Amused

We’ve gambled our whole lives on plans that we’ll never pull off
Waving the sun down on wasted afternoons

It fits you well to be so amused
But I never could sit still for too long

Now street lights are glowing, the trees are all out of control
We’ve learned something different, a language better than our own

It fits you well to be so amused
But I never could sit still for too long

But don’t you wait for things to change
I’m a worried kind, but I’ve tried too keep it off my mind

So now things are quiet aside from a ceiling fan hum
The alarm clock is blinking, it forgot what time it was

It fits you well to be so amused
But I never could sit still for too long

But don’t you wait for things to change
I’m a worried kind, but I’ve tried too keep you off my mind

Time isn’t flowing, it’s just pictures that we take
And attribute a meaning to cushion a mortal fate

In black and white
On laptop screens
You’re gonna die
So don’t you wait
