The surgeon looking down, to find you looking up


Here's to the crypto currency kings as if it changes a single thing
They'll have all the money in the world yet never feel a thing.

Here's to twenty years of friendship
That doesn't mean a thing
Ignoring people in public to poke them on a screen

Heres to the non believers
Who send their thoughts and prayers
Bottoms up to the non achievers who finally finished third by a hair

Here's to nothing in particular
The spectacular mundane
See the lady in the red knee high boots
She was once a man named Shane

Here's to virtual reality a utopian shoot em up
Instead of escaping the never ending pain
We'd just rather not have to move that far

Here's to ingenious life hackers That duvet was always a pain to get back on
Putting lego on my keys
Man where did this spare time come from?

Here's to the feminisation of masculinity and of course the masculisation of femininity
Are we not still playing the same game but everyone's swapped teams?

Here's to those teenage dreams
That keep us standing still
Scared to put a single foot wrong Fuck those castles on the hills

If you really want my advice
I'll only say one thing
Getting lost is optional
But failure is key
To become whoever you think it is that you want to be.

So here's to a brief moment of enlightenment
That's a bit like the surgeon looking down to find you looking up

Oh my god, doc this one's wide awake
Surely we can't leave them like this
Please give them something for the pain or to at least forget.
