Oh the streets of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas fill with smoke
Doorbell rings
I put my controller down and pick it up
Shoot some things
Later, the darkness hits reboot and the loneliness increases
She said she'd come back home when I write my master's thesis

Oh the hours I spent in the archives wearing cotton gloves
Shuffling photos from the Ninette Sanatorium
Halloween parties
Emaciated ghosts hiding in those curtains' creases
I'll let you haunt the world when I write my master's thesis

No more marking first year papers
No more citing sources

So I left home
Cried the bumpy ride to highway 23
Started west
They'll be there to say that I don't to take their stupid test
Greet me with banners and balloons
And my hard drive smashed to pieces
Nothing left for me to save when I write my master's thesis
It's all gonna change when I write my master's thesis
