lyrics

who devised this bright new machine?
one of you self-styled inventor types, bursting on the scene
he’s an upstart, a looney, with a heart of cogs and gears
we don’t like surprises here

with your car parked in my spot
you can call me frail but i’m not, full stop
your car parked in my spot
i don’t need this today

is there no place to lie next to suburban sprawls,
as your new tradition shuffles in with funeral shawls?
show the meaning of this reckless need to pave your own predictable way
because i predict you’ll infiltrate

with your car parked in my spot
you can call me frail but i’m not, full stop
your car parked in my spot
i don’t need this today
