let's go! let's go! there's a message all around as you're heading downtown saying "we will save us!" "we will save us!" running down the isle and the crowd goes wild screaming "we will save us!" "we will save us!" roaring like an engine going fast on the highway a pretty good sign that things will go our way maybe we're middling but that's okay 'cause we will always say let's go mills, baby, come on hit the ball we're the gayest team around and we're gonna do it all! let's go mills, baby, third line in the row set a fire, eat the rich and let's steal home! come on, steal home! by the luck of the draw we're in the wild call chanting "new phone, hu-bris!" "we can do this!" two rounds done and we're running gun screaming "new phone, hu-bris!" "we can do this!" bottom of the ninth, 3-5, its an upset everybody cries, puffy eyes, our cheeks wet and you're tellin' us to end our set but we're not givin' up just yet! let's go mills, baby, come on hit the ball we're the gayest team around and we're gonna do it all! let's go mills, baby, third line in the row set a fire, eat the rich and let's steal home! screw it all, steal home! good morning good mills!

I’ve spent ten years sitting on this floor Staring at my note filled door Looking for some way to flip you off And I find that every year “Nothing wrong, all happy here” So why’d you say that our fates are sealed So give us some way of finding out What we can do, what it’s all about Cos I’ve heard whispers on the wind That this ain’t real, it’s for our sins Remember those who died in flame If it’s me next, don’t forget my name Remember those who are washed away Just please make sure it’s not in vain It’s funny how it all goes wrong When nothing’s up, the threat is gone The evil god has had its day Unless of course it’s not that fair Say what are you doing there? Look at how they have their fun So give us some way of finding out What we can do, what it’s all about Cos I’ve heard whispers on the wind That this ain’t real, it’s for our sins Remember those who died in flame If it’s me next, don’t forget my name Remember those who are washed away Just please make sure it’s not in vain Why are we still burning? Why are we still drowning? (x6) So give us some way of finding out What we can do, what it’s all about Cos I’ve heard whispers on the wind That this ain’t real, it’s for our sins So give us some way of finding out What we can do, what it’s all about Cos I’ve heard whispers on the wind That this ain’t real, it’s for our sins Remember those who died in flame If it’s me next, don’t forget my name Remember those who are washed away Just please make sure it’s not in vain And I know it's not fair, And I know it's not right. I know you just want to be treated right. I can't let go. It's killing me.

lang and ollie on first and second and i’m feeling quite upset ‘cause kichiro just messaged me and she’s playing hard to get i’ve got a bad hangover and bloodshot eyes and so i strike out looking under pitch-dark skies know we need a hit, but i can’t deal with it with my bad vibes, my bad vibes, my bad bad bad bad bad now i’m in the outfield and i’m looking quite perplexed ‘cause avila’s in miami and she doesn’t even text it’s like we had a breakup and i’m feeling the fatigue and suddenly my team is ranked the lowest in the league and if we had the playoffs, i’d tell the gods to [REDACTED] with my bad, my bad bad bad bad bad bad vibes good night seattle

You might've killed me once But you won't get that chance again Behold the put-out sun behold the bloodsoaked pouring rain A broken team beneath you and A league broken and burned Come to meet your killers Come to see you pay in turn Step up to the plate I'm gonna roast you like inferno roasts with hate - With unbearable pain I take careful aim With arm wound back You're in the path of a star player aflame Reality is changing I am being torn apart I'm stolen from my team But you can never steal my heart Square up on the pitching mound Blink twice if you can see The turncoat Jaylen saboteur Is signalling strike three Step up to the plate We're gonna crush you like a millstone crushes grain - Incredibly fine I glimpse the divine With bat cocked back You're in the path of a star player line drive I'm not gonna lose again I won't be your tool again No more killing, no more pain No more in the hall of flame This is my redemption arc I will be redeemed Let all the ashes in my wake Hem the blaseball seams Step up to the plate I'm gonna roast you as a god-damn reprobate - It's time for bloodshed This one's to the head No holding back You're in the path of a star player undead

ctrl and z together until my keyboard breaks in half i say "sorry" to the people who are looking at the graphs over and over, and then over again i copy-paste apologies, til i lose all my friends it's not my fault it's not my fault i just hurt people i hurt i just hurt people i hurt i want them to stop staring as i walk out on the field i wonder if this lesion is ever going to heal but there's stuff i gotta do, they yell at me for more if they gave it up for nothing, then nothing's what it's for it's not my fault it's not my fault i just hurt people i hurt i just hurt people i hurt

