The Lyrics

Part of my "I Want Music" self-challenge. Foley (noun): relating to or concerned with the addition of recorded sound effects after the shooting of a film.
Once it is known that it can be off
You can't help but spot all the really bad foley
Ee, yeah, yeah

Awful, awful work
Real flat actin', the CG's crap too
That's covered ground, ev'rybody's said their view
Whole lotta ****, let's look at somethin' new
Anti-, anti-joy
When you notice that in ev'ry single scene
You hear some sound effects that are less than pristine
Were only brand-new when the Flintstones were on screen

Once it gets noticed that that sounds off
You can't help but spot all the really bad foley
Real damn bad, all the stock sound clips
Wish I'd not found it, yeah, it rots my brain slowly
Oh-ee-oh-ee-oh, I think I've heard that
To-ee-oh-ee-one as Scooby falls flat
Wrecks the whole flow 'cause it's badly off
You can't help but spot (haha) all the really bad foley (whoo)

Mmm, sadly, sadly, that's not all that they've done badly (yeah, yeah)
They've messed up all the placement, all haphazard, understand me (yeah, yeah)?
My suspension can't hold up if each "smash" ends up delayed, no (whoo)
Even footsteps don't line up, how'd they botch that? I hate it, stab me (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Five stars? Not gonna because you've screwed all the drama (ah)
I guess it's possible to fill sound full of commas
At least the dialogue stays out of the mouths of others (eeh, yeah, yeah)
It's not The Dancin' Cavalier in that way, still suffer (yeah)

Hard to not focus on that, so off (off)
You can't help but spot (spot) all the really bad foley
Real damn bad, I'm still watchin' it (yeesh)
'Cause I've not yet sipped (yeesh) all the booze that I own, see
Oh-ee-oh-ee-oh, needed a drink bad
So-ee-oh-ee-oh I might forget that
Awful-ass joke, all so badly off
You can't help but spot all the really bad foley

Eeh, yeah, yeah

I just realised that this song blanks the word "shit" even though the rest of it is, you know, unrelentingly horny. Definitely the second-weirdest word blanking I've heard in a song (the weirdest being when Teenage Dirtbag blanked "gun" but not "dick").
