National Broadcast Premiere: 9/4/15

lyrics

Our story is statistics
That chronicle beginnings
And endings and winnings
The perils of making livings
The swallowing of feelings
The cringing, the crawling
Singing or balling
The blues is the muse
When abused by the calling
And it plays so loud
Taunting so flaunting it
How u likin me now
Say we started from the bottom
Now we here in the mix
Doin it once again
Like the presents a gift

Gotta do it
When the odds are against
Aint nothin to it
Cause every efforts a win
We gotta do it
Now we do it again
Gotta do it do it do it do it do it

Til you satisfied
Eyes on the prize
Cause from the very start
They move the finish line
Ain't no compromise
Aint no end in sight
No waiting for tomorrow
We doin it tonight
In a quiet room
Thoughts like a sonic boom
But we sonic youth
Poison and toxic proof
Absolute so aint nobody even asking you
For permission
Cause you aint the boss of not a single clue

Chorus
