Lyrics

Standing in my friend’s kitchen about to cook some beans
It’s the day after Christmas, there are no leaves left on the trees
News comes on the radio, it’s the first that I’ve heard in weeks
They’re talking about the world I live in but it doesn’t have anything to do with me

Suddenly I feel like life is a movie and honestly I just don’t get it
Surely you’d think with all these billions of people we could come up with something better

Oh I’m waiting for the boil... it won’t take very long
The water is already hot and the beans are so very small

Oh I feel like the whole world is losing its mind
Am I the only one who notices that we’re even alive?

My friend has got all the amenities in her beautiful brand new home
Pots and pans and utensils and a big screen you can see from the stove
A yule log is burning steady but it doesn’t give off any heat
It just flickers on the TV while Muzak plays on repeat

And I feel like if my life is a movie then it’s time for the credits to roll
Cause if this is the happy ending now that I’ve seen it I’m ready to go back home

Yeah I feel like the whole world has lost its mind
And I’m the only one who notices that it’s all a big lie
Oh I feel like the whole world has lost its mind
And I’m the only one who notices that we’re all gonna die
