I had a dream last night

In which ev’rything wrong

In my life went right.

Imagine my surprise

At such a quick transition!

It played out so vividly

That it’s hard to describe

What it did to me.

Suffice to say,

I took it as a premonition.

Today’s the day I get a move on.

Today’s the day I change.

Today’s the day that I improve on

Who I am and ev’rything I do.

Today’s the day that I break up with you!

Just stop and think about

All the times I gave in

So that we’d work out.

If you look at the score,

I think I tip the balance!

But you prob’ly think that’s great,

‘Cause you take and you drain

And manipulate.

I guess every succubus

Is gonna have those talents!

Today’s the day that I get angry!

Today’s the day I fight!

Today’s the day that I harangue the

Telling off that’s way past overdue.

Today’s the day that I break up with you!

Don’t look at me like that

With your cute, pouty lips

And your big, sad eyes.

You’re pretty, but you’re pretty much a bitch.

It’s not gonna be like that,

Where you shoot from the hips

With your big, fat lies!

I’m hunting down another wicked witch!

It’s time for you to see

That the world is the world universally --

And nowhere does it say

That you can run my planet!

So you take our history

And your need for control and co-misery

And brace yourself real good --

Then go ahead and cram it!

Today’s the day that I’m the victor!

Today’s the day I win!

Today’s the day I do your sister.

Here’s a toast to starting life anew!

Today’s the day that I wake up.

It’s time to say, “I’ve had enough!”

Today’s the day that I break up with you.

This is a cover of “Today’s The Day” by Inverse T. Clown, an artist I met on the “Too Much Awesome” website.  At one point, someone suggested that each of the artists on the site should cover a song by another TMA artist.  Well, not everyone actually followed through on the idea -- but I did, and I picked this one.  I thought it was fun, catchy -- and totally unlike my own personality.  So I gave it a shot!

For the sake of reference -- here’s the original . . .
