I gotta spend the day at the record store
'Cause it's the only place I can go to ignore
What I got
And listen to some punk rock
I don't have the cash for chemotherapy
But I got enough for the HOFX color EP
I know one day I'll meet Fatty and we're gonna be bros
If I show up to enough Fat Wreck Chords shows
And I'll tell him that I'm dying
And I'm desperately trying
To see a dominatrix with reasonable rates
Should I fly to Sanctuary or just drive through the gates of East Oakland ?
I said: "That's kind of a random thing to say, ya hey!"
He said: "I'm Brad, I don't have very long
There's something very wrong
So I thought that you could maybe
Write a song about me."
I said: "Seriously?"
"I'm uninsured and it's unstoppable
The doctor told me it's inoperable
'Cause my GoFundMe page only raised 50 bucks."
I think I gotta go
He told me the cancer was in his brain
So I invite him over to do some cocaine
With me - 'cause he never tried drugs before
I offered him a line and he said he's not sure
I said: "Didn't you just tell me that there isn't a cure?
So why not try
Some ecstasy and coke
If you're gonna croak!?
Some DMT and K
Will make you feel okay
Just for one night
You might feel like everything is gonna be all right."
Then he texted me every day
Until I finally said: "Okay
I'll write a song about you being sick
But like your life, it's gonna end too quick."
