The Lyrics

For those wondering, yes, I am a college student releasing some finals-week angst.
Massage my head
Tell myself to just keep studyin'
This test depends on my cognition
Writin', sleepin', want to overcome the strife
It's a late hour
And my temple is throbin'
I hear my heart beats
And the bed and pillow callin'
For students like me who want to remain sane and alive

Stayin' sane and alive
Is impossible I'm thinkin'
It's amazing that my
Head isn't explodin'
From the learnin'
My eyes are going blind
From this final essay I have to edit
These tests make me feel like
I'm falling in a bottomless pit

Sane and alive, what an impossible notion
I just want to cry
My legs have gone hours without motion
Need to go to bed
But during finals week that is a sin
I'll kill someone if I don't get some caffeine!
Ahhhhhhhhhh.

I need to feel the steam
From a long hot shower
All this finals prep
Makes me feel so much crappier
But I can't take a break so it doesn't matter anyway

Attempting to keep afloat
Don't know where this work ends
I hope and I pray
There's enough ink in my pen
And when the printer starts to churn
My paper comes out the right way

Stayin' sane and alive
Is impossible I'm thinkin'
It's amazing that my
Head isn't explodin'
From the learnin'
My eyes are going blind
From this final essay I have to edit
These tests make me feel like
I'm falling in a bottomless pit

Sane and alive, I can hopefully look forward to
Cause now I want to take a knife
And hurt whoever made this paper due
If I forget to add my name
I swear I will throw a fit
Right now I hate my life
Can someone please hit me with a mallet?

Stayin' sane and alive
Is impossible I'm thinkin'
It's amazing that my
Head isn't explodin'
From the learnin'
My eyes are going blind
From this final essay I have to edit
These tests make me feel like
I'm falling in a bottomless pit

Sane and alive, I can hopefully look forward to
Cause now I want to take a knife
And hurt whoever made this paper due
If I forget to add my name
I swear I will throw a fit
Right now I hate my life
Can someone please hit me with a mallet?
