lyrics

CHORUS:
Oh Mr. Abrams, will you please
stop torturing my memories?
Say hey hey, J.J., I'm on my knees,
stop shitting on my fantasies.

Your films are racing
with hyperactive pacing,
we barely see a face and then you
cut to space, it's bizarre like a dream.
Well I remember fiction
with meaning and conviction,
articulate depiction which is
missing from your repertoire, so it seems.
So while we're fuming,
go on and keep exhuming
the bodies of work upon whose shoulders
you made your means.
(Just add A.D.D.)
(Chorus)

(Instrumental)

(Chorus)

What is that fantastic glare?
Are there fireflies in the air?
Is it a stroke or some immortal's quickening?
A helicopter flying low?
A ghostly glow or UFO?
All I know is I can't see a goddamn thing!

(Instrumental)

So forget the lighting,
the incoherent writing…
it's like you're trying to hide behind
exciting BANG! BOOM!
like you're Michael Bay.
Don't wanna be a complainer,
but give me an explainer;
your story's like a strainer,
leaking everywhere through the holes anyway.
So while we're screaming,
be sure the film is teeming
with logos and brands so we
know how much you're getting paid.
(Can you see it in the back row? YES SIR!)
(Chorus x3)

Matthew Ebel Seattle, Washington

I call myself a piano rocker, but I’m really just kind of a goofball. I’ve been playing the piano since age 5, discovered electronic music at 12, and made this stuff my career in '99. Since then I’ve played the Grand Ole Opry, been quoted in Rolling Stone, and made a name for myself in new media. I’ve been playing piano rock full-time since 2007 and since then I’ve never looked back. ... more
