lyrics

I think you were right—
This has been pretty nice.
But I’m lookin’ for a clearer headed high.
Like the kind you get from Friday night,
Or the kind you get from tellin’ a lie.
Because I think that I work hard enough
To subsidize my only insides
With the obscene, the gasoline we need to go along with our lives.

And there’s a story we tell,
By truth or by rumor—
We all did so well,
Been some real good consumers.
And would you feel good if you were in your ideal TV?
Cause it’s got 5k pixel color, makes the real world seem much duller.
It’s nice to have,
And much more nice to need.

But every body’s brittle,
And everybody breaks
A chunk or just a little from
The madness that they make
To bring before the others
At the holy show and tell.
A reckoning, or auditing
Of coins in wishing wells.

And when they paint your portrait,
Let it be all tinted green.
And if you would record it,
Every detail of the scene
Belies a present threat of violence,
But the target isn’t me.
It’s all you can’t take with you when you leave.

But every body’s brittle,
And everybody breaks
A chunk or just a little from
The madness that they make
To bring before the others
At the holy show and tell.
A beckoning, or offering
Of coins to wishing wells.
