Song inspired by being dissatisfied with a social lifestyle of getting drunk at bars, and being wholly discontent with the political system.

Chorus was inspired by a webcomic: www.ohjoysextoy.com/mysticwand/


I don't feel like doing it,
And if I did,
It's not as fun as back when we were kids.
But hey, what is?

I don't wanna sound like an optimist,
Cuz we're going down in a sinking ship,
But hey, I swim.
But hey, I can swim.

And if it's not entertaining,
You can just change the channel.
Like that girl who's masturbating in a hotel in Seattle.

And if it's not entertaining,
You can just change the channel.
You can find me masturbating in that hotel in Seattle.

I don't feel like doing it,
and if I should,
It probably wouldn't end up any good.
But hey, what would?

I don't wanna sound like a pacifist,
Cuz I would hurt every single one of you,
If I was any good at violence.
Yeah you're lucky that I'm not prone to violence.

Cuz it's not entertaining,
On every goddamn channel.

You're violently penetrating my society
With a wooden broom-handle.

You're violently penetrating my mind,
With a wooden, splintered broom-handle.
