a flock hungry of birds gather in the outfield i guess a storm's coming in the stadium lights finally flickered out and i feel unstable the birds just keep staring they've found their prize they're mad at you, specifically you yeah, you know who you are do these birds have souls? well they've got more spirit than you anyway i hardly think a few birds are going to bring about the end of the world the birds are mad at you you specifically you know who you are

deep in the covers as the evening soaks the bright milky light of the full moon, a new moon, moon 2 pierces the caffeinated shadows. "this is a dream" you'd say, if you could ever feel the words but this is the city that never sleeps, that cannot sleep and then you smell it: burnt vanilla, ash, notes of [infinite] as if to say: "it's alright it's a beautiful night, and you're falling" every drive is a midnight drive, windows down to taste the rain, feel the chill, drink the air to remind yourself that we will make it the darkness isn't whole, it's full of holes every window light a local stain in the firmament, dollops that whisper: "they can try to stop this deluge but like hot water through grounds, we'll just pour right through"

we might forfeit this game and forfeit next we might forfeit our peanuts and forfeit our bets we might forfeit our money and forfeit our time and forfeit our happiness just to get by we might forfeit our friendships or forfeit our team forfeit a good night’s sleep so we forfeit our dreams we might forfeit our love and forfeit our fame we forfeit so much to keep playing this game we raise a flat white flag that we hope you respect because we forfeit so much that we're all deep in debt and if we still can’t make it trying to beat all the odds but we’ll never forfeit our fight against the gods

radio check, check spaceman, can you hear me? [beep beep] awesome, so uh, can I explain an idea we have for a chant for you real quick? it’s a bit of a logic train [beep!] okay, so...spaceman we’re assuming you're an extraterrestrial so step one: ET, like the movie what happens in the movie? the bike flies and it’s over the moon let’s hone in on the bike part the bike has a chain, right? what else has a chain? popular north american game show chain reaction so with that game show, which is great by the way, what else has reactions? the discord, we use reactions guess what else has a discord my little pony there’s a character named discord, or so i’m told and summers pony is on our team, are they not? therefore, the only logical follow-up is autumn also known as fall fall...guys like the video game fall guys and what other video game coincided in popularity at the same time? among us! what platform is among us sold on on pc? steam who made steam? valve valves are used in applications where there is some sort of flow, usually through a pipe now you wanna ask yourself, what else has a pipe? well, any self-respecting gentleman of the early 20th century and those guys? they were kinda not good what else wasn’t good? the ET video game! yep, this is going back there you gotta take the bike part back now remember how i said it was crossing the moon? the bike was crossing the moon and what was ET in? a basket! on the bike! and where do you take baskets? to a garden which garden? the olive garden therefore, we should chant “UNLIMITED BREADSTICKS” every time you take the mound I rest my case spaceman? are you still there? UNLIMITED BREADSTICKS UNLIMITED BREADSTICKS nice unlimited breadsticks
