Everybody's Fool

Everybody's Fool lyrics

perfect by nature
icons of self indulgence
just what we all need
more lies about a world that

never was and never will be
have you no shame don't you see me
you know you've got everybody fooled

look here she comes now
bow down and stare in wonder
oh how we love you
no flaws when you're pretending
but now i know she

never was and never will be
you don't know how you've betrayed me
and somehow you've got everybody fooled

without the mask where will you hide
can't find yourself lost in your lie

i know the truth now
i know who you are
and i don't love you anymore

it never was and never will be
you don't know how you've betrayed me
and somehow you've got everybody fooled

it never was and never will be
you're not real and you can't save me
somehow now you're everybody's fool

Me too - I think it was underated and I wondered why they didn't release this as a single.

I, too, have lyrics that I'm convinced were written for or about me. But my tastes run toward Jonathon Coulton.<br />
<br />
Code Monkey go to job<br />
Code Monkey have boring meeting with boring manager Rob<br />
Rob say Code Monkey very diligent<br />
But his output stink<br />
His code not functional or elegant<br />
What do Code Monkey think<br />
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write ******* login page himself<br />
Code Monkey not say it out loud<br />
Code Monkey not crazy, just proud<br />
...<br />
Code Monkey have long walk back to cubicle<br />
He sit down pretend to work<br />
Code Monkey not thinking so straight<br />
Code Monkey not feeling so great<br />
...<br />
Much rather wake up eat a coffee cake<br />
Take bath, take nap<br />
This job fulfilling in creative way<br />
Such a load of crap<br />
<br />
"Code Monkey" by Jonathon Coulton<br />
<br />
We do what we must<br />
Because we can.<br />
For the good of all of us.<br />
Except the ones who are dead.<br />
But there's no sense crying<br />
Over every mistake.<br />
You just keep on trying<br />
Till you run out of cake.<br />
...<br />
I've experiments to run<br />
There is research to be done<br />
On the people who are<br />
Still alive.<br />
<br />
"Still Alive" by Jonathon Coulton<br />
<br />
We go round and round<br />
From out here, it's the rest of the world that looks so small<br />
...<br />
We can only be who we are<br />
It doesn't matter if they don't understand <br />
...<br />
Sad excuse for a sunrise<br />
It's so cold out here<br />
Ice and silence and dark skies<br />
<br />
"I'm Your Moon" by Jonathon Coulton<br />
<br />
As I spiral down into the dark<br />
I windmill upside down<br />
...<br />
Now bits of pieces of me float by<br />
And I die in front of everyone<br />
<br />
"Octopus" by Jonathon Coulton<br />
<br />
I used to be so tall and thin<br />
Now I'm not exactly sure which phylum I'm in<br />
<br />
And I know there's a monkey in the future for you<br />
And there's nothing modern science can do<br />
Keeping the thumb but I'm getting dumb<br />
I'm devolving<br />
<br />
"De-Evolving" by Jonathon Coulton<br />
<br />
The other night I dreamed of Arthur<br />
Ex-human-cannonball<br />
In the dream he asked the question<br />
Do I fly or do I fall?<br />
What's the difference<br />
Either way he's still a dead man<br />
And he's finally free<br />
No longer has to be up on stage<br />
<br />
"Bozo's Lament" by Jonathon Coulton<br />
<br />
I'll probably be some kind of scientist<br />
Building inventions in my space lab in space<br />
I'll end world hunger I'll make dolphins speak<br />
Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends<br />
Perfecting my warrior robot race<br />
Building them one laser gun at a time<br />
I will do my best to teach them<br />
About life and what it's worth<br />
I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the Earth<br />
<br />
"The Future Soon" by Jonathon Coulton
