Puns. Fuckin' puns.


Stress I guess is killing me dead
I address the voice in my head
He says everything is fine

Right or wrong he's probably yes
Might's a strong word but I confess
I don't know just what is mine

And I don't know how to be kind
Whisper in my open mind
Tease my brain a couple times
Today I took the escalator, everybody staired

Stand in place; stroll round the block
Then step off and go for a walk
Oh, my legs they wheel so fast

Drive a car pop all four tires
Ride a bike be often admired
For your eco-friendly little ass

But you will be forever passed
Walking may still come in last
Shadows break and need a cast
Today I took the stairs, things escalated

Elevate it floor by floor
You're escalate get out the door
Stair me down, step out of line
Everything's not doing fine
Today I took the elevator, it went pretty quick
