This is one of the first songs written for #walledgardens, but was cut at the last minute for time (as I was determined to stay at a classic vinyl-era album length of 40 to 45 minutes) and because the same theme was already covered in Year Zero and New Leather Raincoat, both of which fit the album better sonically. I'm still very happy with this one, though, especially the Nesmith-meets-Bacharach chord progression, and didn't want it to go to waste, so here 'tis.
That's a good one Get that down I will destroy them And bring you their heads on a pole I am ready More than ready Hey did they notice me Hey did they smile I am very Ordinary Say what to say I'm your ally I'm your buddy I'll slay who you want me to slay I will do anything If I'm allowed I am waiting Always waiting
We're the shock troops that hurl ourselves into the wall Hey come at me Where's my money
Hey did you see me climb right up his ass and Work him ably Like a muppet Now they'll all see Boy look at me I'm amazing I don't like you playing those games I don't like your jokes and I don't like your songs I will drop you Don't you test me Ah say what to say I can't be expected to do this alone Only worry More's the pity
I'm a man of big words I'm a man of small times Don't you like me Won't you like me
I think you owe me I'll tell on you now hey I'm amazing I'm a hero I'll pull out the pin I'm not worthy You're not worthy I warned you all how this would go I can't believe I once got drunk with you
You are nothing I'm an army Fight with children Scream at numbers Punctuation Is a weapon Long ellipses Don't you like me Smash that button Smash that button
