Every single morning as I step outside
I wonder if I'll ever feel satisfied
(I'm middle class, I'm cis and I'm white)

Feeling like a cat that's fallen in a bath
and just like on the telly, everybody laughs!
Funniest home anxiety
Lisa says I need CBT
Well I dunno, maybe she's right.

Jury’s out on whether it is cruel or kind
To force a normal life on a creative mind
I can try to cooperate
Some things are harder to tolerate

Take me as I am

How would Brian Eno learn to self improve?
Ask the Oblique Strategy cards what to do:
"Trust in the you of now"

That's such a fucking cop out,
so I draw again:
"Honor thy error as a hidden intention"
I can try to cooperate
Do you love more than tolerate?

Baby, don’t pretend
Take me as I am
Be a friend

You could be all that I needed. You could be.
