Moron (The Flarsh)

from by Scott Deadelus

lyrics

I used to write how I didn’t believe in love
And I’d sing about girls and gods and politics
But always thought it was all fiction
And I’d listen to love songs by Rivers Cuomo
Thought it was the right way, to be lonely
So I didn’t bother much with girls
Oh, why'd it have to hit me now?
In the too late youth of my life
That love is actually real
And that it hurts more than Roy Orbison told me

Oh, why do the birds sing their songs?
Oh, why can’t the people get along?
And why do I feel like such a moron
When I write songs like everyone?

Now I feel as if I’m singing like a top 40 shmuck
I feel like Taylor Swift or something writing about a breakup
I hope the few people who like my music can forgive me
Cause my inner critic can barely stand me anymore
I wish somebody would just kill me
Cause I’m too cowardly for suicide
Though I complain nearly all the time
There’s something I like about being alive

Oh, why do the birds sing their songs?
Oh, why can’t people get along?
And why do I feel like such a moron
When I try to write songs just like everyone?
