Lawrence Arms Presenting: The Dancing Machine Lyrics

Last updated: 01/31/2005 10:00:00 AM

Day One has just begun,
I'm burnt, broken, dazed and numb.
Beginnings feel more like ends.
Friends feel less and less like friends.
Shake, shake, shake, shake off another dumb mistake.
I'm stupider than you, you can see it in my face.
See it in my sloping brow and forehead,
I'm missing all the misses 'cause I'm stone dead.
We're fuck ups and perverts and dickweeds and drunks,
Drowing in rivers chained into trunks.
This new work is awkward, I don't like the lines.
I hate all the people with pinpointed eyes.

Shake, shake, shake, shake off another dumb mistake.
I'm stupider than you, you can see it in my face.

Fuck what we say and all that we do,
I'm saving myself for something beautifully true.
