lyrics

There, I’m immortalized forty years ago, frozen in polaroid and trapped in snow, but see, all my teeth were there and they still show but now as just an echo.
Hair on my chest is transparent and at rest.
Are your parents just the best you are?
At best, just demoralized, frightened of the past, and re-runs all I ever show.
I watch my face grow feet and run.
I hide my eyes away from sun.
I cry and cry and I’m no fun, am I done?
Shy and regurgitant, what’s the point: to worship my idols, to just anoint?
We bend over backwards just to change and appoint but all we do is disjoint.
I buy all these clothes to distract me from my nose, to elicit praise for what I chose.
We all try to be our own, all unknown, but all we do is disappoint.
I break away umbilically.
I set my sights on setting free.
I find the where I want to be, but is it me?
The footprint in concrete we all strive to see, statistically we all cannot achieve.
At least try to be glad that you get to be.
One-up Mona Lisa’s all we try to do, though mediocrity’s mostly all that’s true.
Find happiness and try to make it through.
It’s all been done to death, done to death, done to death. It’s all been done to death all before.
