lyrics

"File save
& drag your mouse
drag it in your lungs & hold it
Harassment is Spellcheck
Spellcheck is Harassment
I'm going to get my fix

No need
to thank your buttons
for fastening your shirt
they do good work
& they know they do good work

It's like shuffling polaroids
to build a house of cards
exposing my friends to being broken & bent
it's time to glue-stick

With your skip two
& your skip-to...
& fast forward
& your pause
your dirty paws
rewind the order

File save
& minimize
minimize the damage done
I forgot to write the date in
the water log
I'm a terrible captain

No need
to thank your parasol
for making you high-class
it does all it's groveling
from above your head
to make you think you've got a grip

Keep at ten & two & under eighty
Keep knocking 'til they answer

I will hide my face forever
to pretend I'm not a kid"
