Shot at the Charts

Lyrics: Laurence - Music: Laurence & yeP!




I look at your face and I see sex, yes, 
Lurking just below the surface of your 
Tight jeans, teen rebellion
It's really quite exciting to be 
Right here on the business end

You scream - yes I know the feeling
You move - it's a beautiful sight
Downtown - but you're the only ones now
Big time - make it into the light

It's a shot at the pop charts  [shot at the charts]
Dose out the popular fare
You gotta start from the start  [start from the start]
Make it quick through the air

So strange...
It seems like only yesterday we
Jumped up on the tables 
And kicked it all around the place
We never thought for a moment
Potential to be realized
Every dog has its daze, but
Every contract has a bottom line

It's just a shot at the pop charts  [shot at the charts]
We're giving in for a while  [neeee-wop!]
No mystery or romance  [get in our pants]
Same if you walk the mile

You are the ones that make it possible to 
Stand here wailing, making crazy noises just like...

[brief musical interlude]

It's time to get our shit together now
We're climbing up the ladder of posterity
The contract says we've got another album
To unleash regardless of its mediocrity

We're here - made it to the stratosphere
Way up is where they want us to go
More more - Big Faddy's got the answer now
Sold out
You know what you got when you reach in the pot and you

It's a shot at the pop charts  [shot at the charts]
A toxic drip in your ear  [neeee-wop!]
In sycophantic stereo
Just what the pricks want to hear

I look at your face and I see dread, yes
Lurking just below the surface of your
Cream-cheese white complexion
Isn't very flattering to be 
Right here on the business end

You scream - yes I know the feeling
You run - though there's nowhere to hide from the 
Musak - if you wanna call it that
No shame - they just swallowed our pride.
Swallowed our pride, swallowed our pride
Swallowed our, swallowed our, swallowed our...
