But Not For Us

lyrics

The cat’s in the cold cuts, she’s resourceful that way
There is nothing I can do, the world is her footpath
The brakes on my bike just gave out in the rain,
So I decided to hold on for dear death,

‘Cause the best minds have been bought,
Then destroyed, then laid off,
Then replaced with less expensive models
The best we can do now
Is watch waters rise and then
Laugh at our obsolete goals

The cat’s in the pantry, and the fish are on their own,
Adrift in this world, with no corporate sponsor
The stakes got so high that they toppled to the ground,
Now we’re alone in our fight to stick together

‘Cause the best minds have been bought,
Then destroyed, then laid off,
Then replaced with less expensive models
The best we can do now
Is watch waters rise and then
Laugh at our obsolete goals

I bet we’ll miss being human,
Miss our power of language,
But some DNA must linger
As life carries on
