Online Pictures

Let’s not make it a secret
Why don’t you show a little backbone
A little compromising: instant exhaustion come all over you

When you think you struck oil today
Uncovered, romancing
As empty as a promise, a Hollywood ending is spared for you

But you could come back if you’d really want to
You could come back if you’d really want to

You’re used to being the caboose
And sure you’re chronically disgruntled
The space opera and the anime girls are what pull you through

Underneath the artificial lights
A perfect world at your disposal
Throw a charm and witness guaranteed pay-off every single move

And you could come back if you’d really want to
No problem coming back if you’d really want to

Droid vocal:
So I’m scanning online pictures, watching countdowns on my screen
Better keep the blinds shut in order to avoid catastrophes
While I’m talking to myself and keeping records of nocturnal victories
La lalala

So ignored it’s ridiculous
The competition is killing
It’s ugly, means working twice for the money to pay the rent

Who wants the tiresome conversations?
(Can I buy) a hide away from the businessmen (somewhere)?
And feel alive like Chanel No. 5 on the weekends

Droid vocal:
So I’m scanning online pictures, watching countdowns on my screen
My only fun is kicking in skulls, watching other people bleed
Some people backpack through Asia, I’d rather beat Federer on my Wii
La lalala

But you could come back if you’d really want to
Hey, you could come back if you’d really want to
You could come back (to the tiresome conversations)
You could come back
