Faster than This

from by Toodles & the Hectic Pity



This song is dedicated to Tigger, the biggest cat in the world (RIP). He lived fast and died old. If he were still with us, he'd be inhaling coffee by the gallon, drinking Sanny Miggs, and calling in sick every single day.

We should've called this song "Toodles but every time they say faster than this it speeds up." But we didn't.


Two cups of coffee on an empty stomach.
Four pints of beer on an empty mind.
Because it makes me shake and it makes me nervous,
makes me vomit but it'll make me smile.

And it goes faster than this.

Do you remember the day they told you you were worthless?
Do you remember asking why?
They painted your future with a single purpose:
sing their fears and scream their sighs.

And as soon as you were born here you'd come back wasting.
Wasting all of our precious time.
But I don't put my self-worth in the hands of people who don't put respect in mine.
