praise the day lyrics – flashlight brown

lost my cool at a brand new school
where the kids all smelt kind of strange
and i threw my chair when i caught the teacher’s glare
as she called me little mary-jane
all the ribbing that i god-d*mn took
from the kids left my ego in a whirl
and the kids would say while i sat and watched them play
hey there kid are you a boy are a girl

praise the day i’m old and grey
and don’t look much like a girl
and the kids all come and dance in the streets
proclaiming me the king of the world

figured it’d be fine when i hit grade nine
and i’d grow a big beard really soon
till the first day of gym when i met father tim
and he sent me to the girl’s change room

ill*strate my weekly p*ss come across as feeling cr*ss
submit for credit or just share your thoughts
search my archive for a joke a thousand drives and beers and hopes
look out god i’m gonna die
my black candle won’t stop smoking even though i blew it out
my stigmata are signs of disease
reputation as the finest burnt your bridges to be sane
look out god i’m gonna die

now in the end i will surely transcend
all the things i was never meant to be
so with some skill and a little good will
out on ladies night i’ll get in bars for free
