My Mind Is for Sale

Album: All the Light Above It Too (2017)
  • Well, I heard the blinker's on
    I heard we're changing lanes
    I heard he likes to race
    I heard there's six or seven words he likes to use
    Are always in bad taste
    And I heard that Monday's just a word we say
    Every seven times around
    And then we pin the tail on Tuesday
    Watch those strings go up and down
    The elephant in the room begins to dance
    The cameras zoom into
    His mouth begins to move
    Those hateful words he uses

    I don't care for your paranoid
    "Us against them" walls
    I don't care for your careless
    "Me first, gimme gimme" appetite at all

    And all the real estate in my mind is for sale
    It's all been subdivided
    Divided into reasons why
    My two opposing thoughts at once are fine
    The residue from the price tag
    On the tip of my tongue
    Words don't come, they go
    How many likes I gotta get
    Before I know the truth
    And the truth is
    Season three will be a great reason
    To forget all about
    Reality's a slippery slope
    Watch the TV, scream and shout it

    I don't care for your paranoid
    "Us against them", fearful kind of walls
    I don't care for your careless
    "Me first, gimme gimme" appetite at all

    Now I heard the blinker's on
    I heard we're changing lanes
    I heard we need more space
    I heard there's six or seven words are in bad taste
    It's absurd to believe that we might
    Deserve anything
    As if it's balanced in the end
    And the good guys always win

    I don't care for your paranoid
    "Us against them" fearful kind of walls
    I don't care for your careless
    "Me first, gimme gimme" appetite
    With the residue from the price tag
    On those two opposing thoughts in my mind
    Us against them fearful kind of walls Writer/s: Jack Hody Johnson
