lyrics

I get worked up about the world
So I forget about the troubles that I've got
Now, I should really tell a joke or something
Keep it light, like I'm not
Waiting for the other shoe to drop
Yeah, but my life is not sustainable
So imagine what would happen if it scaled up
I'm never gonna be too big to fail
But I can bale, I can tread water
I could ride a whale if it let me
Mother father please test me

Because I test so well (uh oh)
Think I chose the wrong field (uh huh)
Can you tell that I'm out of place
Cockroach style, right answer, wrong face
Objectively better, objective: be better
All that matters is taste
Cause everyone's clever, and everyone ever
Can stick a few letters together
Wear them in until they're fitting
Like a favourite sweater

I wonder whether the weather will improve?
Something better happen soon
So many better things I bet I could do
Something better happen soon
I want to be wanted, I'm used to being used
Something better happen soon
There is a tune in my heart
But it's gloomy and dark, like a night with no moon
Except it's barely afternoon
And something better happen soon

Money's a substitute there's no substitute for
It misses more than it counts
Everything that's actually important
Is never recorded in the balance of a bank account
So now I shouldn't mind that my time
Isn't worth a dime let alone a dollar amount
But the bottom line counts, and for me it counts down
To the day my attempted escape
Just becomes a mistake I should never have made

I wonder whether the weather will improve?
Something better happen soon
So many better things I bet I could do
Something better happen soon
I want to be wanted, I'm used to being used
Something better happen soon
There is a tune in my heart
But it's gloomy and dark, like a night with no moon
Except it's barely afternoon
And something better happen soon
