lyrics

Vs 1:
Let’s get back to the basics
Classic and A-list
Masochist/Sadist
Relationship status is mad complicated
The last place imaginable in the race
is last place for ya boy
last two days been a great bender
they try to
smash and rage 'bout the news cycle
they lie to you
and I just wanna see some smash faces
write mad fables, attach cables, and cry for you
and put it on colored wax
in plastic wrap
for the vinyl goons

Hook:
My cartoons are new to you
Your cartoons are old to me
I done seen this movie already
come on and retune the telly
cuz I got one two too too many
new much news to read
And you can tell me I’m wrong
(la la la la)
And you can tell me I’m gone
(la la la la)
and you can play me this song
but I won’t listen

Vs 2:
Back to the basics
Smackin’ a racist with a baseball bat
in a Patriot’s cap with a back pat from Tom Brady
(yeah)
see ain’t nothin’ sacred
so go on tell me it’s hatred
to wanna attack back when a fascist
gets in your face with it
face it – I’m deflated
I’m back and forth every day with it
I’m pacin’ the floor stainin’ the boards up on the stage with this
I’m takin’ no more human waste on board this spaceship
by the time you hear this maybe the Lord
will have shined his face on you but...

Bridge:
And you can tell me what you know I wanna hear
I never really saw the point of gettin' in by the window
You know I feel so guilty just for being human
See me though this
I just wanted to be a good person
wanted to be a good person
wanted to be a good person uh
and if you wanna come see me workin'
well come on and see me workin’
come on with me and we’ll work it out

Hook:
My cartoons are new to you
Your cartoons are old to me
I done seen this movie already
come on and retune the telly
cuz I got one two too too many
new much news to read
And you can tell me I’m wrong
(la la la la)
And you can tell me I’m gone
(la la la la)
and you can play me this song
but I won’t listen
I don't like the lyrics
