the waterboy looks down on him as he picks up the ball it's another awful day it's another awful day for mike townsend our prodigal son, our shameful pitcher, mike townsend and he pitches the ball in the same way to the same place every time, like an asshole and it's a strong hit to the outfield and a double for the spies mike townsend is a disappointment he's a loser and a total disgrace mike townsend is a disappointment mike townsend better end up in flames yeah he throws the ball in the air so that he can catch it and look cool but he misses catching it on the way down so he just drops it on the floor and has to bend down and pick it up again like nobody just saw him drop it (pick it up, pick it up, pick it up) and then he pitches the ball in the same way to the same place every time, like an asshole and the batter sees the defeat in his eyes and there's no strikes, no outs, it's a home run, great job mike townsend is a disappointment he's a loser and a total disgrace mike townsend is a disappointment mike townsend better end up in flames yeah mike townsend is a disappointment he's a loser and a total disgrace

i can see the truth in your eyes as you're telling me lies like you know that you'll hold my hand again cause you don't know you will but i know how you feel and i don't know if i can watch you walk out on the field and there's the lightning strike across the pitch-black night and i wanna hold you close, but i can't i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back i can feel you pull away from me i can feel you retreat "duty calls" you say, and then it's all of the eyes on the pitcher throwing and it's all of the eyes on the way it's going and you hit the ball, and then it's out of our hands and there's the lightning strike across the pitch-black night and i wanna hold you close, but i can't i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back i don't wanna let you go in the feedback cause i don't know i'd get you back yeah, i don't know i'd get you back and there's the lightning strike across the pitch-black night and then the smoke obscures the place where you once stood and when it clears, you're just not there

theodore duende here, can you answer my call? i'm waiting in the wings to go, to go, i'm waiting in the wings and i can feel, the blood is pumping through me like the engine oil, and all the neurons won't stop firing all the neurons won't stop firing lift the limit now we're in it the reverb got us feeling like a new band like a new band lift the limit now we're in it the reverb got us feeling like a new band like a new band with a limiter released theodore duende here, my adrenaline is high and all the fires in my heart are lit from pheonixes that once flied and i can feel magnesium in my veins and i can feel the power I get from everyone who cheers my name

i'm riding in the front seat of a train car hurtling towards the heavens and i'm gonna catch you alone and i got my bag packed, and it's full of stuff that i can then use when i fight them off and i'm gonna catch you alone when i look you in the eyes i will start to realise you're pathetic, in the worst ways you're spineless, like on most days when i look you in the eyes i will start to realise you're not going anywhere, going anywhere when you go to fight gods but none of them live up to it and all of them give up, does that make you feel better? when you go to fight gods but none of them meet your eyeline does that make you feel fine, or are you disappointed? no one you look up to is better than you are i'm riding in the front seat of a train car listening to songs on my ipod that will hype me up to take you on, or take you down but it's somewhere between track 6 and 7 that i realise that when i get up to heaven i'm gonna make you cry without lifting a finger
