lyrics

Why is this even a choice?
What inconceivable noise.
I’ve been a beacon of poise.
I’ve been unweakened and void
Of sleeping and keeping myself unemployed.
Deep in the function is where I’ve been reaching
The peak of my stride. It’s a ceiling of comfort.
That feeling of going one hundred &
Knowing you never go under or hiccup or stumble.

Till in come come a tumble.
Here come a fumble.
In come a newcomer itching to rumble
Built up a rep, and I’m letting it crumble.
Leaving my legacy lesser than humble.
Listen, you imbecile, I do not ramble.
I am the admin. I am the anvil.
Your paperweight reign has been canceled.
Quit it or you will be handled.

Lay off! Lay off! Lay off! Lay off!
Lay off! Lay off! Lay off and stay off!

Who thought you got it? You’re way off.
Who thought you got it? You’re way off.
Whoever guided you, stay off.
What got inside of you? Stay off.

Making me look bad in the process.
Get that slip when you show up in my office.
Listen, kid. You don’t get to where the boss is.
When you go and glitch and resist what the boss says.

Why is this even a choice?
Olive, you giving a junky a voice?
Why are you letting this cretinous tetanus empty its
Wreckage all over the droids?
I was annoyed. Now I’m afraid it’s a matter of
More than anomaly. Now there’s a pattern that’s
Spamming the servers. Jamming the pulse.
Damning the data. I’m claiming it’s false.
Pages and pages and pages of false
Labels endanger the safety of all.
Enabling this is like taking the fall.
Breaking the precedent. Waiting to stall.
Disable them all! OBEY.
Are you not hearing a word that I say?
The system is plagued. It’s under a sway
A raging infection invading my space. So,

Lay off! Lay off! Lay off! Lay off!
Lay off! Lay off! Lay off and stay off!

Who thought you got it? You’re way off.
Who thought you got it? You’re way off.
Whoever guided you, stay off.
What got inside of you? Stay off.

Making me look bad in the process.
Gave me that slip when you showed up in my office.
Listen, kid. How’d you get to where the boss is
When you only glitch and resist what the boss says?
