lyrics

System slow down, yeah I'm caught in a rut
I've been living somewhere between a monk and a slut
No shame in the future, got no pride in the past
No I didn't die young nor did I live fast
I fantasize prophecies foretell
No I don't spend a dime down at the wishing well
I'm weirdly tantalized by neighborhood
Where people act the same exactly as they should

We were born before the drones
We learned sympathy over the phone
And we practiced on our own
While the baby boomers blew up their homes

Don't be so hard on yourself
Don't take it out on anyone else
You don't have to be the selfish elf
Just bang your head for your mental health

Who told you life would be any good
When you're knocking down every single chance you stood
Well I guess I could just lay here and rot
But I get up every day and I give it a shot

We were born before the drones
We learned sympathy over the phone
And we practiced on our own
While the baby boomers blew up their homes

Don't be so hard on yourself
Don't take it out on anyone else
You don't have to be the selfish elf
Just bang your head for your mental health

Well I don't give a shit about fortune or fame
If I fuck this up there's only me to blame
You don't need a credit card to ride this train
But you don't get a view and all the news is the same

We were born before the drones
We learned sympathy over the phone
And we practiced on our own
While the baby boomers blew up their homes

Don't be so hard on yourself
Don't take it out on anyone else
You don't have to be the selfish elf
Just bang your head for your mental health
