LYRICS



SHAME

When you remember
What the trees are made of
You will give up on
Your 2D persuasion

You let a headline
Weaponize your headlight
You'll see me better
When you get your head up!

Just can't explain it
Just can't help you frame it
Look at a stranger
I wonder what it takes her

To live through another day
Without catching vapors

Shame
Can't take you anywhere
We can't take you anywhere

Can't take you anywhere!
Can't let you inside the house!
Turned off the papers
By unplugging up out the mouse

I'm fighting realness!
The commerce of it, I mean
Fighting authenticity
With what's left of feeling!

Just can't explain it
Just can't help you frame it
Look at a stranger
I wonder what it takes her

To live through another day
Without catching vapors


Shame
We can't take you anywhere

Guess what existence is?
Bigger than a business!
T.V. on your toenails
But you can't escape your thingness!

Just can't explain it, just can't help you frame it
Look at a stranger, wonder what it takes her

To live through another day
Without catching vapors

Shame
We can't take you anywhere
STRAWBERRY MOON

You don't know where you belong
You don't even know who you are
They're charging you for the sun
And he's using you for your car

When you were a kid, TV said
There's meaning in deodorant
Like the "statement of a great mint,"
It disappeared in your head

Strawberry Moon
You came too soon
It's three in the afternoon
Strawberry Moon
Now there's nothing to look forward to

When you were a grown up you read
A thought, one of two, in a thread:
The handle, or the avatar
Was once a piece of a god from a star

You don't know if you're alone
Or if you live just too far away
To give anyone else on the planet
The time for the time of day

Strawberry Moon
You came too soon
It's three in the afternoon
Strawberry Moon
Now there's nothing to look forward to

Oh, you remember when the century
Turned and the world spun on a digit?
The moon was like an apple then
Ever-spinning—okay, like a fidget—
And they wrote songs about it before
You were even born
Before you were like this:
Like an eclipse that nobody remembered
And nobody bought glasses to see

You wonder if you're still alive
You feel like a hole in the sky
Like you let the outer space in
Like you turn day into night

You might be the last to believe
That the strong should stand up for the weak
They would see it, if you could be seen
And hear you if you had heart left to beat

Strawberry Moon
You came too soon
It's three in the afternoon
Strawberry Moon
Now there's nothing to look forward to
HARD WORLD

The saddest thing about an animal
Is how quickly its death doesn’t matter
It’s a living breathing being
And then a thing being swept down the gutter

The saddest thing about an animal
Is that we are all animals too!
No better or worse than a turtle
Living through World War III in a zoo

Respect and demand best friend to the man, no!
While you fetishize shorthairs in Japan, no!

Whatever you do, don’t you hear, don’t you see
Don’t ever let your baby boy go into the street

If everything’s alive
Then everything hurts
And everything we do is the worst
Imagine: a flightless bird
Served for lunch, in the sky, in first!

If everything’s alive
Then here’s the kicker:
We hurt what we can’t see
They’re terrorized just ‘cause we’re bigger
And we prefer dark meat!

A bird in the hand will die by the hand, yeah!

Whatever you do, don’t you hear, don’t you see
Don’t ever let your baby boy go into the street

The world is hard for little things

It’s a hard world for the little things
But you can’t take a life if you’re given it
LOOK ALIVE

End of the ride, and now it's time to pay the price
Time to look alive
Life passed you by while you thought you were out of sight
Time to look alive

Can you look alive?
Time to look alive

One of the guys
He has been radicalized
Ladies, look alive!
Don't run and hide
The only way to change a mind
Is to vocalize

Can you look alive?
Time to look alive

You dreamt a dream inside a dream
But now it's time to get awake
You dreamt a dream inside a dream
But now it's time to get awake

Oh live, live, look alive
Playing dead won't help you to survive

Can you look alive?
(Your state of mind is not a symptom of the times, yeah)
Time to look alive

Your state of mind is not a symptom of the times
It's not the weather
So look alive!
Don't shut your eyes just because it is the night
I'm living now
I look alive

Can you look alive?
(Your state of mind is not a symptom of the times, yeah)
Time to look alive
FINGER LIKE A GUN

It's a nice oblivion
That you open with you thumb
(You open with your thumb)
Where some Siberian
Uses his finger like a gun
(His finger like a gun)

You can't touch me!
Hands up everyone!
Middles to the sun!

The feeling of apocalypse
When a touch becomes a grip
(A touch becomes a grip
And a finger's on your lip)
Because you're thinking of a kiss
And you're picturing a fist
(The emoji of a fist)

You can't touch me!
Hands up everyone!
Middles to the sun!
