A Modest Proposal

from by The Buildings



Sit down because I’ve been watching you all day
And I’m tired of walking down these empty streets
With no one else to meet


I got fired by my best friend’s brother
for the third time in fifteen days
he said you’ll never make it if you sing off pitch
with that dumb smile on your face

So I took my suitcase and took a lift
Down to the corner of the street
Where I saw a heavy metal band
With a vocalist like Lou Reed

Why does the world decide that good things end this way?
Why won’t you marry me before we go our separate ways?

I could wish I had a Camaro
Or I could wish for world peace
If I wasn’t so busy drawing lines
Between the faces that I meet
