Push a button and happy comes out Like the sun hiding behind moving clouds Like a perfume scent you barely catch In the air your first love used to wear Push a button and happy comes out Like a breath of air when you're coming up Sometimes it's too hard to do something else Tapping away the day until you're emptied out It was there and then it left I guess I'll do it again I guess I'm lying I don't really like that If I leave tonight I might miss out on something So I Check it again Check it again Check it again Push a button and happy comes out Brain on autopilot, nodding off I think I've seen this before, I don't even know anymore I'm staring out, I'm staring past it It was there and then it left I guess I'll do it again I guess I'm lying I don't really like that If I leave tonight I might miss out on something So I Check it again Check it again Check it again

Staring Into a reflection Maybe it’s just fiction Baby what’s the difference Even When the mirror’s perfect Words still reading backwards Almost doesn’t matter Your selfie’s like a mirror aiming out Not quite what others see But how could you tell How could you tell Hoping For some sense of self Got you tied up with the masses All the same reaction Bleeding Out a little blood Sacrifice it to the gods You know someone's always watching Your selfie’s like a mirror aiming out Not quite what others see But how could you tell How could you tell

Fighting with the fatigue Last decades honoree on the marquee Breathing like the sound Of the tires tearing away from the wet concrete Who thought it would happen to me Hanging so delicately They sent you away so long Memories coming back like fakes They sent you away so long So many lost opportunities Rules bending to break Swelling in me like a close fitting dream Eyes staring through the steam Can’t shake the feeling of judgement coming Who thought it would happen to me Hanging so delicately They sent you away so long Memories coming back like fakes They sent you away so long So many lost opportunities

If you only listened enough to hear The echoes coming back all sound the same what a waste I've been listening to the words you repeat all you say is What a waste what a waste what a waste I just want to say something to you Not this other face Putting up a version of the person that You want to play Look straight away Avert a gaze
