(I’m over time)
Welcome to my life (welcome)
Welcome to my life (welcome)
Welcome to my life where everybody wants to cipher
‘cause they boys told ‘em so
“Look, this is how you do it, you gotta fuckin’ do it slow then fast, slow then fast,

If this is you, you’re not alone
Girls flock like birds
When my name gets spit it echoes
I’ll stick to Velcro
This is Sage, don’t say I ain’t told you
Real problems with garden gnomes who talk shit
So pay me it
Makes me rich
But I done didn’t
When credits roll I’m heading for the exit hole
It’s about you, all about you
Fuck a fickle fan base, stuck a middle finger in they damn face
You’re best to drop out the school of hard knocks
I leave the party with a mass amount of assed-out demo tapes to butcher
Into – “do me a favor and play it on a big system though”
“Sure thing boss, I’ll get right on it”
Think he was so very special among the hundred thousand
It makes no sense, slow to speak – your logic’s fucked
Noise you do have toys like you stocked with Tonka Trunks
You’re not a lone, this world’s a rock of drones
With the “yeah, yeah . . . off the dome”
You’re not a lone, this world is stocked with clones
You best for sure lock your homes
You best for sure lock your homes
Beware the garden gnomes.
