about

This is a song about procrastinating on the Internet instead of doing the stuff I probably should be doing.

Here's the request for it: www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/12v0ff/songs_for_reddit_vol_ii_reddit_can_i_write/c6ycatx

lyrics

The weight of every little thing you want to get done
starts to cave, collapse and trap you in where there's no sun.
And all you want is to be able to see the the light.
but you dick around on the Internet, for the entire night.

The stacks of studying that you need to do
take a back seat to videos on youtube
because you need to know all the funny things that cats do.
Or have to F5 your Facebook page, to see if someone noticed you.

Trying to claw your way out of responsibility.
You've got so much time, you tell yourself
"This could never be the death of me!"

And ten pages of purple links on the screen
mindlessly clicking on everything.
Advice animals and questions that you've never asked but NEED to know the answer to.
Star Wars plot holes? Zach Braff did an AmA? Fuck EVERYTHING I was supposed to do.

And soon, the years have passed
and you're still sitting there on your ass.
Waiting, for whatever it is you think you need to light a spark in your life.
Numb to the world around you, the time that passes and the sun light.

So try to claw your way out of the hole you've dug so deep.
