"funk pop a roll beats up my soul"


my alleged career
don’t waste a tear on me now
all the damage was done cause i dreamt
of being a star
drinking light beer by the pool while the action went on
in the hotel bar

my alleged career

my alleged career
watching the treat of the week
get to sleep with the girl that i just wanted to kiss
a peck on the cheek would have done
now i’m waiting alone with this dumb bouquet

my alleged career

who in hell do you think you’re impressing
by dressing like you’re 23 years old

my alleged career
maybe i’m doing this wrong
but this leather thong’s hurting my ass
trying to pass for some kind of cool modern rock masochist 
when i’m really a slave to the song
called my alleged career

my alleged career

please go away
please go away
please go away
