Wonderful Life

  • Hey, uh, are we rolling?
    Yeah, okay; no it's, that's fine
    I read a fun fact about the brain and
    How it starts to deteriorate when
    We get to 27 or thereabouts (Yeah)
    It got me thinking about my head
    And what I can do to help stimulate it
    Makes me sad, but I've forgotten what I'm on about
    (Ah!)

    Looked on the bright side, got keratitis
    And you can't sit there unless you're righteous
    I wear a happy face like I'm Ed Gein
    I feel all numb now, is that a feeling?
    Like a plastic boxed orange with no peel on
    I wanna waste, I wanna waste, I wanna waste away
    (Yeah!)

    'Lone, getting high on a Saturday night
    I'm on the edge of a knife
    Nobody cares if I'm dead or alive
    Oh, what a wonderful life

    Oi, Debbie Downer, what's your problem?
    Don't wanna be here, still call a shotgun
    You got the FOMO coursing through my veins (Yo, yay, yo, yay)
    This is not a drill, no, this is the real world
    Domesticated, still a little feral
    Well, don't you know to chew with your mouth closed?
    (And it's all gone wrong!)

    'Lone, getting high on a Saturday night
    I'm on the edge of a knife (Yeah!)
    Nobody cares if I'm dead or alive
    Oh, what a wonderful life
    (Oh, what a wonderful life)
    (Oh, what a wonderful life)
    Alright

    I got a Type 2 kinda thirstiness
    A far-out otherworldliness
    And one day this might hurt me less
    But everybody knows I'm still down
    Don't tell me what the butcher does
    There's no need for the obvious
    So ugly, still, it's kinda lush
    But everybody knows I made vows
    Left feet on the podium
    Can't think of an alternate
    And hell yeah, I'm the awkwardest
    But everybody knows I got bounce

    (Yeah!)

    'Lone, getting high on a Saturday night
    I'm on the edge of a knife
    Nobody cares if I'm dead or alive
    Oh, what a wonderful life
    Oh, what a wonderful life
    Oh, what a wonderful life
    Nobody cares if I'm dead or alive
    Oh, what a wonderful life Writer/s: Oliver Scott Sykes, Matthew Kean, Jordan Keith Fish, Lee David Malia, Matthew Stephen Nicholls, Daniel Lloyd Davey
