A dark red sunset fills up the hillsides
We are all engulfed in its shroud
I know it's not up to me, but I'm inclined
To shoot your ass down and sing this aloud

Listen to me now
You better not speak up, or I'll knock you down
And when they ask you who you are
Say "I'm the king of something big and mean and great
And I've only really gotten that far"

Well I can't stand it when you ask me what I'm doing here
I can't stand where I'm going now
But I can sing, I can play, and life's just a melody
It's not just where you're going it's how

Listen to me now
You better not interrupt, or I'll strike you down
And when they tell us all to quit
We'll say yeah right, get a life, and I wish the best to you
Now sing it

    General CommentThis is a really upbeat song about some tough issues. The world is a stupid place, to be sure, but the hell with it. You only live once, just have as much fun as possible before you die.
