422. Broken Toy

At first I wanted to draw the ultimate broken toy, Chuckie from Childsplay. Then I remembered a song from the Presidents of the U.S.A called “Mach 5”. They made weird songs, usually (as I interpreted it) from a child eye’s view, especially their second album called … “II”. They shared my humor growing up, and I still listen to them often as it is light rock, with a funny twist.

An excerpt from the lyrics:

I will survive in my Mach 5
In my Mach 5, I will survive
Yeah, Yeah

The firecracker blow
An urge overload
The wild plastic fire
Smoke from the tire
Layin’ a little patch
Without a single scratch
Between the hammer and the rock I
Can see bright blue mach 5
It’s my mach 5
Oh

Oh my goodnessIt’s the most beautiful little thing I’ve ever seen in my life
It’s blue on the outside and all creamy on the interior
Yeah
I can’t bring myself to smash it
So I take it for a ride on a sunny Summer Sunday afternoon
I’m riding with the top down
Riding with the top down Riding with the top down
Hell I blew the top right of my car

I will survive in my Mach 5
In my Mach 5, I will…
