about this table


Woo-woo, message board
Is this what you waited for?
All those lonely nights
Waiting for the songs I write

You'll never be as satisfied
As on the day I finally die

I'll give what you want
Even though it makes me gag
Quirky, personal
Songs sung by an emo fag

You'll never be as satisfied
As on the day I finally die
