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.

Code Monkey go to job

Code Monkey have boring meeting with boring manager Rob

Rob say Code Monkey very diligent

But his output stink

His code not functional or elegant

What do Code Monkey think

Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write ******* login page himself

Code Monkey not say it out loud

Code Monkey not crazy, just proud


Code Monkey have long walk back to cubicle

He sit down pretend to work

Code Monkey not thinking so straight

Code Monkey not feeling so great


Much rather wake up eat a coffee cake

Take bath, take nap

This job fulfilling in creative way

Such a load of crap

"Code Monkey" by Jonathon Coulton

We do what we must

Because we can.

For the good of all of us.

Except the ones who are dead.

But there's no sense crying

Over every mistake.

You just keep on trying

Till you run out of cake.


I've experiments to run

There is research to be done

On the people who are

Still alive.

"Still Alive" by Jonathon Coulton

We go round and round

From out here, it's the rest of the world that looks so small


We can only be who we are

It doesn't matter if they don't understand


Sad excuse for a sunrise

It's so cold out here

Ice and silence and dark skies

"I'm Your Moon" by Jonathon Coulton

As I spiral down into the dark

I windmill upside down


Now bits of pieces of me float by

And I die in front of everyone

"Octopus" by Jonathon Coulton

I used to be so tall and thin

Now I'm not exactly sure which phylum I'm in

And I know there's a monkey in the future for you

And there's nothing modern science can do

Keeping the thumb but I'm getting dumb

I'm devolving

"De-Evolving" by Jonathon Coulton

The other night I dreamed of Arthur


In the dream he asked the question

Do I fly or do I fall?

What's the difference

Either way he's still a dead man

And he's finally free

No longer has to be up on stage

"Bozo's Lament" by Jonathon Coulton

I'll probably be some kind of scientist

Building inventions in my space lab in space

I'll end world hunger I'll make dolphins speak

Work through the daytime, spend my nights and weekends

Perfecting my warrior robot race

Building them one laser gun at a time

I will do my best to teach them

About life and what it's worth

I just hope that I can keep them from destroying the Earth

"The Future Soon" by Jonathon Coulton
