hell yeah we're the garages slept for ten years, now we suck again whoa-oh, whoa-oh i betcha thought we’d gotten better but nothin’ ever gets better round here whoa-oh, whoa-oh yeah we’re sorry to disappoint but that’s always been the point yeah we’re sorry to disappoint but honestly we never cared what you thought about us we’ll suck forever we don’t even give a shit we’ll suck forever i hope we never get a hit we’ll suck forever we don’t even give a shit about what you think and i’m pretty sure that’s what punk rock means success is for capitalists so every time we fail it’s basically praxis whoa-oh, whoa-oh who cares about the bottom line we’re on a one way ticket to party time whoa-oh, whoa-oh yeah we’re sorry to disappoint but i think you’re missing the point yeah we’re sorry to disappoint but what’d you expect from a bunch of cranky anarchists we’ll suck forever yeah we’re losers to the end we’ll suck forever and then we’ll party with our friends we’ll suck forever even if we sweep the playoffs and ascend yeah we’ll kill the gods, and we’ll still suck then and if the boss tries to keep us down we’ll flip her off from the dugout grounds yeah we’re sorry to disappoint but that’s always been the point yeah we’re sorry to disappoint but honestly who gives a shit what you think about us we’ll suck forever I hope we never ever win we’ll suck forever yeah we’re losers till the end we’ll suck forever because you can’t make us care about what you think and I’m pretty sure that’s what “punk rock” means. (well, that and punching nazis. those two things.)

“Raise the dead” That’s what they said But we know it’s not so simple, you see When the team Completes the dream Who will be left unseen? When she passed away Those of us who had to stay Don’t what she’s seen in the underland So how could we doom one of the band? So watch out We’ll hunt you We’ll find your hidey-hole We’re gonna keep running and running Till we take back what you stole But we don’t Know what will Happen when you’re seen So till then we will try and keep her at number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Is the sun a god? What about the peanut too? When we’ve won this fight, do we fight them too? But for now. We stay For the rest of our lives, we will know the gods are not on our side. Who’s side are they on? Who’s side are they on? So watch out We’ll hunt you We’ll find your hidey-hole We’re gonna keep running and running Till we take back what you stole But we don’t Know what will Happen when you’re seen So till then we will try and keep her at number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Number 14 (higher, lower (x8)) Hope that we’ll see them again In this life or another

Hey Goodwin, Hope you’re getting settled in Expectations were high When a five star pitcher joined us Hey Goodwin, First seasons aren’t ever easy But that period’s behind you And the team is behind you And they’ll agree with me That you lived under pressure And you deserve better than this Sure your stats could be better But that doesn’t matter I’d still bet it all on your pitch Cause Goodwin, there’s no way around it You’ll be a star when season starts It’s the truth We got your back, raise your head cause you got this I’ll cheer you on cause I believe in you I believe in you I believe in you I believe in you Goodwin, there’s no way around it You’ll be a star when season starts It’s the truth We got your back, raise your head cause you got this I’ll cheer you on cause I believe in you Goodwin, there’s no way around it (there’s no way around it) You’ll be a star when season starts It’s the truth We got your back, raise your head cause you got this I’ll cheer you on cause I believe in you (I believe in you)

what do you know about fairness? is "fair" for the highest bidder? do you blame us for their mess? are we really all winners? what do you know about investment? be honest, are we your cash cows? or is this set for recession? what do you twist in your favor now? you'll find we're a ruthless bunch and we're often correct when we have a hunch if the last few years were proof enough then you and I both know what's on our minds we're here to ask our new owner: something in that deal isn't disclosed is this a hostile takeover? if so, there's something that you should know: this is a warning from us to you now that our end of the deal is due if you've got some hell to put us through you know what happened last time, don't you? we've done it once and we'll do it again no one will die in your name but you so if you think about bringing the end just rest assured it will be yours too

look at me, look at me, look at me there ain’t an “i” in the winning team but i tell you where there is a “we” it’s in, “we’re getting rid of fascists, completely” you’re a part, you’re a part, you’re a part if you’re a human with a beating heart you don’t need to have a fist to fight just need to stand up against the right we’re on the attack we’re getting on track we’re beating them back bit by bit we all gotta play til we’re winning the day you know what they say: there is no second chair! you’re important! keep the t, keep the t, keep the t exile the terfs on the count of three and make every racist run and hide fifty points for every one that cries stay alert, stay alert, stay alert we gotta be there for our friends they hurt and listen to your allies who are under the heel but we have power that is tangibly real
