lyrics

UR a Dope

Just walk around, see ‘em everywhere
roaming on a call, aimless without care
The walking sign, a honking blare
You stop me short with a grinning air

That’s something
Decency’s amiss

I could scream and shout
You’d think it a joke
What’s to laugh about
I’d try talking to you but you’re a dope

The theater’s fine and it ain’t 3D
The lights shut down, baby’s next to me
The mood is right, minds are keen
Some nitwit’s babbling, so obscene

“Are we late?” “Is that Marc” “Can you text him in the dark?”

I could scream and shout
Then I’m bad as them
I become a lout
I’d try talking to you but you’re too dim

No more dissin’
No more dissin’
No more dissin’
Ain’t no fun

Who walks around this entropy
and minds the world on a paltry screen
That’s American, that’s you and me
It’s all of us narcissistically

That’s something I would love to miss

I could scream and shout
You’d think it a joke
What’s to laugh about
I’d try talking to you but you’re a dope

Some might scream and shout
with arthritic thumbs
What’s that all about
I’d try talking to you but you’re too…
