Shag Stands Straight


Early morning your wings disintegrate
Your blackened eyes feeling the heavy weight
No one will care you cleaned the speaker’s grate
Or managed to have the shag stand straight

Cranking it up turns on other speakers
By this time you’re putting on your sneakers
Running away from the squally squeakers
Will help you now to find other seekers

All this around me my friend Shabu’s cool
Shabu helps me go ahead and skip school
Go to the hall and shoot some awesome pool
Later they found you face down in a stool
