I Had It Coming
Pigfarmer Jr

You got your revenge on my still-born heart
Cut me to pieces, you broke me apart
i guess I knew that it would come to this
When I messed up once again

I know you know it wasn't my intent
What I said wasn't what I meant
I'm not saying I'm not to blame
But you didn't have to cut me so deep

I deserved it
I know I had it coming
I deserved it
What I get for always running
I thought that I had found in you
My core, my rock that wouldn't move
I guess I screwed it all up once again
I had it coming

Through it all it was easy to see
It wasn't you, it was all me
I wish I could make things right
Put us back together again

Now it's too late to be the guy
Who will do the work, look you in the eye
You deserve to be happy once more
I don't have the right to complain

I deserved it
I know I had it coming
I deserved it
What I get for always running
I thought that I had found in you
My core, my rock that wouldn't move
I guess I screwed it all up once again
I had it coming

I deserved it
I know I had it coming
I deserved it
What I get for always running
I thought that I had found in you
My core, my rock that wouldn't move
I guess I screwed it all up once again
I had it coming

Phlebia

I had it coming
I should have known defenses fall apart
And as one period ends, another starts
I had it coming
Coming like a visitor from the stars
Spreading out like hyphae in agar

Sphere is flashing green and blue
Every leap year hunter’s moon
Red light overcame the room
Single candle lantern gloom
Steeped in passionflower blooms
Chasing water vapor plumes
Capillary flesh balloon
Grow, expand, and fill the room
Tell me once and show twice
Plaster covered putty knife
Saturated; swarming; rife
Neolithic wooden fife
Dousing rods finding water
Flint, steel, iron solder
Silky lace and cannon fodder
Cheat the system, karmic Frogger
Stout, porter, ale, lager
Meadow clearing chainsaw logger
Hyperthermal windshield fogger
Self destructive midnight blogger
Hear the sight and feel the humming
Multiply; or is it summing
Feel the analgesic numbing
Knowing that I had it coming
Cut the tension, feel the slack
Spectral swirls and shadow black
Spiral inward, blow the stack
Voyage onward
(and never look back)

I Had It Coming
by Lichen Throat

When I feel quiet, when I feel blue,
When I can’t sell a BMW,
The one day a month when I ain’t got coke,
Got no liquor, no dope to smoke,
That’s when I wonder where it all went wrong,
Why I’m so desperate to belong.
A big, dumb guy with a thick moustache,
I may have money, but I’m rich white trash.
I had it coming;
There’s no denial,
So now I’m numbing
Myself for a while.

House on the shore of Lake St. Clair,
On my balcony atop the stair,
I see smoke and flickering light
Of fires burning on Devil’s Night.
I hear Debi on the radio,
Unattainable voice on the weekend show.
Sky and lake are glowing blue,
Every surface cold with dew.
I had it coming;
There’s no denial,
So now I’m numbing
Myself for a while.

Maybe if I talk a little louder,
The voices will go away.
Maybe if I act a little prouder,
They’ll care about what I say.

I’m the the one they always snub,
Sitting alone at the Hippo Club,
Peeling labels off bottles I drank,
Empty inside with the surface blank.
Some grown men will still be boys,
Stuck in time, till time destroys
Illusions of eternal youth
When they finally see the truth.
I had it coming;
There’s no denial,
So now I’m numbing
Myself for a while.

I Had it Coming

I guess I’m in it for the long haul
The new kid at school who went down the wrong hall
My actions caused long lasting repercussions
And I had discussions about my disappointing behavior
I was the picture of Hope a mixture of both
Both?
An Instagram savior a bringer of flavor
To your bland brand of existence a vision of chaos
Like a slam dance in the distance so you better pay us
And crowd surf over to the loud mouth jehovah witness
Behold my business it will change your life I told ya listen
You will pray to buy everything i’m selling you twice
Everything I’m telling you is revolutionary right?
Give me all your money that’s restitutionary nice
It’s best you marry settle down and let it down
Your hair and your guard be young and be wild
Dare to worship god and don’t forget to smile you in it for the long haul

