lyrics

p-teK rhymes with reject
and p-teK rhymes with respect
and i get both so i don't need this shit
i get play but i don't keep it
i'm tweetin' out the tweeters
went from "he's alright"
to "jesus christ
could we supply
this freak a mic?"
sheeeit
so keep those eyelids
peeled and don't be surprised when
i leap and dive in
and a million fishes swim out like
some freakin' brine shrimp
sea monkeys
lookin' for free lunchies
they're hooked by the hook
and hopefully'll give me money
flashback to my past when
i was just a geek starting
chef boyardee around my mouth
after eating ravioli
my first school, my second school
elementary darling --
throw a weird new kid in the fray and
watch him get beat bloody
then watch him learn how you work
he hurt, but he studied
you heard me?
i herd you
you're beef and he's hungry
fuck it he's starving...

i'm never going home again
the road stretches out ahead
and i'm gone
i'm never goin' home again
and this is just the beginning
of my song
i'm never goin' home again
but when i get to where i'm goin'
i'll send a postcard
i'm never goin' home again
so so long
i'm up and on

lonely road is travelled by the lone wolf
cut the babblin'
go for broke
or go home
we ain't battlin' madeline
went from too aggressive to not hood enough
from lettin' it pass to "no! it's just not good enough!"
from the puttin' up
with shit in junior high
cut the bullshit you decide
what would you do?
i double dare you
figure it out
stupid wild and
crazy kids
but this ain't nick
already got my guts
so let the show begin
i was alone and i didn't know
anything at all
but i followed my hopes so if
anything at all
just know i'd do
anything at all
for the moment
i first felt this shit begin to call me
i was falling
now i know i should let go
but i don't even remember what
i had to let go
i'm too high up on the ladder now to ever let go
heck no
and i just
wanted to say that i'll miss you all so much
but i've got to go
this is the life

i'm never going home again
the road stretches out ahead
and i'm gone
i'm never goin' home again
and this is just the beginning
of my song
i'm never goin' home again
but when i get to where i'm goin'
i'll send a postcard
i'm never goin' home again
so so long
i'm up and on

never let anyone tell you you don't deserve what you want in this world
that's fuckin' absurd
strip the suit ditch the loot and just run
this is the truth and it's fun
hey no one's business-proof but
a little looseness never did a bit any sickness to this one!
you risk it you play it you make a lot of mistakes
or work a job and complain but i'm not gonna take it!
watch me be great.
