about

WARNING: The following tracks have explicit language:
-Compile Time
-Escape From The Grumps [has a LOT of it]
-Ready
-Against Us!
-And the hidden track, which you have to download the album to listen to.
I really hate it when a song has [Explicit] in its title, so I'm putting this warning here instead.

Here it is! My first full album. I don't really have too much to say about it besides what's in the title and each song's individual description. I will say, it's meant to be a time capsule of all the things that were relevant in my life during college. Happy listening!

Track Name: Compile Time
He-he-hey, that's right, it's time to do some mother fuckin' programming

You finished all your code
But now it has to load
So you bust out a rhyme
Baby, it's compile time

Just like that funny comic that goes x k c d
It takes forever to read through man, do you feel me?
It would be nice if you coouuld have-a-little breaaak but,
Girl, it's full of syntax errors, and you're a pain glut

Maybe there's a language, somewhere out there
That isn't such a huge... burden to bear
Maybe it doesn't even need to compile
While those nerds are waiting, you're working all the while!

"And now for something completely different."

That's right
You all saw this co-ming
It's time to fight
Immutable strings
Interpreted
Programming language
Virtual machine
It's name is Python

The problem with Python is it's too slow
You'll still get to swordfight before you see it go
I'm so bored waiting, I think I'll go buy a guava
But, hey, at least it's better than Java

Oftentimes, the most popular thing
Is also the worst one of us
Java's about as fast as a snail, zing!
And as easy to program as C++

It's times like these when you look at other choices
And for this one, I've got a Scheme...
It's based on LISP, and it's so confusing,
You'll be like, "Zhu Li! Do the, uh... the thing!"

I mentioned it before, but this one's easier than Scheme
C++ really is the king
It's efficient, flexible; it puts on airs
And you won't get THAT many runtime errors

C++ Master Race

See, because, normally, you'd say "PC Master Race," or, you know, Nazis. But, this is C++. So... you gotta differentiate from the pack, you know? You know? *sigh* You don't know.
Track Name: TBH
Eh, honestly, if I had redone this song now, at the end of college, after trying out Haskell... The lyrics would be totally different. I guess... *I* don't know.
Track Name: Escape From The Grumps
Hey
We're playing Sonic '06
Oh no
OH NOOOOOO

Rollin' around at the speed of sound
Got this game to beat, gotta get through these glitches
But where's the next stage; I've checked everywhere
I wish Soleanna had one way to find out
Only gray buildings ahead
I might as well just go in circles instead
And what's with these realistic faces?
At least they aren't octopuses (octopus face)

It's no use; it's no use
If we could finish it would be great great great (GREATGREATGREAT)
But I just glitched through a wall
It's no use; it's no use
But we promised our lovelies that we would do it
We'll make it through, prove it to you

Follow us!

Rollin' around at the speed of sideways?
I swear it's the game; I did not mean to do that!
Just give the controller to me
You always die quickly; show us the proof, Barry
*trainwreck sounds*
That is what you are right now

It's no use; it's no use
If we could finish it would be great great great (GREATGREATGREAT)
But I just glitched through a wall
It's no use; it's no use
But we promised our lovelies that we would do it
We'll make it through, prove it to you

Follow us!

*beautiful little moment*

Rollin' around at the speed of diagonal?
We're both dead inside, but we keep pushing for you
The tension in here just keeps going up
Some have speculated that we'll kill each other
This game just can't be finished
This series is why we had our first speed-ups
Arin's making embarrassing groans
Barry look at this; you're fired

It's no use; it's no use
If we could finish it would be great great great (GREATGREATGREAT)
But I just glitched through a wall
It's no use; it's no use
But we promised our lovelies that we would do it
We'd make it through except Jon left

Now we can't!
(IT'S NO FUCKIN' USE!)
'Cause Jon left!
(AAAAHAHA)

Not to say that Danny is bad
I love Dan!
and bought all the Ninja Sex Party albums and Starbomb and it's great and wow Brian is a professor and makes good music too my favorite is No Reason Boner yeahhhh

*more beautiful little moment*
Track Name: Ready
I love you
But I'm feeling blue
I'm not ready for this
So many
Plans left unfinished
Shit

I was once lost
Awful friends, awful boss
But when we met
I saw a future yet
Life was looking up
It was alright, alright
But what we have now, is a blight

I can't leave you
I can't leave this
I don't want to
I'm not allowed to

This is almost death
For me, in a way
I just wish I had time
To have my own say
I'm sorry and I
I hope you are, too
This is hell for me
But we can see it through

I won't betray you, I swear
I won't betray you
I won't betray you, I swear
This won't go straight to hell

Don't worry, I'm
Completely fine
Don't worry, I'm
Completely fine
Track Name: Against Us!
This fuckin' country, man
This fuckin' world, man

I'm just trying to live my life
But I got an Orange Man causing us extra strife
Every day it's something new
Over the cuckoo's nest is where he flew
Muslim, Latino, African, and Asian
Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, and Queer
Poor, worker, even white rich men
Nobody is safe besides those who bribe him
With his self-loathing, self-absorption,
And self-destructive narcissism
I'm sick to death of being constantly fucking sick of

The haves and the have-nots
The C.R.E.A.M. of the crop
Cash rules everything around us
And we all get thrown under the bus
How have so few people realized
That slavery still exists for you and me
It's just modern Feudalism, disguised
See, the root of all evil is MONEY

And the leaders of the world
Got everybody fighting
Words of nationalism are hurled
And everybody's biting
This mentality of us vs. them
Has got to stop, friend
Or else we're all gonna bigly lose
To the best, greatest, biggest, orange flooze

How are we supposed to make ends meet
When we got a culture of everyone being elite
How are we supposed to make ends meet
When we got a culture of everyone being elite
How are we supposed to make ends meet
When we got a culture of everyone being elite
How are we supposed to make ends meet
When we got a culture of everyone being elite

America was for sale half a century ago
And nobody cared enough to save it
Now we've got another round of Jim Crow
And a climate so bad you just wanna blaze it

I've got a personal story anyone could embody
I got hit by a car, and all could see
I was not at fault; that's the key
But the witness lied in the face of my plea
The perpetrator is rich, PhD and law degree
But a great lawyer and insurance couldn't get me any money
So I had to spend thousands on what should be free
Accident-induced bills and painful tooth surgery
But despite it all, I consider myself lucky
Because I came out of it healed and free
Despite growing up poor from at least age three
I barely had enough resources to stand tall like a tree

If a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it
You heard Jefferson, brothers and sisters
We're going to keep moving forward and fix our messes one-by-one
We're going to live our god damn lives, and if someone means to do us harm, they will not succeed if we stand together
Track Name: I Wanna Do It All
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all

When I'm watchin' all my favorite shows
I wonder what it's like to feel that glow
When you make something you're proud of
And show it to the world
And when I'm playin' games, havin' fun
Going through it on my own run
I want to make my own masterpiece
No matter how hard that it prob'ly will be

'Cause that's the price to do it all
I wanna do it all

Music, books, programs, vidya games
My tools of trade, how I play
And friends to help along the way
I may even get by someday
Renaissance man, jack of trades
But master of none, that's what they say
I say life's too long for that to be
And too short for me to doubt or worry

That's what it means to do it all
I wanna do it all
