Elon Musk Is Making Me Sad
The Rentals Lyrics


You have the power to save, you have the power to save me

Let me tell you the tale about a rivalry, grab an Eagle Number Two and keep the score
There were these two young boys that came from average broken homes
With all the luxuries, the middle class affords Oh, Lord

Elon's making me so sad cause I calculated the math of our birthdates
And I had a head start out of the start gate, two years plus eighty-six days, but that all went to waste
Oh, Elon you're making me so sad cause the race that I wanted to have was not much of a race
And I tried, Love and for a moment, I thrived, Love, but could not keep my stride up to keep pace

But for a second, there's no question, I had the lead in Ninety-Five
I mismanaged my advantage like a rocket ship you blasted by to incredible heights
Incredible heights

In Nineteen Eighty-Two, on Christmas day
Santa gave us each a brand-new Commodore
I used mine to make fake I.D.'s and buy beer in Junior High
While my foe studied every bit of that 8bit whore
Are you keeping score?

Cause Elon's making me so sad cause I calculated the math of our birthdates
And I had a head start out of the start gate, two years plus eighty-six days, but that all went to waste
Oh, Elon you're making me so sad cause the race that I wanted to have was not much of a race
And I tried, Love and for a moment, I thrived, Love, but could not keep my stride up to keep pace

But for a second, there's no question, I had the lead in Ninety-Five
But the small ambitions of a musician, I could not keep my eye on the prize
I watched you fly by to incredible heights

When it's time to say goodbye, what will they write on my tombstone?
Just that last little line from the Happy Days Video? Not so good, Jonze

Hey, Elon (hey, Elon!) I don't know what I have become (hey, Elon!)
I need someone to help change my fate I think you can save me (Can you save me?)
Do you think you can save me? (I think you can save me!)
Do you have the power to help me escape?

Oh, Elon, let me be the first one, of your new civilization to be saved
Yes, I'll try, Love! I swear to you I can thrive, Love, this time I'll keep my stride up and keep pace
Only you can change my Q-score make me the first one out of that door
First boots out on the Martian Floor to proclaim, oh, that Elon, sent me all the way, Son
A hundred thirty-nine million miles away, oh

Elon, send me away, send me away, Elon, send me away
Elon, tell me I'm saved, tell me I'm saved, Elon tell me I'm saved

You have the power to save, you have the power to save me
You have the power to save, you have the power to save me

(Send me away)

And then I will say, I went to Mars and won the race, yeah, I will say, I took first-place
Oh, I rode that Old Heart of Gold the whole way and in the end, HEY, I won the race!
Oh, oh, Elon, let me win the race, win the race, oh, Elon, let me take first place!
Elon, tell me I am saved, I am saved, Elon tell me I am saved

(Send me away!)

You have the power to save me, tell me I'm saved

Elon, tell me I am saved

You have the power to save me, send me away

You have the power to save.

Elon Musk Is Making Me Sad

Let me tell you the tale about a rivalry
Grab an Eagle Number Two and keep the score
There were these two young boys that came from average broken homes
With all the luxuries, the middle class affords
Oh, Lord...

Elon’s making me so sad cause I calculated the math of our birthdates
And I had a head start out of the start gate, 2 years plus 86 days, but that all went to waste
Oh, Elon you’re making me so sad cause the race that I wanted to have was not much of a race
And I tried, Love! And for a moment, I thrived, Love! But could not keep my stride up to keep pace

But for a second, there’s no question, I had the lead in ninety-five
I mismanaged my advantage; like a rocket ship he blasted by
To incredible heights, incredible heights

In nineteen eighty-two, on Christmas day
Santa gave us each a brand-new Commodore
I used mine to make fake I.D.’s and buy beer in junior high
While my foe studied every bit of that 8bit whore

Are you keeping score?

Cause, Elon’s making me so sad cause I calculated the math of our birthdates
And I had a head start out of the start gate, 2 years plus 86 days, but that all went to waste
Oh, Elon you’re making me so sad cause the race that I wanted to have was not much of a race
And I tried, Love! For a moment, I thrived, Love! But could not keep my stride up to keep pace

But for a second, there’s no question, I had the lead in ninety-five
But the small ambitions of a musician, I could not keep my eye on the prize
I watched him fly by, to incredible heights

When it’s time to say goodbye, what will they write on my tombstone?
Just that last little line from the Happy Days Video?

Not so good, Jonze

Hey, Elon! (Hey, Elon!) I don’t know what I have become (Hey, Elon!)
I need someone to help change my fate
I think you can save me! (Can you save me? I think you can save me!)
Do you think you can save me? Do you have the power to help me escape?

Oh, Elon! Let me be the first one, of your new civilization to be saved
Yes! I’ll try, Love! I swear to you I can thrive, Love!
This time I’ll keep my stride up and keep pace
Only you can change my Q-score! Make me the first one out of that door
First boots out on the Martian Floor to proclaim...
Oh, that Elon! Sent me all the way, Son, a hundred thirty-nine million miles away!

Elon! Send me away; send me away! Elon, send me away (Tell me I'm saved!)
Elon! Tell me I’m saved; tell me I’m saved! Elon tell me I’m saved (Send me away!)

And then I will say, I went to Mars and won the race! Yeah, I will say, I took first-place!
Oh, I rode that Old Heart of Gold the whole way and in the end, hey! I won the race!
Oh, oh! Elon! Let me win the race, win the race! Oh, Elon! Let me take first place!
Elon! Tell me I am saved; I am saved! Elon tell me I am saved!

You have the power to save, you have the power to save me!
(Elon, tell me I am saved!)
You have the power to save, you have the power to save me!
(Tell me I am saved!)
You have the power to save me! You have the power to save me!
(Send me away!)
You have the power to save.

Matt, don't feel sad, I'm assuming your family didn't own an emerald mine in South Africa so I'd say it wasn't much of a fair race 😉 Catchy song!

Fiza Hasnain

Matt I don’t know if you’ll read this but you’re truly an inspirational songwriter and what you create helps me and probably so many others with day to day life so thank you so much for your music :)

Reck

I like this song cuz it's not just about Elon musk but that existential crisis everyone has at some point. Nothing you do will be as important or remembered as someone like elon. There are people younger than you who are already far more successful and that brings you down for a bit.

David McKelvey

I don't know if you'll read this Matt, but you're a musical genius.

Peter G

Given the popularity of Bo Burnhams Jeffery Bezos song… I’m surprised that an absolute banger like this has not taken off… maybe somebody should make a tiktok using this song

gnuMan

Haha! Yes ikr. I tried the reels thing but I guess I'm not popular enough lol