I had it coming, you started running
I had to be alone (I had it coming)
I had it coming, it’s always something
I’m feeling pretty cold (I had it coming)
I had it coming, always pushing buttons
I had to be alone (I had it coming)
I had it coming, I had learned nothing
I’m chiseled out of stone (I had it coming)

I walked out the laboratory
I talked about the saddest stories
Mass extinction faster instincts of a super intelligent virus
A parasite that hides inside us
And why us? making us look fine just
Chillin on a summer night I wonder right?
How did it get so smart? And tear us apart?
From the inside out and I doubt this will be over anytime soon
Any fly dudes with the same symptoms?
Why was this predicted on the Simpsons?
Listen I’m an expert on how sadness works I’m smitten
I even know a thing or two on how magnets work it’s written
In the sands of time I’m handsome like scriptures with pictures of plague and famine
Fly me to the moon I want to talk to Sampson
And damn it I’m tired of being sick but I keep rapping
I want to recover wonder if it will ever happen
And what if I don’t? I’m starting to think that I won’t
Am I ever feeling better? Nope

I had it coming, you started running
I had to be alone (I had it coming)
I had it coming, it’s always something
I’m feeling pretty cold (I had it coming)
I had it coming, always pushing buttons
I had to be alone (I had it coming)
I had it coming, I had learned nothing
I’m chiseled out of stone (I had it coming)

I Had It Coming - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Sometimes things don't go quite the way you planned
This is one of those times

Well you'd think I knew better
But it wasn't to be
That old bad judgment
Got the better of me
Nowhere to pass the buck
I gotta look in the mirror
No one to blame
I'm the only one here

I'm in trouble and there's nowhere to run
Paper cuts and spilling guts
Have finally caught up to me
I had it coming I had it coming
Too late to stop this danger bus
Rolling straight for me

The rock is now the hard place
And I'm stuck in deep
The frying pan's on fire
And it's playing for keeps
No one to call for life line
I'm floating on my own
Caught up in a riptide
I'm about to go down

I'm in trouble and there's nowhere to run
Paper cuts and spilling guts
Have finally caught up to me
I had it coming I had it coming
Too late to stop this danger bus
Rolling straight for me

The DA takes the bench and brings her papers to the fore
The judge is shooting daggers at this prisoners of war
The lawyer counts his money and decides if he should fight
While the jury wants to go back home, forget this all tonight
I get up in the witness stand and I swear a solemn oath
And I wear a mask of dignity as my whole world goes south
Cause when the cell door locks til executioner is summoned
I'll pray to father up above although I had it coming
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

I Had it Coming
R. 242 x H. Wallace

optional challenge: Incorporate the title of a fight from 2000-2004 into your lyrics

Henry Wallace is excerpted from his 1942 speech, "Century of the Common Man"
https://www.americanrhetoric.com/speech ... dassoc.htm

The other lyrics are 40 titles from 00-04 fight titles that I attempted to turn into an... impressionistic but cogent narrative of online extremism, polarization and alienation. With some additional articles because I'm a big cheater.

[H. WALLACE]
The demagogue is the curse of the modern world.
And of all the demagogues, the worst are
those who feel that they can get square with the world only by mentally
and politically degrading other people.
These stooges are really psychopathic cases.


[R. 242]
Straw man, man of the year
Listen close: it's invisible.
Fear is free.
I am tempted (in a) tiny room
(By a) world of screens

Red flag(s).
In the ditch, I can see you.
Say the word, (and) in full effect:
(the) wrath of God.

Cold sweat : I am tempted
(by the) soft orange glow
(to) fire bomb (this) cancer,
(this) cur

Not this time.
Step up (and) / stand in the circle.
The gutter('s) adaptation (to a)
Rot to fill

[H. WALLACE]
American greed!

[R. 242]
(This) poison pill

[H. WALLACE]
Democracy!

[R. 242]
LEFT/RIGHT! LEFT/RIGHT!
Cemetery / on a line
(we had it coming.)
I had it coming.

