Way Down Here, by Jeremy A. Cook
Brené Brown's Hornpipe, by Jeremy A. Cook

lyrics

Verse
The new boss didn’t like my attitude.
I could have been nicer but she was an old prude.
She wrote me up and fired me to win our little feud,
And I sucked down pogey for the last half-year.
I feel like nothing from doing nothing.
I’m handing out random resumes to start my new career ‘cause

Chorus
I can’t do nothing while I’m way down here.
I can’t do nothing while I’m way down here.
I’ll climb above the pain and the shame and the fear
‘Cause I can’t do nothing while I’m way down here.

Verse
I gained thirty pounds since I lost my job.
Eating is too easy as an unemployed slob.
I grew out all my hair and I grew into a blob.
My apartment grew a stinky atmosphere.
I feel like nothing from doing nothing.
Today I’m hitting the track and then I’m trimming my hair and beard ‘cause

Chorus

Verse
I started doing anything to numb the pain.
Booze and weed and video games became my bane.
I’m stupid and forgetful and I’m verging on insane
In a cloud of fantasy and dope and beer.
I feel like nothing from doing nothing.
I’m pouring out all the alcohol to get my spirit clear ‘cause

Chorus

Verse
In the midst of the pain I lost my date.
She packed it up and left me to my blame and hate.
No-one wants a parasite that’s drunk and overweight.
It was one last kicker to my beat-up rear.
I feel like nothing from doing nothing.
But no-one’s coming to save me so I’m clearing my head and shedding the pounds and getting a job and winning a girl and finding my new frontier! ‘Cause…

Chorus
