about

Okay, okay. We were born in the '90s, so we're '90s kids only in the technical sense. But the dial-up noise still haunts our dreams at night, so that makes it okay for us to write a song about it.

lyrics

I can't stop playing video games
Or get myself up off the couch
I wish that I could find a way
To drag my bones out of this house

I just sit and rot in my own stink
I can't even think anymore
Bags of chips on the floor
And sodas piling up behind me

I sit here in my apathy
And wait for someone to rescue me
Get me out, I need saving
And no one is coming

And mom's on the phone so I can't watch porn
'Cause the goddamn dial-up is so slow
I haven't had a meal in days
I'm fucking wasting away

I sit here in my apathy
And wait for someone to rescue me

So wake me up
Send for help
SOS
Straight from hell
I'm devouring myself
Can't you tell?
But I don't sleep, I don't sleep
I don't sleep, I don't sleep

I should probably get a job but I don't wanna conform
Mom's pulling out her hair, she don't want this anymore
And I sit here in my apathy
And wait for someone to rescue me

Flannel shirts and highlight knots
Smudged mascara, here I rot
Making out to TV static
The lack of caring here is magic
