Word scraps · the website of grandperoxide

The way I write songs, and interact with language in general, is whenever I come upon an interesting phrase or word, I keep it. Sometimes I can use it later. This is the current list. Some of them have already begun to have been fleshed out a little here. And for god's sake, if you can use something here, take it. I didn't come up with half this stuff myself.

Omg wait I'm going to do an hr tag to start this

Did you know I used to have employees? But if I were being honest it's easier with just me
Believe it or not I've been de facto leader more times than I could count
