lyrics

She was posing like a model by the jukebox at the Waffle House
An invader in a bottle shaped human figure hour glass
Chameleon iguanas coming down from the heavens now
I’m smoking marijuana my head in some kind of suspension now
It’s a lesson now when you steal forbidden powers
The higher ups will fire up their spaceships and we cower
I tried to send a warning but y’all looked at me like I’m the insane one
No one believed we would see the alien invasion

We were at the boiling point ready to fall ready to break
We did everything we could but it was already too late
We were at the boiling point ready to fall ready to break
We did everything we could but it was already too late
We were at the boiling point ready to fall ready to break
We did everything we could but it was already too late

I harnessed my stolen powers dawned my cloak of invisibility
I snuck upon the mothership men in black enlisted me
They were pissed that we couldn’t fight this enemy
If I could save the world I could indeed have indemnity
I knew that we did everything that we possibly could
My efforts would be futile in this flying saucer that I stood
It was like being back in college where I was failing and flunked
So I snuck inside the ship’s showers to peep some alien junk

We were at the boiling point ready to fall ready to break
We did everything we could but it was already too late
We were at the boiling point ready to fall ready to break
We did everything we could but it was already too late
We were at the boiling point ready to fall ready to break
We did everything we could but it was already too late

about

Sweeney Toad Palm Beach, Florida

If you're looking for nerdcore, I can tell you I don't have nerdcore... but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let nerdcore go now, that will be the end of it - I will not look for you, I will not pursue you... but if you don't, I will find you... and I will nerdcore you. ... more
