lyrics

Maybe I like having a problem
Maybe I need something real important to do
So I don’t get too blue

I know there’s an answer up on the bookshelf
buried in about a billion words that I’ll never use
Guess I’ll just watch youtube

I got sick from all the information
so I got high on communication
when I got swallowed in a light
I was born last night

I got my head on I got it straight
I keep one eye on my mind
buddy that’s the last thing I wanna lose

First I got tired then I got lonely then I got lost
but buddy now I know what I oughta do
Have you heard the news?

It got heavy in the isolation
So I went looking for a revelation
that’s when I finally saw the light
I was born last night

Now I got a talisman
and I got a document
and I know the way
okay
clap clap jump jump
hip hip hooray

Hey what’s your problem
I’ll solve it
Just ask the question
and I’d like to think I’d tell you the truth
or something you could use

I’ve been practicing my contemplation
and having long one-sided conversations
man I’m bored in the light
I was born last night
