LANG GANG 02:12
i think he's gonna choke when he steps up to the plate i think he's gonna lay face down when the Magic put him in his place but then the Blood Drain gurgled (yeah) and the world went quiet (yeah) and his arms felt different (yeah) and the Lang Gang came alive: "yeah! he's better than he was now! yeah! he's got Yeong-Ho's better blood now! yeah! he's gonna take it to the blood bank! yeah! he's gonna show the league his new strength!" and then the Blood Drain gurgled (yeah) and he took his little sippy (yeah) but it tastes so dirty (yeah) yeah the Blood Drain killed his vibe

thought we’d maximized blaseball, prepared for a grand slam heard the umpires scream while the void burst from its dam but our celebration was cut brief turns out necromancy isn’t cheap now we’re left worried we’ll lose players while we’re asleep there’s no rules we can know for sure the book’s still unclear there’s no sure way forward here the ground is shaking under us we’re feeling unstable guess that happens when players don’t stay null now we live in a hell of our own creation our mayor is beaming more than hendricks richardson so we messed around and blasphemed a bit now the internet league‘s all scared of getting hit could have used a financial advisor before this debt there’s no rules we can know for sure the book’s still unclear there’s no sure way forward here the ground is shaking under us we’re feeling unstable guess that happens when players don’t stay null every game now has us bracing for the day’s incineration will this virus keep erasing our brightest no one said that resurrection would mean that the dead would come back hungry once they’ve fed we’ve lost too many but they’re all credits to their teams but there’s no rules we can know for sure the book’s still unclear there’s no sure way forward here the ground is shaking under us we’re feeling unstable guess that happens when players don’t null

you think i'm easy, don't you? it's just as simple as that you give me what i want and i leave you alone for life but that's not how it works i won't be bought, i can't be bribed you should come over some time and i'll cut out your eyes i don't want your blessings i want you to shove them, shove them, yeah i don't want your blessings i want you to shove them, shove them, yeah i think it's time you witnessed the end to all your means if i can't make it easy i'll make sure the knife is clean you stand so tall and mighty up there with all the gods but if you wanna dance then i am willing to break it down i don't want your blessings i want you to shove them, shove them, yeah i don't want your blessings i want you to shove them, shove them, yeah it's a pathetic gesture a spineless kind of nod you're just a wooden idol a counterfeited god i can look you in the eyes and i won't turn to stone cause when we stand together that means you'll die alone i don't want your blessings i want you to shove them, shove them, yeah i don't want your blessings i want you to shove them, shove them, yeah

At the table in the corner sits a man beside himself Wondering how he got here and if it's worth it in the end The diamond calls, haunting every waking hour of his life Ever since he took that step to become a credit to the team But he knows, it's all gone, even though his glove still fits so well This blaseball fantasy, has it always just been a dream? Stay gold - Mikeyboy You left a cleatprint in our hearts Stay gold - Mikeyboy You deserve a retirement arc He crossed the void, brought Jaylen back and just knew he had to leave He went where noone went before and shamed the gods right off their throne Our shameful pitcher became our savior and now he deserves to rest No more peanuts, no more birds He's finally home Stay gold - Mikeyboy You left a cleatprint in our hearts Stay gold - Mikeyboy You deserve a retirement arc

Oh the rites are sealed The pentagram's been drawn We've got her in our sights now Idolatry's gone too far Who cares about the finals? My mind's set on one thing Necromancy's a stretch for some But not this band! Jaylen come back to us! Jaylen come back to us! Jaylen, let's spite the gods! Jaylen let's give it a shot! Jaylen will spite the gods! Jaylen we'll give it our all!

From Seattle there’s a team in a baseball league Garages are their name and they’re here to cause a scene Bound together by the music inside A rag-tag crew, but all gods should run and hide Do you hear them coming? Hear the bass drum thumpin’ They’ll park it on the field in the name of Jaylen Forget about the gods, our music does the savin’ Know you hear them coming Those guitar riffs? Stunnin’ We got Townsend, Clark, and Spliff no there ain’t no jokin’ Garages on the field, on some peanuts you’ll be choking, oh Jaylen Hotdogfingers, why were you taken from us so soon Forbidden book opens right on up, then we were betrayed by the moon But this time, we write our own fate Play into the void, hear your long lost team The one who slipped through our fingers Will we win her back on lottery? Garages, Garages, our time has yet to come, but Garages, Garages, I know this season’s the one Do you hear them coming? Yes our hearts keep pumpin’ I cannot lie, yes I know we’re the one We won't stop jammin’ ‘till we kill the sun Know you hear them coming We won't stop runnin’ We park it on the field in the name of Jaylen Look out gods, soon you’ll need saving, oh

I guess now it's time for me to give up I feel it's time Got a picture of you beside me Got your lipstick mark still on your coffee cup Got a fist of pure emotion Got a head of shattered dreams Gotta leave it, gotta leave it all behind now Whatever I said, whatever I did I didn't mean it I just want you back for good (Want you back, want you back, want you back for good) Whenever I'm wrong just tell me the song and I'll sing it You'll be right and understood (Want you back, want you back, want you back for good) I want you back for good Unaware but underlined I figured out this story It wasn't good But in the corner of my mind I celebrated glory But that was not to be In the twist of separation you excelled at being free Can't you find A little room inside for me And we'll be together, this time is forever We'll be fighting and forever we will be So complete in our love We will never be uncovered again
