Chukchansi’s Complacency for Beginners

from by Great Apes

lyrics

the ballpark has-beens
watch the Grizzlies play
idly cheering for false faith
in some better days

the game has been rigged
it’s set for defeat
they’ll bet on stacked odds
cuz’ they’re so minor league

you can try and you can dream
but it won’t do anything…
so keep calm and die
there’s rot dogs and piss beer
to lull out sure loss
the painkillers of commerce
or clutching a cross

swing for the grandstands
with no follow through
in the nosebleeds of life
settling is all they can do

you can try and you can dream
but it won’t do anything…
so keep calm and die

rise in revelry
for mediocrity
for blind complacency
let’s rally for decay
and when the eighth inning hits
we better call it quits
our team is always shit
oh what’s the point anyway?
