about

This is a song about not wanting to buy a house.

lyrics

Hand in hand we descend to the graveyard,
You're oblivious and I'm duplicitous I fear.
Every moment is weighted,
Delayed gratification,
Of where we start to begin the ending.
And all my turbulent thoughts
Only serve to make me that much more aware,
Of the fact that I'm on the bus,
Heading out of town,
While you're on the trail of real estate there.

And I don't know how I manage to ruin,
Everything I lay my hands upon.
Is it a disease?
Or am I just impossible to please?
I've got a feeling, I'm uneasy.

I'm tired of never being satisfied,
I'd like to move outside and blast off.
But I'm in a funk and you'd never know it.
I don't know what side I want buttered.
I'm sick to the teeth of mediocrity,
Especially my own - it's suffocating me.
I'm like a spare part - I've got my uses,
I've got my belief, but no clue.

And I don't know how I manage to ruin,
Everything I lay my hands upon.
Is it a disease?
Or am I just impossible to please?
I've got a feeling, I'm uneasy.

Rhyme and reason,
Cause and effect,
In my head girl,
What comes next?
