"One Trick Pony" as written by Joel Zimmerman and Sofia Toufa....
Pump the brakes,
You're a red-flag, red light
Holdin' up a stop sign
I'll never be sloppy seconds

Go ahead, take them back,
Your one, two, three minutes
All you do is take, take,
Takin' off the little

Got more goin' on
I'd rather be eating glass,
Stick hot needles in my eyes,
Go ahead and tap that ass

Draw them up,
Yeah like there's candy girl
I ain't tryin'a connect
Or paint a picture

I'm not in it, never will be
You can't be me, get your freak on,
You can suck it, they've all seen it
And you liked it, now who wants it?
Cotton candy sugar high

Break your bones
When you come down
You're a one trick,
My trick pony who's next to hop on
Ride, ride, ride

'Bout to bring a blood spill
We've both been there,
What's the next stop? I won't sit still

Back to bring up what's real
We've both been there
What's the next stop? I won't sit still

Pump the brakes,
You're a red-flag, red light
Holdin' up a stop sign
I'll never be sloppy seconds

Go ahead, take them back,
Your one, two, three minutes
All you do is take, take,
Takin' off the little

Got more goin' on
I'd rather be eating glass,
Stick hot needles in my eyes,
Go ahead and tap that ass

Draw them up,
Yeah like there's candy girl
I ain't tryin'a connect
Or paint a picture

I'm not in it, never will be
You can't be me, get your freak on,
You can suck it, they've all seen it
And you liked it, now who wants it?
Cotton candy sugar high

Break your bones
When you come down
You're a one trick,
My trick pony who's next to hop on
Ride, ride, ride

'Bout to bring a blood spill
We've both been there,
What's the next stop? I won't sit still

Back to bring up what's real
We've both been there
What's the next stop? I won't sit still

    General CommentI think Deadmau5 is being ironic by making a dubstep-ish song. I think he's trying to make fun of dubstep by saying you're a "one trick pony".
    "I'd rather be eating glass,
    Stick hot needles in my eyes."
    He's never been shy to say he despises most edm artists for abusing easy rhythms. I think this was his way of saying fuck you in a song. Subtle, but maybe.

    Lyric Correctionfrom the fingers of SOFI herself:

    Pump the brakes, you're a red-flag red light
    holdin' up a stop sign. I'll never be sloppy seconds
    Go ahead and take 'em back, your one, two, three minutes
    All you do is take, take, takin' off, the little that
    you got on, goin' on, I'd rather be eating glass
    Stick hot needles in my eyes, go ahead and tap that ass
    Straw dumb blonde, brown licorice candy girl, I iz
    Dot connector, paint a picture
    I'm not in it, never will be
    Nope cant be me, get your freak on
    You can suck it, they've all seen it
    And you liked it, now he wants it
    Cotton candy suga high
    Break your bones when you come down
    You're a one-trick, mind trick, pony
    Who's next to hop on the ride, ride, ride...
    Back to bring-a-booksville
    We've all been there, what's the next stop? I won't sit still
    back to bring-a-booksville
    We've all been there, whats the next stop I wont sit still
