Liner Notes

This one started with lyrics first, a new approach for me. I needed to express frustration with a coworker... [sigh] Cool, I feel better now!

Chords are G-D-C in the verses and A-C-G-D in the bridge / chorus.

Lyrics

Get that guy off stage

Yeah you better get the hook
Else I'll bring my rope

To finish off that crook


His constant cynicism

Is thrashing all our hope
It's been years since anything useful 

Came from that fucking dope


Get your head on straight,

‘cuz we can't do this alone.
Stop spreading all your hate

Or just walk your bitch-ass home!



I don't know if it's burn out

Or frustration through the years
Your heart seems filled with venom

You no longer seem to care


You used to be a hero
A legend in your day
Now you’re just a fucking zero
And you’re standing in our way!

The stress gets to us all

Yeah I know that it gets tough
But there comes a time

When you shake that bullshit off

Get your head on straight,

‘cuz we can't do this alone.

Stop spreading all your hate

Or just walk your bitch-ass home!



[instrumental break]

Get your head on straight,

‘cuz we can't do this alone.
Stop spreading all your hate

Or just walk your bitch-ass home

You may have valid points

But no one's keeping score

I've tried my best to help you

Now I'm showing you the door
