In the model view controller Life’s divided, organized It’s easy to see your thoughts pulled from a database Illusion of entrapment equals doom. Misinformed and confused I’m given options I think I choose The glow of what I can view is worshiped as truth I’m doomed Let’s ride

Meanwhile... The lady on the TV's singing how much she loves him as if she means it Dramatic slow-mo Turkish guy is clenching his fists to show he feels it Everything's emotional and serious Everything's emotional and serious You buy what you eye and try to model your style off the afterlife. I’m only gonna dance if I have heard of this song because I can’t feel it I’m only gonna dance if I have heard of this song because I can’t feel it Give them all an anthem to believe in Give them all an anthem to believe in The repetitious Sisyphus is looping the hits in the afterlife. I’m looking around, I'm thinking about it I’m breaking it down, I’m waiting for cues They’re dancing around, I’m thinking about it Stop… ok! Here’s another four dudes in a rawk band Here’s another love song for your right hand The repetitious Sisyphus is looping the hits in the afterlife. I’m only gonna dance if I’ve heard of this song before. I’m only gonna dance if I’ve heard of this song before. Singing messiahs Pensive objection Faces are gazing in random directions I’m waiting for the day when we can make our escape out of the afterlife. I’m looking around, I'm thinking about it I’m breaking it down, I’m waiting for cues They’re dancing around, I’m thinking about it Stop.

Down in a crypt my life depicts All the gloom and macabre in a Karloff flick. The gray malaise has spent all its days And now it’s time for something that will raze this phase. Down in a crypt my love gets stripped Under the sex and the ground where the rhythm’s kept. The raw, untamed, incandescent profane Lose control of their soul in this arcane domain. Down in the shit, the nit and the grit Where moving like a human means you dance a bit, The epidermis sweats and the heart’s divine While shaking to a Belgrade bomb in common time. Cyrillic skeleton dance Cyrillic skeleton trance I cannot speak your language but I know know know that I’m home.

Don’t get angry Don’t get sad Just behave Not an exit Vanilla future Lost decade Changed overnight A different body A deeper meaning The sun is rising The brain is haunted still Because take the long way backwards Going up to go down Straight on the path goes around around around around till there’s no path, only ground Feed on sense of escape Feed on sense of escape One dead end leads to another One dead end leads to another Call it confusion Or call it movement Premonition False alarms Same sidewalks No longer friends Exhaust all options Recurring dream A laundry list of Threats and promises So take the long way backwards Going up to go down Straight on the path goes around around around around till there’s no path, only ground Get away from the news Get away from the news One dead end leads to another One dead end leads to another Call it confusion Or call it movement So take the long way backwards Going up to go down Take the long way backwards Going up to go down Feed on sense of escape Feed on sense of escape One dead end leads to another One dead end leads to another

A myriad of thoughts go rummaging through my brain Saying “What are you doing? What are you doing?” I’m tired of being so nice when the norms don’t do the same. What am I doing? What am I doing? The feelings in my heart are trying to move my legs But get tangled every time and just end up in my head. Hey Miss, you alright? Hey girl you alright? Then what are you doing? What are you doing? Dramatic pause. Spotlighting. Produce aisle. I asked you a question. “I’m. Trying. To walk. Right out the door.” I can be the man that holds your pretty little hand They’ll say, “What are you doing?? What do you think you’re doing?? You’re just a stupid girl who’s confused, don’t understand. So then what are you doing?? What are you doing??” Hesitant pause. Empty stare. Cereal aisle. Is anyone in there? Gone... right out the door.

How many brain cells? Don’t need to think about it. The perfect galaxy? Don’t need to think about it. Most vivid color? Don’t need to think about it. I’ll write a think piece! Don’t need to think about it. I’m gonna check you out. I’m gonna check you out. I’m gonna check you out. I’m wanna check you out out out out alright. The king has spoken: everything that you're doing is wrong Don’t feel the notion of emotion that is there in the song Your UV needle zigzag noise marathon Ain't at the forefront of cool junk that I’ve hit upon The hypocritics come out, don’t need to think about it Your punk offends me somehow, don't need to think about it Circle jerk scene appends all the trends and then Pretends to know their value even though the value offends. How many major chords? Don’t need to think about it. Rows in my database? Don’t need to think about it. What’s in a masterpiece? Don’t need to think about it. I’ll square the circle! Don’t need to think about it.

Help me I’m stuck inside this airport My friends are ghosts Sundays Bones grinding slowly to a halt Job’s a mess Traffic There's lightning caught inside this jar No escape from the doom The girl in the magazine has it all. Beaches and French cuisine, vomit sprawl. We wish you all the luck on your journey. Meanwhile A feeling something’s gone awry Self esteem dream No time The city breathes another sigh Letting go Cornered I’ve been living like wallpaper Things have changed for the strange The girl in the magazine has it all. I’m sorry if this is mean: won’t miss you all. We wish you all the luck on your journey. Have a nice day!

I got a brand new crush An exciting new conquest I got a brand new crush A man who reads his Hermann Hesse While sipping tea to X-Ray Spex. I got a brand new crush He’s completely erudite I creep the colors on his lips for a fix when the thought of him inflicts I emulate his finger tips and dream he’ll be my little bitch someday I got a brand new crush! I know I’ve said it all before You leggy girls are all the same Pretty tame, your pretty makeup’s pretty lame I’m a rabid walking fantasy I came to kill before I leave. I shaved my legs for this. Throw him around like a little doll in a clash of dress up gender roles He can be my beauty queen Never heard but always seen Never heard but just obscene I got a brand new crush I’m gonna check him out Riding shotgun in a stare Like a deer, love sux if he’s not here There’s eye candy everywhere but honestly I just don’t care because I got a brand new crush! The feeling keeps me up at night You bitchy girls are all the same Pretty tame, your pretty makeup’s pretty lame I’m a rabid walking fantasy I came to kill before I leave. I shaved my legs for this. Throw him around like a little doll in a clash of dress up gender roles He can be my beauty queen Never heard but always seen Never heard but just obscene I got a brand new crush I got a brand new crush I got a brand new crush I got a brand new crush I’m dangerous, I’m assertive, I will cut you, let me tell you, let me tell you all about my my my my my brand new crush!

Motorcycle helmet Number 7 on each side Bullets hitting hand rails Drifting through red lights The villain’s got an eye patch A skull for the clutch Overused tropes give away the scene as they smash through some glass carried across the street. But I am not your cliche. Technicolor menace Ramming like a porno Detour through the market Punch the goon through the window Break through the gate to the flood canal Make the escape when the plot’s run out Why do you hear these scenes and then assume the roles are played by men? Because that is the real cliche.
