A song about the death of a much loved piece of punctuation at the hands of the interweb.
A very personal song.


Grey clouds
Hanging heavy over trees with bags as leaves
The sun has never shined here

And the promised rain
has never fallen
But the ground is sodden and
Soft beneath your feet

Are you alone
You want to try
To get back home
You wonder why
There is no-one around
In the place where apostrophes
Go to die

You come
From comments sections, bulletins and statuses
Because you just weren't wanted

Apparently, you're not important
Even though you help
Us all see eye to eye

Can't understand
Why they don't try
To learn. there is
No reason why
They ignore this guy
So apostrophes go here to die

Is the difference between knowing that you're shit
And knowing your shit

But some still say
"What's it matter?
your not in school
Your just so not cool!"
And I say "you mean
Y. O.
U. Apostrophe. R. E."
And they hate me.

And I hate them
Even though I realise
It's a waste of my time

There is a something
Deep inside me can't let it go
Even though I should

But I just can't
live a lie
So I'll stay here
By you side
Until you go
To the place where apostrophes
Go to die
