|2021 Music Hole Award Nomination|
|This article was nominated in the 2021 Music Hole Awards. It was nominated for the following category: Best Season 1+2 Song. However, it didn't win.|
"Lay My Head Down Slow" is an auto-tuned song sung by Finn in the episode "Freak City." It was sung after a deep depression brought on by his realization of being stuck as a giant foot forever in a cave filled with other random body parts of people transformed by the Magic Man. As the song continues, Finn realizes he must continue being a hero, and kicks the other body parts outside of the cave in order to find a plan to find Magic Man.
|Finn: Is this really my life?|
Is this how my story ends?
Bein' in this body
Seems like a battle that I cannot win.
|Maybe I should lay my head down slow|
And sleep until it's all over.
Is this the end
of the hero boy named Finn?
|Heck, no! Darn it, no!|
This isn't how I go!
I'm gonna kill it! I'm gonna kick life's butt
I'm in it to win it.
|I'm gonna take life's name|
And spit on it and kick it!
Life can just go eat it
'Cause this is a man's game!
|Finn: Get up, Gork!|
Gork: Huh? Why?
|Finn: I'm not gonna let you lie here|
And waste away.
You better get up, Gork, or I'll kick you up.
Today's the day!
|Gork: Whoa. Okay, man, just be cool.|
|Finn: And I'm not gonna be cool!|
'Cause I'm pipin' hot!
Get up, Trudy! Get up, Kim!
I'm not gonna let you rot!
|Jake: Hey, Finn.|
Finn: Ja-a-a-ke, stop tellin' me to enjoy being a foot and get out of that trash!
Jake: Heh heh. I can't take you seriously when you're singing, man.
|Finn: Get up! All of you make me sick!|
I'll fix you with my kicks!
Gonna reconstruct y'all's self worth
Brick by emotional brick.
