stale popcorn

from the garages suck by the garages



why’d you have to wake me up?
i've got an empty coffee cup
and now you say we have to play?
can’t we sleep for one more day?

i’ll do what i can, but i need rest
i’ll give it my all, but not my best
and frankly i don’t think we’re gonna win

we’re gonna lose
yeah we’re gonna lose and that’s okay
because at least we get experience, and we get a chance to play
and when it’s time to make concessions
to calm the coming storm
at least we won’t be hungry while we’re eating stale popcorn

so many books i wanted to read
but I’ve barely read the first
so many friends i meant to catch up with
but I didn’t, i’m the worst

I couldn’t sleep, I barely napped
i feel tired, and i still feel trapped
but, hey, i guess we’re doing this again

we’re gonna lose
yeah we’re gonna lose and that’s alright
and they’ve even scheduled breaks for us since we don’t sleep at ight
and if we have to sell our peanuts
to keep our pockets warm
at least we won’t be hungry because we’re eating stale popcorn

e’re gonna lose
yeah we’re gonna lose but we’ll be fine
now they’ve fully stocked the brand-new shop and we don’t have to ait in line
so thee’s no need to worry
and no need to be forlorn
there’s nothing more delicious than a feast of stale popcorn

we’re gonna lose
yeah we’re gonna lose and that’s okay
and if we win the playoffs, we’ll lose again some day
but we don’t need your pity
don’t look at us with scorn
we’ve got everything we need in a bag of stale popcorn
