The 4th Track from Captain Cake's Debut Album: THE CAKE ZONE

lyrics

Okay Then
What Can I say
I Guess back in the day
I got carried away
Thinking I had some crisis going on
of the ?quarter life variety but I was wrong
I don't pay enough attention to the good things when I got em
But back I thought my job was the problem
And then this book called the The Tao Te Ching
Made me reconsider everything
How did a Toaist sage who probably didn't exist
Show me a better way of living that I somehow had missed
I don't know if there's an afterlife
But what I do know
Is the here and now is better if I go with the flow
As I check my ego
And let the past go
Thinking how I wished i'd learned that 10 years ago
Life's not a Crisis
Nor is it a race
The only race is with myself
And i'm coming first place

I'm the one they call Captain Cake
I'm not the type to be false and fake
I'm just doing my best to make my own life great
The rest is up to fate
I'm the one they call Captain Cake
Don't let nothing bring me down
Especially hate
I ditched criticism
For the chance to create
Now let me demonstrate

Well i'm a crap musician
And i'm never gonna be the next Australian Idol
But that's a good thing probably
But I can up my game
With these words I write
Share nothing with the world that I think is Shit
Try as hard as I might
To make it funny and clever
And if it doesn't measure up
Don't share it ever
And whether it's a novel or a poetry slam
A short story or a skit, I'll give a damn
Drop language warnings, Like I was on Triple ZZZ
About to play a Slayer song
If you're offended, go to bed
When I tried magic
I couldn't raise the dead
But when I swam in Brisbane River
Well I grew an extra head, Damn

I'm the one they call Captain Cake
I fish for compliments in Burleigh Lake
I get Diarrhea when I drink a chocolate shake
Because Lactose is something that I can't take
I'm the one they call Captain Cake
When I was 14 I wrote a song about Steak
I'm not like Side Show Bob when he steps on rakes
I learn from my mistakes

I may not be your idea of success
But I couldn't care less
Cause I know that i'm blessed
I'll attest, I'm obsessed
With my quest to be
The best version of me that exists currently
I'll put words together
And try to be clever
So if you don't like it
Then fucking whatever
I'm not quitting ever
I'll strive to be better
Then my life last endevour
From now til forever
So you can tell the fucking youtube trolls
To step back from the keyboard and get some goals
I didn't see your fucking comment for 2 whole years
A little late to reply but I shed no tears
I studied journalism
And I didn't get far
But now i'm kinda glad things are the way they are
There's more to life than money and success
And I don't wanna work for the Murdoch Press

I'm the one they call Captain Cake
I'm not the type to be false and fake
I'm just doing my best to make my own life great
The rest is up to fate
I'm the one they call Captain Cake
Don't let nothing bring me down
Especially hate
I ditched criticism
For the chance to create
Now let me demonstrate
I'm the one they call Captain Cake
I fish for compliments in Burleigh Lake
I get Diarrhea when I drink a chocolate shake
Because Lactose is something that I can't take
I'm the one they call Captain Cake
When I was 14 been waiting for that Steak
I'm not like Side Show Bob when he steps on rakes
I learn from my mistakes
