The Lyrics

Part of my Pop Danthology 2012 self-challenge. Get what this dude is angry about? If you guessed high taxes, congratulations! You can read!
I don't ge-et thi-is, man, can't pa-ay thi-is high ta-ax
I have never had that damn mu-uch
Money in the bank, so this sucks, can't pa-a-ay
I could spe-ecula-ate, oh
About the reason why this just shot u-up
But I'm too mad, can't think straight
About this high tax, high ta-ax

I just don't ge-et how it's so hi-igh now
Haven't go-one out my way to-o climb out
O-Of my cla-ass now, so my bill shou-ould stay do-own
Explain to me-e how this makes sense

This is me-essed u-up, man, explai-ain thi-is high ta-ax
I've got tremors, this is so du-umb
Wanna rip this damn paper up, can't pa-a-ay
Each word i-is insa-ane, oh
Confusin' as shit, at least that adds u-up
But it's still crap, really lame
I hate this high tax, high ta-ax

I've checked my list of dependants, none
Of them have skipped out on me, still stuck
I haven't missed any boxes, this is dumb
It just isn't fa-are, not fa-are, it's ba-alls (ah-ah)
So ba-alls (ah-ah)
Real ba-alls (ah-ah)
Plain ba-alls (ah-ah)

I don't u-unde-erstand this stu-upi-id high ta-ax
But I'll never quit, I won't fa-all
Not unless I get proof it's all oka-a-ay
But I be-et "no wa-ay", oh
I'm scratchin' my head, this whole thing is nu-uts
Made my point, man: I can't pay
This way-too-high tax, high ta-ax

I-I've trie-ied professional peeps
To work out this no-onsense for me
Either turned me do-own outright
O-Or ju-ust trie-ied to feed me more damn lie-ie-ies
Te-ellin' me-e ho-ow for about si-ix yea-ears no-o-o-o-ow
I-I haven't paid a-a cent, bu-ut tha-at doe-oesn't

Ma-atte-er, man, it's sti-ill a-a high ta-ax
It's the principle of it a-all
I reject any high bills, all so la-a-ame
No, don't e-educa-ate, oh
About that "law" bullshit, I'm not that du-umb
Still won't pay jack, nope, won't pay
This stupid high tax, high ta-ax

Weird thought: would an RPG character with a bajillion points in Evasion be able to avoid paying the toll? Because tax evasion? Eh? Eh?
