People II: The Reckoning is song 9 on People Who Can Eat People.
Nobody knows everything We know this to be true Everything is difficult except what’s in front of you But it’s complicated even under your nose Bullsh*t math equations Your highs and your lows
And your manic depression It comes and it goes Your parasympathetic nervous system reacts And you’re in fight or flight mode
How’s the world so small when the world is so large? And what made the world Could I please speak to who’s in charge? Everything is real But it’s also just as fake From your daughter’s birthday party To your grandmother’s wake
And your bipolar illness It comes and it goes Your parasympathetic nervous system reacts And you’re in fight or flight mode
I’ve tried to know which words to sing so many times I tried to know which chord to play And I tried to make it rhyme I tried to find the key that all good songs are in And I tried to find that notes to make that great, resounding din But there’s a bad man in everyone No matter who we are There’s a rapist and a Nazi living in our tiny hearts Child pornographers and cannibals, and politicians too There’s someone in your head waiting to f**king strangle you
So here’s to you Mrs. Robinson People love you more Oh nevermind In f**king fact Mrs. Robinson The world won’t care whether you live or die In f**king fact Mrs. Robinson They probably hate to see your stupid face So here’s to you Mrs. Robinson You live in an unforgiving place
