Elevator Song

from Elevator Song by Nora Nygard



I applied to college and I got in
they say that makes me special
cuz think of all the suckers who didn't

I wanted to go to school
go to school to be an artist
not become some unproductive shit
who's fucking heartless

no I don't mean like that
don't mean I got no romance
I just mean that I got no will
it's four in the morning
I'm hanging in an elevator
singing and standing fucking still

maybe I better go home
maybe probably tomorrow
there I got all that I need
I'll pack up my van
wave with a hand and leave

I think if I stick I'll fail
cuz I can't listen anymore
like, what's that guy saying?
what's that guy saying it for?

but I guess I'll ride out the semester
try and make a friend
I've got a guy down on the south end
got a couple of things to attend

I met a girl from Alaska
I asked her advice
she gave me some
she said,
"I was an artist,
a nurse,
an archaeologist,
a businessman
and now I'm a bum."
