about

Like many man-children of my generation, I have a deep fear of being forced to grow up. This often comes in the form of marrying some woman who wants you to iron your clothes and stop drinking so much. I wrote this song after I broke up with my girlfriend who had recently bought me a nice grown-up watch for Christmas (WTF! My calculator watch is FINE! I wouldn't be caught DEAD wearing this fascist dad watch!)

We're married now.

lyrics

You think you're living on the edge?
You think you're living "rock and roll"?
Try this for a change: don't do anything at all

Start watching the grass grow
Saving up P.T.O.
Laughing at Jay Leno on your T.V.

You said to me you liked my lack of symmetry
My hair, my teeth, and other discreet parts of me
Then you dressed me up in styrofoam
Dressed me up in styrofoam

Go do what you want
Like I could tell you, "Don't"
Go have lots of little children
Go find your remote

Start watching the grass grow
Saving up P.T.O.
Laughing at Jay Leno on your T.V.

You said to me you liked my lack of symmetry
My hair, my teeth, and other discreet parts of me
Then you dressed me up in styrofoam
Dressed me up in styrofoam

You were my weekend
You were my clock
My workday sleep-in, then mid-morning fuck
Flowers in summer, then indian springs
The one and only greatest reason to never do this again
