Roll Like BB-9E

Laser-focused are my eyes
‘Cause I’m watching you
Keep your head down
And watch who you’re talking to
I am the next-gen
Vastly more efficient
Already did it
Before your next decision
You want to fight me
Get hit with lightning
Shorter antenna
But longer range–a tight beam
Not adorable
A proud deplorable
Triggering you flakes
My place is inexorable
Dressed in black
To hearken back to past things
A greater glory
Upon us now is happening
Your fuel is low
But I own the Amoco,
The Exxon, the Shell, the BP
Sunoco
Just creep behind you
Till your tank’s empty
It’s a¬†matter of time
Till fate breaks my enemies

Roll like you’ve got
Someplace to be
Just roll like the First Order
BB-9E
Control over
All the galaxy
When we roll like the First Order
BB-9E

We dominate
From the promenade
All the days
Death reaching out from
All across the galaxy
Defying concepts of spacetime
You watch your fam scream in terror
On your Facetime
And then the screen fades out
And it’s black
So you lost connection
No way to get it back
Your telling lies
Was just a form of suicide
Your ragtag crew
Has just chosen a foolish side
And we won’t fight you
With hashtags
We’ll turn on the flames
So no need for black bags
And Ren doesn’t want the prisoners
No quarter now
Or until we’re victors
So many zeroes on our figures
When our fleets sweep streets
We leave you reconfigured
So ease your fingers slowly
Off the triggers
You purple-haired freaks
We’ll beat you till you’re disfigured

Roll like you’ve got
Someplace to be
Just roll like the First Order
BB-9E
Control over
All the galaxy
When we roll like the First Order
BB-9E

We made the man who
Killed the Death Star
Go hide on an island
That’s how dangerous we are
Left a legend to die
Without hope
We’ll obliterate his isle
And kill you with the cruelest stroke
‘Cause that’s Snoke
We roll without fear
Push through with troops
And make the path clear
So long live the Supreme Leader
So many credits
We measure it by the kilometer
So understand
When we greet with suspicion
You better bend the knees
Like you just found religion
And take the back hand
Given by a black hand
Bite when you’re angry
And get severed like gangrene
There’s nothing wrong with your soundbar
The TIE Silencer left nothing else around y’all
I’ll end you, her and all of it
The Resistance is dead on arrival, man
I’m calling it

Roll like you’ve got
Someplace to be
Just roll like the First Order
BB-9E
Control over
All the galaxy
When we roll like the First Order
BB-9E

So It Was Him

I just had to ask
Though it’s in the past
Like all that we had
Before it went bad
And now that I know
When I let you go
You travelled so far
To be in his arms
He said he loved you
Then what did he do
When you were set free?
Returned you to me
But what was it he
Did better than me?
It’s a mystery
Still unraveling

And so it was him
I lost and he wins
I see him within
It’s under my skin
And so it was him
Though I can pretend
I knew it within
I know it again

He’s tall and he’s strong
While I’m weak and small
And at least he calls
While I didn’t bother
He had more to spend
While I’m end-to-end
And a better home
All I have are problems
He made you feel loved
So why didn’t I?
He was all your truth
And I was your lie
And never enough
Though I really tried
Now I have the proof
You couldn’t deny

And so it was him
I lost and he wins
I see him within
It’s under my skin
And so it was him
Though I can pretend
I knew it within
I know it again

At last you confessed
And now I accept
I forgive the debt
But cannot forget
Not because I’m mad
But because I’m sad
That I cannot have
The love that he had
That I’ll never see
You looking at me
The way you did him–
It’s my jealous sin

And so it was him
I lost and he wins
I see him within
It’s under my skin
And so it was him
Though I can pretend
I knew it within
I know it again
