  • Beyond a sacred cow
    Stand up, take a bow
    You're wonderful
    You should be comfortable, don't think at all
    Just don't think at all, think at all
    Now, now you're digging around
    What will you write about?
    How did you find that out?
    You get paid, don't need any respect
    Senses fading, she's no lady

    Oh, we've made a mistake
    We've lost our minds
    We've lost our memory
    Oh, what's it gonna take?
    There's always something else
    Waiting on the shelf

    You could be president
    You never paid the rent but I don't mind
    You got no reason to [?]
    It can't be good enough
    (Good enough)

    Now, now you're throwing the stone
    You never simplify
    Somebody stretch your eye
    What will you say
    With that mind of your own
    Are we ready?
    Hold it steady

    Oh, we've made a mistake
    We've lost our minds
    We've lost our memory
    Oh, what's it gonna take?
    There's always something else
    So occupy yourself

    I saw the world today
    It comes in green and gray
    Refrigerator humming
    Chewing gum and instant karma
    The wars are whoring
    All the stores are bored with all your money
    We follow what's to come
    That's what they sold to me

    Now, now you're throwing the stone
    You never simplify
    Somebody stretch your eye
    What will you say
    With that mind of your own
    Are we ready?
    Hold it steady

    Now, now you're throwing the stone (oh, we've made a mistake)
    We've lost our minds (you never simplify)
    We've lost our memory (somebody stretch your eye)
    What will you say
    With that mind of your own (oh, what's it gonna take?)
    There's always something else
    Are we ready?
    Waiting on the shelf
    Hold it steady Writer/s: ALEXANDER JAMES TRIMBLE, KEVIN STEPHEN BAIRD, MATTHEW SAMUEL HALLIDAY
