Lazy Projector

Album: Break It Yourself (2012)
  • If memory serves us, then who owns the master
    How do we know who's projecting this reel
    And is it like gruel or like quick drying plaster
    Tell me how long til the pain starts to kill

    Is it like pirannahs on the problem
    Are we not sure we don't know
    You know history repeats itself
    And time's a crooked bow
    Come on, tell us something we don't know

    Now whos the best boy and the casting director
    And he edited, splicing your face from the scene
    It's all in the hands of a lazy projector
    That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine
    That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine

    They say all good things must come to an end
    Every day the night must fall
    How it all came to this
    I simply can't recall
    Too many cooks in the kitchen
    How the mighty must fall
    And I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all
    Oh I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all
    Oh I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all
    Breaking up at all

    And it's all in the hands of a lazy projector
    That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine Writer/s: ANDREW WEGMAN BIRD
