lyrics

Once upon a time in Sneaky Falls
There was a little shrimp who wanted it all
But did he really need that?
He sure as hell believed that
He dreamt about a life of fortune and fame
Happiness and riches were one and the same
Years later at his desk job
He was feeling just a bit robbed
He said:
"Fuck this working 9 to 5
The more I punch this fucking clock the less I feel alive"
So he made a phone call to his partner in crime
Beef said:
"That's just straight up the breakdown of this life
You suck it up and lighten up this shakedown to survive
'Cause straight shrimpin', it don't pay the bills"

Time tells a different story
When the plot twist hits, you'll figure it out
Everybody loves a happy ending
And if you can't get with that man
Just get the fuck out

Once upon a time in Border City
A little shrimp starts searching for sounds so gritty
Wherever could he find them?
Who else wouldn't mind them?
He found himself a world of sweet escape
When popping in a fateful Art of Noise tape
Years later at his day gig
He was feeling pretty jaded
He said:
"Fuck this working for these guys
They haven't had a good idea ever in their lives
And this waste of my time is such a goddamned crime!"
That's just straight up the breakdown of this life
You suck it up and lighten up this shakedown to survive
'Cause straight shrimpin', it don't pay the bills

Time tells a different story
When the plot twist hits, we'll figure it out
Everybody loves a happy ending
And if you can't get with that man
Just get the fuck out
