The Lyrics

This song actually is about a real life experience I had to go through at my apartment recently. About last month from time of posting this. It didn't help that this occurred at around the same time as Earth Hour. No lights, No net, Yes problems. Enjoy the Lols as you glance into my life.
Watch Chromecast on my TV
But this is something, I don’t see
Buffering and then it froze
Starting my technology woes

So now I’m stuck, in a bind, a new way, to unwind
‘Cause I can’t, check online chats, don’t have dogs, or even cats
I’ve been off of the net
I’ve been off of the net, for a week

Now I’ve got, DVD’s
Tired of, these movies
Guess I’ll go, take a look
At Christmas Mark, Dice’s book

So now I’m stuck, in a bind, a new way, to unwind
Could have been more stable
Why did I, cut my cable?
I’ve been off of the net
I’ve been off of the net, for a week

(Guitar solo)

Blow off dust from radio
And with card games, reach a new low
Rooms upstairs, wires cut
Makes me want to kick, someone’s butt

So now I’m stuck, in a bind, a new way, to unwind
But could have been more stable
Why did I, cut my cable?
I’ve been off of the net
I’ve been off of the net
Yeah, I’ve been off of the net, for a week

I’ve been off of the net
I’ve been off of the net
Yeah, I’ve been off of the net, for a week

(Outro)
It took three ISP technicians to actually fix this problem. Since this involved going into another tenant's apartment, it requires 24 hr notice to the property management so that access is permitted. Did not know that the first time. Initially other people on my floor we're also complaining about losing the net. They we're able to fix their problems rather smoothly, but management did not catch on to a trend. Yes, I was lazy to notice and thought it was a network problem, not a building problem. The weather was not a factor either, it was just overcast, no storms. The wiring systems for these buildings must go vertically up and down by each floor, instead of horizontally per the same floor. When the landlord was preparing the room upstairs for new tenants, they cut the wrong cable out, which severed my internet. >:o On the plus side, I did get savings from my next bill from this incident. :)

You finally covered a song I'm familiar with; so now I can render an opinion -- 555 And BTW, I know who Mark Dice is … he's the guy who's best buds with Brian Stelter