[H. A. WALLACE]
Amer-mer-merican
(Psy-psy-psy-) Psychopathic cases.
For the stark truth is
the violence preached by the Nazis
is the devil's own religion of darkness.
So also is the doctrine
that one race...
is by heredity superior.
Some have spoken of the "American Century."
I say that the century which we are entering
can be and must be the century of the common man.
Perhaps it'll be America's opportuinity to support
the freedom and duties by which the common man must live.
but there must be neither military nor economic imperialism.



[R. 242]
Not this time.
Stronger than / a thousand swords
Level best / secrets (are) driving.
I THINK IT'S KILLING ME.

Left! Right!

[H. WALLACE]
Nazis, nazis.

[R. 242]
Run faster.
A promise is a promise, Polaris.
(we had it coming.)
I had it coming.

[H. WALLACE]
Satan has turned loose upon us... the insane.

V1
I once had a women was good for me
Our love I thought would last eternally
Once in a while we’d have a fight
Just for the make up sex, all night

But my love was in trouble and I didn’t know
My sweety was steaming and ready to blow
She was tired of me staying out late
I came home one night I could feel the hate
( she was pissed, so....)

Ch.
She broke some dishes throwing em at me
She broke my glasses and now I can’t see
She broke my pickup and now it won’t start
But the worst thing she did was she broke my heart

V2
I had it coming but didn’t know it then
I hoped our love would blossom again
I tried to reason with a pissed off lover
Not a smart thing to do I soon discovered

My friends said forget her and don’t be sad
Find another lover better than you had
So I’ve made sure of one thing with the ladies I’ve met
That they don’t break things when they get upset

Ch.
Cause that first one....
broke my washer so I wear dirty clothes
She hauled off and hit me and broke my nose
She broke my checkbook down at the K mart
And the last thing she did was she broke my heart

And She broke some dishes throwing em at me
She broke my glasses and now I can’t see
She broke my pickup and now it won’t start
But the worst thing she did was she broke my heart

The last thing she did was...... she broke my heart

You said you loved me
Just like a brother
I told you one thing
And meant another
I read the signs
And took off running
I had it coming
I had it coming

I lost the gamble
I can feel it
Leave it open
Someone can steal it
Add up the numbers
I’m down a dozen
I had it coming
I had it coming

Oh, let the record show there were
Things at the time that I didn’t know
Oh, this much is true I was
Never much on my follow-through
Oh, I waited to say what I
Should have told you right way
But it all added up to nothing

The words were right there
I could hear ‘em
Kept ‘em hidden
Never appearing
They shoulda come out
Pushing and shoving
I had it coming
I had it coming

Oh, let the record show there were
Things at the time that I didn’t know
Oh, this much is true I was
Never much on my follow-through
Oh, I waited to say what I
Should have told you right way
But it all added up to nothing

You said you loved me
Just like a brother
I told you one thing
And meant another
I read the signs
And took off running
I had it coming
I had it coming

Vom Vorton

I was slightly startled
a little unnerved
I asked for nothing
but I got what I deserved
yeah, I had it coming

I was a broken robot
I was a delayed train
you knocked me over
and said start again

I was a hopeless failure
I was a little forlorn
but with your assistance
I could be reborn

I Had It Coming by fauxthoreau

You spoke real slow
Said it over and over but I didn't listen
You painted a picture of the cosmos
But I had tunnel vision

What you needed, what you wanted
You couldn't have made it any clearer
You were standing at the window
But I was staring in the mirror
In the mirror

I went looking for hay in a needlestack
I put up with the pain to try and get you back
This was always gonna end I shoulda known from the start
I had it coming when you went and
Broke my heart
I had it coming when you broke my heart
I had it coming when you

Told me what you needed, told me what you wanted
You couldn't have made it any clearer
You were standing at the window
While I was, while I was

Looking for hay in a needlestack
I put up with the pain to try and get you back
This was always gonna end I shoulda known from the start
I had it coming when you went and
Broke my heart
I had it coming when you broke my heart
I had it coming when you broke my heart
I had it coming when you broke my heart
I had it coming when you
