BIRTHDAY BOY

Once a year we celebrate with stupid hats and plastic plates the fact that I was able to make another trip around the sun.

And the whole clan gathers around and gifts and laughter do abound and we let out a joyful sound and sing that stupid song.

Happy birthday… now I’m one year older
Happy birthday… my life still isn’t over
Happy birthday… I did not accomplish much… but I didn't die this year so I guess that’s good enough.

So lets drink to my fading health and hope that I don’t remind myself my chance of finding fame and wealth decrease with ever year.

It feels like I’m doing laps and eating food and taking naps and hoping that someday perhaps my life will hold some cheer.

Happy birthday… what have I done that matters
Happy birthday… I’m starting to get fatter
Happy birthday… its down hill from now on… ill try not to remind myself my best years are all gone.

If cryogenics were all free then I could live like Walt Disney and live for all eternity inside a block of ice.

But instead my time is set this is the only life I get and though it hasn’t ended yet sometimes I wish it might.

Happy birthday… I wish I had more money
Happy birthday… life’s so sad its funny
Happy birthday… how much more I can take… fuck it, my friends are hungry so I’ll cut the stupid cake.

The hurt Locker was a joke... I work with EOD as there security convoy commander. No EOD tech that ive ask has liked it, and most wont even watch it... its full of mistakes... some scenes are almost painful to watch... they didnt get it right.
