Marsyas Versus Apollo

lyrics

I saw your eyes,
and yeah I guess,
that they are brighter than mine
I guess your trick
was knowing how to turn piss into wine

so how much should I pay for this?

tell me again where I went wrong
tell me again how to rewrite the song
how every note that I played was wrong

but nobody wants to dance with the dead
when there are egos here that need to be fed
on the stage we both bled
but I guess that didn’t matter much!

sink or swim
as you mouth words from the side of the stage
the sycophants?
they’re in the back still trying to get laid

so how much should I charge for this?

tell me again where I went wrong
tell me again how to rewrite the song
oh where do I belong?

but nobody wants to dance with the dead
when there are egos here that need to be fed
on the stage we both bled
but I guess that didn’t matter much!

so move your crowd
show me where it is at
but as you retire backstage
I hope you remember that:

you
are
fucking
nothing
with
out
ME

here come your punishers
