
I spent my thirties hurting, is that personal? I’ve seen the works
Like hurt people hurt people, and hurt people hurt the hurt people hurt people hurt!
What’s even worse? I am Weird Al in a fat suit, after all these years
A pastiche of the thing I love, a lottery loser, a volunteer
A fallen hero one day short of starting to save for retirement
This summer I fired a fireman, couldn’t find a tinier violin
Sorry

Starting out quite a year, I need quiet here
This shit hard to hear. I don’t need a safe space, I need riot gear
Right? I know how you feel about Nole, man, well I been aware
I was homeless with them face tats and I quit crack, I’m a pioneer
It’s never been done before! Well, maybe it really has
But I hit rock bottom, and baby, I made it back!
I paved paradise and put up a parking lot, then changed it back to trees and grass
I put Tim Curry from Fern Gully in a full nelson and kicked his ass, done
No contest. That’s all meta: Ron Artest
Hit em with that Dhalism, yoga fire, that long-arm stretch
I spent almost twenty-eight years dealing with that long, hard stress
I’m kicking thirty, Jesse pushing forty, May December that name don’t make much sense

We should that name to The No-Longer-Targeted Audiences
It’s catchy. It’s a good name, it rolls off the tongue.
