lyrics

S. Morganstern
featuring ginzuintriplicate
(J. Ward SOCAN, J. McDonald SOCAN, T. Manning)

Life is pain, princess,
Anyone says different's a fraud.
Everybody hurts like REM said
Welcome to reality, see times is hard!

Every which way I look, I see struggles
Deep troubles, delinquency, blink and see doubles
From infancy into adulthood, even elders have a
Future so dark it's likewearing a welder's mask
When they tell you that, the laughter and the clapping's like a
Real smug told-you-so after the fact.
Every happy distraction haphazardly masking the
Casual tragedies snaps me right back to them

Villainous society, I’m all the way speechless
Seeing refugee children dead on far-away beaches
Partisan parody got ‘em lying for Jesus
Make America greater by disregarding the pieces
Cease this. Everything is empty at the pinnacle
Sometimes just existing is so difficult
I got mouths to feed, and they look up to me
So no, I don’t sleep to dream. That’s just a luxury

Life is pain, princess,
Anyone says different's a fraud.
Everybody hurts like REM said
Welcome to reality, see times is hard!

Got a king hell headache and it’s this big
No aspirin, I’m walking with a split wig
Everywhere around me, the talking heads defying sense
Nauseous all the way from Fox News to CNN
I got blues. People line their pockets telling not-truths
Knock the children off the Medicare for stock dues
They blame it on immigrants, blame it on feminists
Blame it on Black Lives that didn’t Matter when they said it did

It's water through a sieve, I wanna be positive
But I'm not religious, so I forget but I do not forgive
Something's gotta give says all litigious laws of physics
But I'm a politician, not a model citizen
If I could bottle bitterness, I'd make a dollar a minute
For all infinity, the smallest business is solipsism
But criticism's got its limits
I hit a wall of solid brick, this can't be all there is, my god

Life is pain, princess,
Anyone says different's a fraud.
Everybody hurts like REM said
Welcome to reality, see times is hard!

Life is, for some people, unbearable
You only live once and you’re calling it hell
Life is complicated
You mock my pain
Life is pain for some people
You only live once and you’re calling it hell
Life is complicated
Life is pain, Highness
Life is, for some people, unbearable
Life is pain and that’s terrible

Welcome to reality, see times is hard!
