about

This song was originally recorded to 16 track in 2006 for no particular project. It's obvious to me now that this is a King Toad song, it sounds just like a King Toad song, but for some reason I was nearly positive for several years that it was NOT a King Toad song. An almost identical version of this track was hastily added to 2007's "Adam's Taint" LP, on which it was lost & thoroughly out of place. It was later resurrected & given backing vocals for 2009's not-even-sure-it-ever-existed porno gross-out fest "Pussy Boner & the Big Big Tits," where the poor little ditty no doubt felt even more lost & out of place. Thankfully, an almost identical version of the almost identical version of the original track has finally found its proper home here on "Hooray for the Bad Guy!" Amen.

lyrics

Oh, dear people, you make me bored with myself
And I was bored with myself anyway, OK
Let's just go downtown & get a bite to eat
And make fun of what we see along the way
The demons they can feel but they don't feel pain
They just want to have a good time all the time
And me I'm living off of gas stations & vending machines
And this life is d-d-d-dumb but it's mine
All the air you've been breathing out
It has circled around the world
And all the time you've just been standing here
Well your breath's already seen the world
You can see the shape of your gods in the sky
But not your hand in front of your face, I know
And if I look to far I'm gonna burn myself
On places I never meant to go
Places I never wanted to go
Places I wasn't meant to go
All the air you've been breathing out
It has dispersed around the world
And all the life you've just been wasting here
Well your breath's already seen the world
