Sorry (lyrics by Danny Elfman)

I’m So Sorry


There isn’t time – for revolution
There isn’t time – to evolutionize or hide
Those things most precious – Our most precious
Things that got erased, corrupted, infiltrated
I’m so sorry – I’m so sorry

I’m gonna try, I’m gonna try
To get away from your compelling
Mist of lies and misconceptions
No protection, no escape
Where I will never have to see your fucking face
You suffocate me

I can’t breathe while you’re alive
I can’t breathe while you’re alive
You suffocate, you suffocate
And I’m so sorry that I didn’t die
Or just evaporate into a toxic cloud

It’s gonna break – it’s gotta break,
It’s made of glass, it’s gonna break
And all the hate that you collected
And infused into protected piles of shit
Glass eyed devotees will flock to your gates
Your house is on fire — your house is on fire

Pull it forward – pull it back
Your eyes are empty, cold and black
We gotta break it, we gotta break it
We gotta break that fucking jack whip
on a broken hip – my life is a joke if I can’t even breathe.

Sorry you exist because you suck the fucking air out of my lungs
I am not afraid to die – still alive, still alive
And I won’t let you bury me

“Weird Al” Yankovic (2016)

Straight Outta Lynwood is the twelfth studio album by “Weird Al” Yankovic, released on September 26, 2006. It was the sixth studio album self-produced by Yankovic. The musical styles on the album are built around parodies and pastiches of pop and rock music of the mid-2000s. The album’s lead single, White & Nerdy, is a parody of Chamillionaire’s hit single Ridin’. The single peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100; Canadian Idiot, a parody of Green Day’s American Idiot, also charted, peaking at number 82. The album contains three further parodies, based on Confessions Part II by Usher, Do I Make You Proud by Taylor Hicks, and Trapped in the Closet by R. Kelly. The other half of the album is original material, containing many “style parodies”—musical imitations of existing artists, such as Brian Wilson, Rage Against the Machine, Sparks, animated musical specials, Cake, and 1980s charity songs.
