"Slay/Sway" as written by and Bob Mould....
How long have you lived in a dead end town where there's nothing around you
But an empty garage full of nothing to do / It was fun to have a few friends over

And maybe they'll bring some friends / It'll be the time when your family leaves
Maybe they'll leave for good

It blurred the lines between a CD-ROM and reality
But it was clear who was taking over the world / It wasn't going to be me

And all the forbidden thoughts came rushing out as one long night
The wind moaned through the broken window / I couldn't see where it was coming from

And then I'm stuck in a room / The Sex Pistols began to play
It was terribly lame in a predictable way

Someone plugged up the tub and the black crud started to come alive
Somebody shook my hand and they went at it again

A monkey shot in the mouth, I changed the view on the lens / I watched them do it again, and it was two against one
And one by one, my family came home

I tried to stall them and keep them away from the place where all of this happened
I needed time to clean it all up / And I ran for the armory

I said he works for the man who tried to conquer the world / I felt bad that I said he used to be an acquaintance
And everyone stood there and laughed at him / I turned and ran away

The dog was dragging me up the stairs around the fallen doors and garbage
And broke away off the leash / I couldn't keep up

And then I got to the top, the dog was three steps away / The second step was missing
And I said stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop / But it was way too late