Hey CATS it is I your eagle on the needle your eyes in disguise none other than your DJ Eric the dog. And by the peanuts moldy dead radicle have I got some new for you: Our star, our friend the apple of our collective little eyes has been shelled by the shockingly shady shorty: York Silk. Now lend me your pretty little earholes for a moment while I lay down the Tale grew up loud by the Puget void bulge the size of Illinois arms of steel and eyes aflame it’s called a splort but to her it’s all a game 1 2 3 Ollies ready to win yeah with Loofah at bat we’re gonna win again TRY ME, BOYS 4’2” with a killer swing yeah he’s the pint-sized good vibes home run king roasted by the devil’s shell 12 seasons at bat and a week and a half in hell steps to the plate, crocs caked in mud gunblade in hand and out for blood oh a bad nut’s rising over Baltimore and the crabs are lookin’ to even up the score yeah some days it’s anybody’s game and some days you’re in the outfield, looking to make 'em feel the shame go on go on go on go on go on go on go on bottom of the first score 1 & 0 York steps to bat v. Chorby Soul a pile of bones up on the mound York stands firm on the shark-soaked ground infinity reached up inside his head as the pod scars hardened and the honey bled Ollie in the outfield holdin’ court itchin’ to tag that prideful dork kept her cool like Seattle rain can’t see the fear can’t feel no pain eyes to the skies, is that a shell? no birds in Seattle no light in hell cuz a bad nut’s falling down on Baltimore can't hear the screams can’t see the score some days you’re everybody’s friend and some days you’re in the dark watchin’ the old die young again yeah and some say if you put your ear against the shell you can still hear her scream screamin' I can’t go on being the thing you hate I can’t believe ain't got a future for my faith I can’t go on being the thing you hate how long inside the dark, how long must I wait? I can’t go on being the thing you hate where’s my tomorrow? is it already too late? I can’t go on being the thing you hate I can’t believe this static life is my fate

it's been so long since i've seen an eclipse heard the thunderous roar of the feedback and the memories of lightning strikes and white glowing eyes of the angels that took my friends from me they all came rushing back i blink my eyes and the world around me has barely changed so give me a break so leave my selfish body on its own sweep me away let the flood wash over and take me away let the void consume me just for a day don't you worry, i'll find my own way so sweep me away the power's still out the rain's still pummeling down but the sound isn't loud enough to drown out the past i watched my friends get hurt i watched my friends get burned i watched my friends tell me "i love you too" as i stared out the airport window, tears in my eyes the water was always there i close my eyes the world around me will never change so give me a break so give my selfish mind some release sweep me away let the flood wash over and take me away let me find my solace just for a day don't you worry, i'll find my own way so sweep me away just leave me broken and scattered floating and shattered i don't wanna matter

I wake up on a rock hard bed Sweep the dreams out from in my head And hold her in my mind I’m running late, need to see my team Another zombie, not the first they’ve seen This place seems to attract my kind I get my head in They see my problem That she’s all that I’ve got left And now I’m oh so lonely But see the nights are holy Cause I can pretend that she’s lying on my chest I’ve got the best life, cause I'm living with the best wife, so I’ll keep on holding on Even if it hurts a bit, in the places that the sharks have hit, I’ll keep her as number one Everyone I knew moved right along In the twenty years that I’ve been gone It’s not their fault, I know She’s all that’s left in this crazy world She’s been through shit that no one’s ever heard A good life is what she’s owed It’s messed up I know It’s all I’ve got though So I’ll just keep giving my best Because I’m oh so lonely But see the nights are holy Cause I can pretend that she’s lying on my chest I’ve got the best life, cause I'm living with the best wife, so I’ll keep on holding on Even if it hurts a bit, in the places that the sharks have hit, I’ll keep her as number one A fire is burning somewhere That I thought went out long ago It’s not fucking fair But now’s my time to go
