lyrics

Repurpose, recycle, reform, reuse
Redistribute, reset, refine, refuse to
Retrograde or reminisce or revert into obsolescence
Restitution, not an option

Well, everything breaks and gets replaced,
I won’t weep when the junky bug out.
Yes, of course, they degrade. There’s a part we can save.
Don’t geek when the junky bug out.
There’s a use still yet for you in the set.
When the Pulse begins to cut out. So,
Let’s check the damage and get the salvaging
Crew when the junky bug out.

When your screws get loose, and you leak out juice -
You’re done, done, that’s the junky bug out.
We need to gut the chassis, and dump the trash, see
It’s fun when the junky bug out. There’s
Maybe gears, maybe chains, maybe chipset brains
We can re-format and dump out.
If you don’t run, don’t run from the brick you become.
Nothing wrong with a junky bug out.

Repurpose, recycle, reform, reuse
Redistribute, reset, refine, refuse to
Retrograde or reminisce or revert into obsolescence
Restitution, not an option

What’s a glitch?
What’s a defect?
What’s the cause here?
Where’s the pretext?
Where’s the preset?
Where’s the key kept?
Is it my fault?
Why'd it reject?
Why’d I freeze up? And,
Is it my mistake?
How is it my mistake?
How could I not just make it work?
It’s not working out.
Now I gotta air it outside
Get the junky bug out.

Repurpose, recycle, reform, reuse
Redistribute, reset, refine, refuse to
Retrograde or reminisce or revert into obsolescence
Restitution, not an option

Uhh, why’d you go and spread that?
How’d you even get that far?
When you’re junky bug out. Ehhhh-
You don’t have the outlook,
You shouldn’t get output here,
When you’re junky bug out.
And, you made a follower? How’d you make a follower
When following is what you’re all about?
You have suffered setbacks.
You don’t just eject back in
When you’re junky bug out.

Repurpose, recycle, reform, reuse
Redistribute, reset, refine, refuse to
Retrograde or reminisce or revert into obsolescence
Restitution, not an option
Repetition of a problem Isn’t a solution
Glitchy, sticky situations
Haven’t a utilization
Take them to repurposing
Where part redistributing
Is the glorious destiny of
No-good, busted hunks of junk.
Good riddance.
