Under Deadline

(to the tune, mostly, of “Underground” by David Bowie.  I’m not even going to apologize, either.)

Warning: here be earworming.

No one can blame you
For walking away
Too much rejection
No plot injection
This life can be easy
It’s not always swell
Don’t tell me truth hurts, little girl
‘Cause it hurts like hell (echo)
But head down in the deadline (oh oh oh oh oh)
You’ll find something true (down in the deadline)
Head down in the deadline (oh oh oh oh oh)
A plot complete (oh oh oh oh)
A character beat, ah, ah
It only takes forever
Not long at all
Lost and lonely
Under deadline
Under deadline

Daddy, daddy, get me out of here (heard about a place today)
I, I’m under deadline (nothing never hurts again)
Heard about a place today (brain, get me out of here)
Where nothing never hurts again (dying by deadline)
Daddy, daddy, get me out of here (dying by deadline)
I, I’m under deadline (nothing never hurts again)
Sister, sister, please take me down (brain, get me out of here)
I, I’m under deadline (dying by deadline)
Brain, brain, get me out of here

No one can blame you
For walking away
Too much rejection
No plot injection
But head down in deadline (oh oh oh oh oh)
You’ll find something true (down underground)
Head down in the deadline (oh oh oh oh oh)
A plot complete (oh oh oh oh)
A character beat, ah, ah
It only takes forever
It’s only forever
It’s not long at all
Lost and lonely
We’re under deadline
Under deadline
