The Lyrics

I totally forgot about this one - I left it in an almost done state some months ago. Based on a true story of a modem downstairs in my house (presumably my stepdad's) that seriously kept trying to connect to something every couple minutes, all night.
Modem beeping in the dead of night
Damn that broken thing, I hope it dies
Through the night,
Can't connect, but every other minute it'd try

Modem beeping in the dead of night
See my sunken eyes - I couldn't sleep
Through the night
It just kept on waiting for the phone line to be free

Modem, why?
Modem, why?
Why must your noise keep me up all night?

Modem, why?
Modem, die!
Why must your noise keep me up all night?

[screeching modem noises]

Modem beeping in the dead of night
Damn that broken thing, I hope it fries
Through the night,
It just kept on waiting for a server to reply
It just kept on waiting for a server to reply
And I kept on wishing it would meet with its demise

[modem noises get louder]
[shotgun blast, followed by cessation of noises]
