1. Relentless

From the recording Relentless

I wrote this song in 2006.  I was one of the chaperones on a school trip.  We went to Six Flags Over Georgia, which is an amusement park.  I didn't feel very well and I found a place to sit down and just watch the crowd go by.  It was a fascinating place to people watch.  I had a paper and pencil in my purse.  I got them out and started writing.

Relentless, relentless, the drivel that I speak
Relentless, relentless, the drivel that I think
Relentless, relentless, the treadmill that I'm on
Relentless, relentless, no consciousness beyond
Entertainment and distraction
Roller coasters and ipods
Bloated bellies overflowing
Road to Hell is very broad
Rats that win the rat race
Still wear whiskers and have claws
They're just the sleekest, fattest rats
Cause to the top they've gnawed
They think they live in Happy Land
They look down from their peaks
But rodent minds don't understand
It's just another heap
Find your perfect place, you rats
Find it in the mall
Masters of the Universe
You can have it all
Cellphones, flip lops, droopy pants
Tattoos and Titan jerseys
Fiddle Nero, fiddle on
The whole world can't be burning
