lyrics

(cover of Walter Mitty and His Makeshift Orchestra)

I just watched the new for fifteen minutes
and goddamn, am I depressed
I just spent an hour on fucking Facebook
until I realized I couldn't care less
and I keep fighting who we are,
who we've been, we've become
I can't take it
a Sinatra song
and I'm bleeding nostalgia again
My role says I should sit up and take it
But something tells me I should do my best to fight it -
Oh, fuck.

And I just spent an hour on the fifty-five
'cuz Shelby-fucking-Jacobson was on my mind
Try to convince her I'm a simple and happy guy
But I just came off as the nervous and neurotic type
Something's wrong my dear
When I don't know if I'll stand here in one year
and I keep having all these thoughts of nihilism
How truth is only relevant
Now I can barely brush my fucking teeth

And I'm from southern California
where we say words like 'gay'
and I don't mean to offend,
it's just the way I was raised
And I'm always being hunted
taking stabs for who I am
and I would say that I don't care
but I'm losing my friends
Being force-fed what to believe in
Like politics and horoscopes
and cliche definitions of success

(They're) telling me my time's up
A big choice
The four-year-old inside of me
just wants to go out and play
Through all of this bullshit
I just wish that someone would say:

"Come a little closer, we've got
otterpops in the icebox, we've got
milk and cookies by the TV
to make you feel alright"
