  • I can't get them up
    I can't get them up
    I can't get them up At all
    Hey ho let go

    Good morning killer king you're a star
    That's gorgeous hold it right where you are
    The weathers kinda lousy today
    So what oh what oh what'll we play'

    Stratocaster strapped to your back
    It's semi-automatic like dads
    He taught you how to pause and reset
    But that's about as far as you get

    So what's the use of going outside'
    It's so depressing when people die in real life
    I'd rather pick up right where we left
    Making out to faces of death
    Making out to faces of death

    And I could save you baby But it isn't worth my time
    And I could make you chase me for a little price is right

    It's a hit but are you actually sure'
    The targets in the crowd are a blur
    People screaming just like they should
    But you don't even know if you're good
    You don't even know if you're good

    So tie them up and feed them the sand
    Ha! nigga! try hard to tell us using your hands
    A pictures worth a million words
    And that way nobody gets hurt
    And that way nobody gets hurt

    And I could save you baby but it isn't worth my time
    And I could make you chase me for a little price is right

    Woo-ah-oo
    Woo-ooh-ah-oo
    Woo-ah 'ooh ah ohh ah oo

    You're my guitar hero
    You're my guitar hero
    You're my guitar hero
    You're my guitar hero

    X marks the box in the hole in the ground that goes off at a breath
    So careful don't make a sound
    X marks the box in the hole in your head that you dug for yourself
    Now lie in it

    Shut up about all of that negative shit
    You wanted to make it and now that you're in
    You shut your eyes and flip the cassette
    And that's about the time that they hit
    And that's about the time that they hit

    What the fuck is up with this shit'
    It's certainly not worth getting upset
    His hands are gone and most of his head
    And just when he was getting so good
    Just when he was getting so good

    And I could save you baby but it isn't worth my time
    'Cause even if I saved you there's a million more in line

    Woo-ah-oo
    Woo-ooh-ah-oo
    Woo-ah 'ooh ah ohh ah oo
    You're my guitar hero
    You're my guitar hero
    You're my guitar hero
    You're my guitar hero Writer/s: Amanda Palmer

  • Cat from CtI thought this was about how people illegally download music making it unvaluable to learn how to play/ how all music now is the same and not different, like the line "And I could save you baby but it isn't worth my time, Cause even if I saved you there's a million more in line" and several more like it, but that's the most easy to get one, and the lines before that one too.
