lyrics

It wasn't trolling; I rolled bowling emojis into the gutters of browsers
But my best body English could not make them mean what I meant
Like a boarding school bully pulling down trousers
They said I secretly just wanted hugs, or the online equivalent

But I'm neither maudlin hobgoblin, sad spammer, nor lurking skulker;
No alien-ranting Raelian; no slinger of Kennedy conspiracies
I'm a binary Luther, I nail theses to the comment threads and protect my head from the vultures
I type John 8:32 and the digital storm clouds gather over me

So I shift six, make a circumflex umbrella
Tell the sky guy to take a high dive off a low board
The rain lashes back in black backslashes,
But I'm a backsplash and drops bounce like balls on the walls of a squash court

It's too late for the haters to learn later is better than never
So don't say, come doomsday, I didn't say it was so
If you hear giggling mingling with the storms of the nuclear weather
That's just the sound of me down in my bunker ROTFLMAO
