The Lyrics

T’s-L5 are slumpin’ down (talkin’ ’bout degeneration)
Smile is slumpin’ to a frown (talkin’ not ’bout jubilation)
Once 6-foot-5, brash and bold (walkin’ tall, my avocation)
Now 5’ 5”—“You’re short!” I’m told (talk like that prompts irritation)

This is degeneration,
this is degeneration, wasting.

I watch those discs fade away (it’s causing me much frustration)
On MRI, in shades of gray (resonance, not radiation)
F**king phospholipids are on vacation! (need miracle medication!)
So I’m squawking about degeneration (mocking my degeneration)

This is degeneration,
this is degeneration, wasting.

I feel those discs fade away (wishing for regeneration)
Basketball I no longer play (court’s no longer my play station)
Situation’s causing a big vexation (I am filled with perturbation)
not walking tall ’cause of degeneration (sometimes I crawl, near prostration)

This is degeneration,
this is degeneration, wasting.

T’s-L5 are crumblin’ down (product of degeneration)
as I wander through the town (“walkin’ small,” my evocation)
Once 6-foot-5, brash and bold (“tall” was my instantiation)
Short, so by big guys I’m rolled (talkin’ ’bout victimization)

There’s no regeneration,
there’s no regeneration hast’ning.
