I am an Architect (Video music)

“Yo, Where my red lines at?”

by YKKAPvideo

 

I picture Frank Lloyd Wright, while you think I’m Mike Brady

And engineers devour our work and call us crazy

We got rounded specs, but they ain’t for looks

It’s from staring at our screens and all those history books

We turn an empty space, into a world of possibility

Maintaining privacy, and tranquility

Graduate from school, about to change the world,

But I’m stuck designing thrones with a clockwise swirl

 

CHORUS

We’re architects oh! With creative flair

Re-designing the world, from buildings to chairs

It’s a daily grind, but we love what we do

A satisfying job giving you a better view

 

Lord of the Elmer’s, and king of scraps

Making models our of paper, and plastic bottle caps

I’m a master of BIM, making lines with dashes,

Except I’ll lose my mind, if Revit *bleep* crashes

GREEN is gold, and LEED is big,

Know the golden triangle, and learn your trig

Challenge the formula, push the envelope,

Put more glazing over here. That looks really dope!

 

CHORUS

 

Crank the A/C in the office just to stay awake,

Espresso and Red Bull till I got a stomach ache.

With our cotton blazers high, we have a sense of style,

But to the rest of the world we just point and smile

I read code books, while I’m on vacation

Take pictures of, my latest creation

We wear black and gray, with no logos on our threads

So many sleepless nights we’re like the walking dead

 

CHORUS

 

Got so many scales, myswell (might as well) call me a fish

Does your lawn look boring? I’ll design you a dish

Starchitects, no!, call them Hollywood actors,

Cause they can’t deal with general contractors

Spec book wasn’t clear so I got these RFI’s

Clients making changes that we all despise.

We got better FORM, than Jordan’s jump shot

And designs that function like a million dollar yacht.

 

CHORUS

 

I’m an architect, “Oh you mean like Ted Mosby?”
