Background

"Sing My Blues Away" was in recorded in consideration for the aborted Ecce Homo album concept. The song became known to exist when it was played at listening parties in the early 2010s, leading fans to partially re-create the song from memory.

Lyrics

Sing My Blues Away #13

I went to the doctor, counselor, and proctor
All they did was waste my time
I'm a chronic case of partial mental break
But baby I think that's just fine
I'll soothe myself with diapason
Cauterize my soul (I don't even care)

All I need is my music
To help me make it through the day
Cast to hell all the psychobabble therapy
I can sing my blues away

Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away

All these ???
Scheming for my ???
Try to make me think I'm sick
Just because I crank my buds up really loud
Don't mean that I'm a psychotic
Take your drugs and knock yourself out
I'm gon' be just fine (I don't even care)

All I need is my music
To help me make it through the day
Cast to hell all the psychobabble therapy
I can sing my blues away

Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Just like yesterday
I can sing my blues away

All I need is my music
To help me make it through the day
Cast to hell all the psychobabble therapy
So I can sing those blues away

Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Just like yesterday
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
Sing your blues now

Sing My Blues Away #14

Everybody got their super power hiding deep within their beating heart
If there only was a damsel in distress I’d kiss her on a shooting star
The years are flying by without me
Sleeping on the job

Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Just like yesterday
I can sing my blues away

I’m as strong as Paul Bunyan I want to have some fun, I wanna kick some ass
Watch me walking through these hallways after school
I don’t even need a hall pass
Terrible fates might await me, I don’t even care

Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Just like yesterday
I can sing my blues away

Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Just like yesterday
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
Sing your blues now

Sing My Blues Away #15

Everybody got their super power hiding deep within their beating heart
If there only was a damsel in distress I'd kiss her on a shooting star
The years are flying by without me
Sleeping on the job

No more tripping through the nighttime
Dilly dallying all the day
Can you tell me how to make the secret rendezvous?
So I can sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away

I'm as strong as Paul Bunyan I want to have some fun, I want to kick some ass
Watch me walking through these hallways after school
I don't even need a hall pass
Terrible fates might await me, I don't even care

No more tripping through the nighttime
Dilly dallying all the day
Can you tell me how to make the secret rendezvous?
So I can sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Just like yesterday
I can sing my blues away

No more tripping through the nighttime
Dilly dallying all the day
Can you tell me how to make the secret rendezvous?
So I can sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Sing my blues away
Just like yesterday
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
I can sing my blues away (Sing your blues now)
Sing your blues now
