here’s the neon dreaming city of the future that we always promised you
And the dizzy busy streaming crowds of people that you couldn’t bear to lose

The noose around your neck’s a ruse
to keep you focused on the ground beneath your complicated shoes

Do you really mind if I do?

When she slid into my office I was vaping out the window like a tool
She said, what they’re skimming off the top is not the only way for you to break the rules

The noose around your neck’s a ruse
It must be tough to eat your breakfast with that complicated spoon

Do you really mind if I do?

No one uses fax machines,
But call you’ll hear the noise
Statues left by ancient Greeks
The perfect cheeks of goddesses and boys
piled in the closet, broken toys

I’ve been staying up all night just looking for a way to beat the coffee blues,
She’s been looking for a fight, I scan the headlines for her name, the morning news

The noose around your neck’s a ruse
So would you like to take a walk beneath the complicated moon?

Do you really mind that I do?

I do
