Deep Fry

lyrics

The tubes are packed with people moving at alarming speeds
the ants in the hill have all got their own hopes & needs
their lips move to the music pumping straight into their brains
their eyes avoid the gazes of the others on the trains

The air is filled with deep fry, weird vibes, and wi-fi
it's a stew of human energy
is there room for me in this city?

There's nothing you can show me that I ain't already seen
my life has flashed before me on a thousand little screens
and it broke my heart to find out that the sweet things that you said to me
were lines that you stole right out of some movie

Everyone is such a hypocrite and they don't realize
they speak in absolutes and they all generalize
it's such a hassle being so much smarter than everyone around
don't they know how full of themselves they sound?

The air is filled with deep fry, weird vibes, and wi-fi
it's a stew of human energy
is there room for me in this city?

What's your name?
Where are you from?
What do you do?

Where did you go to school?
What have you done?
Who exactly do you think you are?
