The Rentals – Elon Musk is making me sad (Audio)

Lyrics to “Elon Musk is making me sad” performed by The Rentals

Let me tell you a tale about a rivalry
Grab an Eagle Number Two and keep the score
There were these two young boys
That came from average broken homes
With all the luxuries the middle class affords
Oh, Lord..

Elon’s making me so sad cause..
I calculated the math of our birthdates
And I had a head start out of the start gate
2 years plus 86 days, but that all went to waste

Oh, Elon you’re making me so sad cause..
The race that I wanted to have was not much of a race
And I tried, love, and for a moment I thrived, love
But could not keep my stride up to keep pace

But for a second, there’s no question
I had the lead in ninety-five
I mismanaged my advantage
Like a rocket ship he blasted by
To incredible heights, incredible heights

In nineteen eighty-two, on Christmas day
Santa gave us each a brand-new Commodore
I used mine to make fake I.D.’s and buy beer in junior high
While my foe studied every bit of that 8bit whore
Are you keeping score..

Elon’s making me so sad cause..
I calculated the math of our birthdates
And I had a head start out of the start gate
2 years plus 86 days, but that all went to waste

Oh, Elon you’re making me so sad cause..
The race that I wanted to have was not much of a race
And I tried, love, and for a moment I thrived, love
But could not keep my stride up to keep pace

But for a second, there’s no question
I had the lead in ninety-five
I mismanaged my advantage
Like a rocket ship he blasted by
To incredible heights

When it’s time to say goodbye
What will they write on my tombstone
Just that last little line from the Happy Days Video
Not so good, Jonze

Hey, Elon.. I don’t know what I have become
I need someone to help change my fate

I think you can save me
Do you think you can save me
Do you have the power to help me escape

Oh, Elon.. let me be the first one
Of your new civilization to be saved
Yes, I’ll try, love, I swear to you I can thrive, love
This time I’ll keep my stride up and keep pace
Only you can change my Q-score
Make me the first one out of that door
First boots out on the Martian Floor to proclaim
Oh, that Elon, sent me all the way
Son, a hundred thirty-nine million miles away

Elon, send me away, send me away
Elon, send me away
Elon, tell me I’m saved, tell me I’m saved
Elon, tell me I’m saved
Elon, tell me I’m saved, tell me I’m saved
Elon, tell me I’m saved

You have the power to save, you have the power to save me
You have the power to save, you have the power to save me

And then I will say, I went to Mars and won the race
Yeah, I will say, I took first-place
Oh, I rode that Old Heart of Gold the whole way
And in the end, hey, I won the race

Oh, oh, Elon, let me win the race, win the race
Oh, Elon, let me take first place
Elon, tell me I am saved, I am saved
Elon tell me I am saved
You have the power to save
You have the power to save me
Elon, tell me I am saved
You have the power to save…
