Sweet Road


Are you waiting for me at the end of the airport?
I’m off buying our tickets, adoring hibernation
But I’m feeling impatient, we were late in departing
And the smell of pajamas es what made me feel frivol
There are minutes for sleeping but we didn't have minutes to spare
So you're feeling sleepy

Sympathize with the retard being held by his mother
She's got spit in her napkin and she's pushing him that way
Like the stench to the men's room, and it's making you nauseous
Where the hell have I got to?

There's a boy who's a Krishna and he thinks you look pretty
Well he's eying your stockings, he's got books to help you with your life
But there's no need to worry, this is just a vacation
It’s not permanent leaving

Every kid gets excited when his parents are yelling
'Cause they ordered a Lincoln and they received a compact
And there's fat nuns and tenors who are blocking departure
Till I'm birthed from their vulvas and I kiss you and hug you
You remember our forfeits and you shout at the platform,
"Here we come, mister airplane"

Please, please, please, please, try, try, try to enjoy your routes

Have some fun
