Liner Notes: 

Please accept this humble peace offering for breaking 50/90. This is why I shouldn't post when I'm tired. Thanks, [@ericdistad]!

NOTE: The line about Poison Control is based on a real event that ALSO happened yesterday, so... banner day. Yes, I'll be fine, just feeling like poop.

Lyrics: 

When it's the end of the road
Finish line is in sight
When you're frantically writing
All through the night
When the clock is ticking
Times nearing an end
That's when technology's
Not Your friend

It's like Jell-O
That won't come out of the mold
Like calling Poison Control
And they put you on hold
Disappointment and chaos abound
That's what it feels like
When the songlist goes down

Little error codes
Bring us to a screeching halt
Sorry about all that
Yeah, it's probably my fault
Honest mistake
Wish there'd been a warning sign
It'll probably happen again
But the blame won't be mine

It's like Jell-O
That won't come out of the mold
Like calling Poison Control
And they put you on hold
Disappointment and chaos abound
That's what it feels like
When the songlist goes down

Oh, I know how hard we've all worked
Then someone comes along
And the system gets forked
Thanks for fixing all the code I warped

Really, Eric - you da man!

It's like Jell-O
That won't come out of the mold
Like calling Poison Control
And they put you on hold
Disappointment and chaos abound
That's what it feels like
When the songlist goes down

Eric is awesome. And I'm glad you're able to look back and laugh on these things... seriously, being put on hold by poison control sounds very disconcerting indeed!
