lyrics

She said theres just no hope for me
You're being too hard on yourself
None of us are as
They promised we would be

Can't count the ways she said
It was a mistake to study
Sociology...

With nothing to compare
How can you weigh the cost
Of being secure
Or letting yourself get lost

In your opinion, do you believe
Tautology tragic, or more simply, misconceived

Watching hours of TV
To tether yourself to the world

Different sets but the same broad strokes
Character actors telling the same jokes

The kind of books you always liked
Have just gone out of style

And the kind of music that you make
Has caught on… for a while
Tender and mild
Unusually, they told me

Sorry for you and me
But this truth
Can’t be bowed or bent
Our youth, like all currency
Was gladly misspent

With no urgency

You know it’s strong
Stronger than the human heart
Love and Decay
A finish to every start

You know it’s strong
Stronger than the human heart
We live in decay
But try not to fall apart
