lyrics

How long, how long, do I have to pretend
that the vaccine works and I truly understand?
I am always half baked, I am happy on my own
that’s a pretty strong case for staying alone
And now you are sorry you didn't finish our story
the novel's on the nightstand, and you can’t sleep
there's diagrams in margins, and passages highlighted
but it’s all in a language that you don’t speak

and you said you needed time, i was happy to oblige
you said that we should talk, but it hasn't happened yet
you want to rewind this back to the beginning
but I still don't want your video cassette
we're science fiction at its best
a case of opposites attract
and i am starring nonetheless


once upon a time we were happy with our lives
and i started to relax, turned off my survival mode
then the earthquake came and the aliens arrived
so i reached out for your hand, and i saw i was alone
this is getting old, and i am getting tired
it's hard to rewire how you think of everything
so i'm working on my commune, and i'm working on the koolaid
and i think i've finally found the perfect recipe

yes i've thought about my options, i'm really good at those
i need a deadly dose to finally forget
so please don't rewind this all to the beginning
cos i truly don’t want your video cassette
we're science fiction at its best
a case of opposites attract
and i am starring nonetheless

and how dare you keep showing up
i'm so careful to avoid that stuff
for example how hard did you try to convince me that you loved me when you didn’t give a fuck?
when i was in middle i was searching for a symbol
that's as close to forever as i'm ever gonna get
so please don't rewind this all to the beginning
cos i really can't watch that video cassette
we're science fiction at its best
a case of opposites attract
and i am starring nonetheless
