about

This is an ode to all those awesome TV shows with bad episodes and awesome bands with bad songs.

lyrics

Just when I think
I have found a perfect TV show
“Gosh, does this stink!”
My honest lips let these words flow
I come to terms
With the fact this show opened up
A can of worms
And poured them right into my cup

CHORUS:
How could I have failed in my quest for perfection?
How could such a work as this turn the wrong direction?
Sometimes we strike gold, but it still has its impurities
And I just found a bad one; help me get it out of my mind, please

I found this band
Their music really psychs me out
But I can’t stand
What one of their songs is all about
I love this flick
Except for this one nasty scene
I get so sick
Like I’ve been drinking Listerine

CHORUS

‘Til now such beauty they have displayed
I can’t believe I’ve been betrayed
How could they make something as bad as this?
I’m just a notch or two short of bliss
And it’s killing me!

Like a seed in a seedless grape
Like an ugly gob on a freshly painted wall
There are horrors that nobody can escape
What once was perfect is not perfect at all

Pardon me if I express a prideful inflection
But I clearly see my mind has lost its protection
It feels like my brain needs an air filter change or has fleas
‘Cause I just found a bad one; help me get it out of my mind, please
