lyrics

I've been digging for a metaphor—
I don't recognize art anymore.
That's a bit of me that died away
(What a thing to say)

I've been searching for a simile,
Like a boat, drifting out to sea.
But no one writes their words as trite as these,
So it's up to me.

I'll just mumble through the megaphone…
No one's listening anyway.

I've been trying to write this middle eight,
Like a bridge would take me to a higher place.
But here, the ground only swerves and sways—
So on the ground, I stay.

I'm trying drifting toward a major key
To break the cloud that's only darkening.
But no one plays the minor notes like these,
So it's up to me.

I'll just mumble through the megaphone…
No one's listening anyway.
I saw the flaws in this cause from the start—
But I still bought it, and sold it back to you.
(And now we're screwed…)
