lyrics

I took some medicine and called it off
I told a teenager to stop with the act
And I felt just like the saddest sack in Baltimore
Outside my tailor's with my head on the floor
But I looked the same: dumb and vain
Interested only in fabric and chic baby names

You treat your promises like diningware
They're never broken, they were just broken in
But they look the same: dull and plain
Tarnished, but charming enough to ascend to the mess hall
(Don't we all?)

The opposite of apollonian isn't appalling
"Life . . . At the Hop" pop apologists stopped being honest

Ennui, that shred of feeling put to sleep
That faulty miracle which could reach the stars
If it weren't for the ceiling
I don't miss the feeling

Someone's in the kitchen with an alibi

Still the same, dumb and vain
Tarnished, but charming enough to ascend to the mess hall

Ennui, that shred of feeling put to sleep
That faulty miracle which could reach the stars
If it weren't for the ceiling
I don't miss the feeling
That spark of fervor quarantined
That faulty miracle which could reach the stars
If it weren't for the ceiling
I don't miss the feeling
I don't miss the feeling
I don't miss the feeling
