about

I wrote this song after watching a commercial morning faux news show at my parent's house. The kind where bourgeois dickheads sit around saying "tsk tsk" a lot, mainly about people more interesting than themselves. It's about celebrating that we're not them.

lyrics

Lick the spoon and lick the bowl
Let's get fat and let's get old
Drink yourself into the ground
And if you wanna take a lover take ten and then you won't be let down

Cry until the oceans burst
Tell me, have you done your worst?
Laugh, with all the mirth of sin
'Cause you'll be happy as a shooting star and equally as fated to burn

Let's get dirty, let's go dancing
They'll take pills, I'll take romancing
Don't you hang your head today
Because they've always, always, always got something, something, something to say.

It really is unfortunate
I feel I have to drink a lot
To hold a conversation
With a person that I like a lot
I was a teenage pregnancy
I haven't cleaned since I gave up speed
And even then, I never did it properly

Lily & King Melbourne, Australia

An acoustic junkyard - blissful, beautiful, dirty and wicked.
