lyrics

Gently humming factories made it cheaper
Thought that you’ve got to have it, like a creeper. Tendrils in your brain.
What do you do with your life? You buy buy buy.
Everlasting growth. Where does your house of cards lie?
The body you ride around in. Where does it take you to?
Wearing out both the same streets and your smart shoes.

You don’t know the difference between being happy and not unhappy.
You don’t know the difference between being happy and not unhappy.

But you’ve got your.

Incessant photography. Making an object of me. Collaged mortality.
A tourist’s reality. Showing us.
So irrefutably there, so irrefutably there, so irrefutably there, ‘til one day we came not to be.

You don’t know the difference between being happy and not unhappy.

In 1930 John Maynard Keynes predicted that technology would have advanced sufficiently that we’d all work 15-hour weeks. There’s every reason to believe,
He was right. But he was half right.

A labyrinth we don’t know we’re in.
