Lyrics

attention, attention, attention span of a gnat
gone in two seconds flat
think you can make it through
one minute and forty-two
don’t want my fifteen minutes of fame
clicking more than twice is too much pain
could this be you

thirty-eight, thirty-nine, forty

think you can make it through
one minute and forty-two

I multi-task this rhyme
thinking of flasks of columbine
the sign on the door said
only those in bed can
enter to center their heads
divine intertwine of America Online
bred the overfed dissenter of the watershed
get up and walk around town
down with the talk of the setup
you know it ain’t true
that glue tainted snowshoe stepped in the snare
there’s no care with ash in the air
cans, oh Kansas bird
Ah Um
Ming dynasty wouldn’t exist
without us in the mind
the nexus of munificence
where would we be
stuck in Poughkeepsie
without Jack and Neal driving our minds
to the ultimate deal
what’s life’s meaning
does it have a meaning
besides pleasure, joy, and love
it’s all the same the misery and pain
drop it, then posit
are we all insane, inane, in flames

think you can make it through
one minute and forty-two (can you)
think you can make it through
one minute and forty-two (click more than twice)
think you can make it through
one minute and forty-two (is it too much pain)
think you can make it through
one minute and forty-two
