Black Belt

Album: Pale Green Ghosts (2013)
  • You are at the height of your game, aren't you
    Would you not say that you agree baby
    You got your grift all fine tuned and sparkling
    Yeah you got your bored look all worked out
    You are all enlightened, nothin' makes you frightened
    You ain't got no time to waste on entry-level middle class
    You are supercilious, pretty and ridiculous
    You got really good taste, you know how to cut and paste

    What you got is a black belt in BS
    But you can't hawk your pretty wares up in here anymore
    Hit your head on the playground at recess
    Etch-a-sketch your way out of this one reject

    You know how to get what you want, don't you
    Would you not say that you agree baby
    You really think that you can school me in semantics
    I can't recommend that baby, I see through your antics
    You think you're mysterious, you cannot be serious
    You got lots of time to think of new ways to deceive yourself
    You are callipygian, but look at the state you're in
    You got really nice clothes, bet you didn't pay for those

    [Repeat x5]
    What you got is a black belt in BS
    But you can't hawk your pretty wares up in here anymore
    Hit your head on the playground at recess
    Etch-a-sketch your way out of this one reject Writer/s: JOHN GRANT, BIRGIR THORARINSSON
