Failed Premise

lyrics

One by one clicking down the line
To the left the end of the line
People looking for a shining light
No one can find their white knight

Two by two all in a row
Couple smiling under a halo
you think you’re better than me
because I say I and you say WE

you’re saying look at me me me
Typical mediocrity
Always focused selfishly
Now you file taxes jointly

You love each other superficially
A marriage with zero sanctity
In six month an inquiry
Which one failed monogamy

Three by three a sign of the times
One more is the new pastime
You think you’re better than most
Except we see you as joke

Four by four ridiculous
Who’s being gluttonous
Living life with no conscience
Fucking is your business

you’re saying look at me me me
Typical mediocrity
Always focused selfishly
Now you file taxes jointly

You love each other superficially
A marriage with zero sanctity
In six month an inquiry
Which one failed monogamy

Since the dawn of time
We’re fed the same line
About a cosmic lover, pre-assigned

Since he don’t exist
We’re forced to reminiss
About a failed premis
