Mega Speech, Mini Whimpers

Microphone check! Microphone check! Microphone check!
Listen, I told you what's wrong
What more do you want?
I-I-I-I-I-I can't hear you
I-I-I-I-I-I don't understand-
Don't understand, don't understand, don't understand,
don't understand-
Why, don't, you, un, der, stand, me?
Baby, why can't you hear me?
Hollering in the Olympic amphitheater??
Down your ear!
Down you ears!
Drown your ears!
With your pushings,
to voice my fears-
and then-
not hear me...
Microphone check! Microphone check! Microphone check!
Yo what the fudge is this?
You need to check this microphone you gave me
when we started communicating...
I think it's broke...
Yo... stop DJ-ing the flow of my emotional waters...
The radio show is over...
& There was never no audience...
I think it's broke...
And now I
hear myself placing the mic down,
Like a broken record of sore throats,
and confused replies
Because now,
I know it's broken
