a small town, a mountain town
60 miles west of denver
the city of granby had no idea
they fucked with the wrong guy

you see, marvin was disgruntled
enough for 18 months of armor plating
in a 4 mile per hour rampage
he made history

"come on vacation, leave no probation"
alienation
sometimes you just want to knock it all down
plow your whole town into the ground
marvin did what we are too weak to
all the frustration that we all seethe with
he really took it all out

city hall, the mayors house
it all came down to the hardware store
where he fell into the floor
and had to take his own life

you know they're just going to knock it all down
everything you love into the ground
