lyrics

I don’t have any heroes anymore
Just a list of those against
whom I bear a jealous grudge
Perhaps Synapses misfired
I’m eating cereal at midnight,
a roast dinner at dawn.
I’m a bag of nerves waiting
for my poor posture
to inevitably
trigger sciatica

Seeing the faces of primary school classmates
On the streets of improbable cities
Although they always morph into someone else
right after, I’ve touched them on the arm
Mostly it’s the ones that left town
that I’m longing to see the most
Said she’d keep in touch
Nobody keeps in touch
Said she’d keep in touch
Nobody keeps in touch

I don’t have any nemeses any more
And even if I did, I wouldn’t broadcast it
In an under-listened to song
Is it abnormal
to never want children?
Is this something
for which I could blame someone?

Seeing the faces of primary school classmates
On the streets of improbable cities
Although they always morph into someone else
right after, I’ve touched them on the arm
Mostly it’s the ones who left town
That I’m longing to see the most
Said she’d keep in touch
Nobody keeps in touch
Said you’d keep in touch
Nobody keeps in touch
