i'm gonna get a proverbial push-broom and sweep up all this shit aquilius started sweeping a time machine, an atom bomb split with all the sundials that surround me a cacophony of metronomes got get away from these complications got to disconnect all the connections may the gods damn the man who came up with these plans i'll do whatever i can but may the gods damn that goddamn man aquilius was right don't need no new fangled device to organize my life to tell me the difference between day and night beyond 2000 has shown me what's way out on the cutting edge but i know it's all baloney cause the stuff i have now is phoney from ancient rome, to a new century so much cash that could potentially build the planet has actually tied and trapped us so conveniently may the gods damn the man who came up with these plans i'll do whatever i can but may the gods damn that goddamn man aquilius was right don't need no new fangled device to organize my life to tell me the difference between black and white
