I just made the news today
it seems that we've passed our way
Lives aren't made to be forgotten
Lies aren't what we are
We've all done better things than make mistakes
on our watch.

Verse 1
I tend to pretend that my pretense is a grievance when I turn around and look in disbelievement
Cuz the eulogy is premature So I'm sure
I don't believe in this bereavement
So don't bury me
Found a new clarity
Say it with sincerity
I'm back
Fact- Sulu take the conn
Got my own starship, the microphone is on.
Let me take you to the set yell "action"
but I'm never playing the factions
and fractions all about division
taking the Excelsior to 60s television
Precision's gonna make it
Set the navigation, got the go, can't fake it.
Instead of making marks they're making bios
ready-made obituary, time to hit dials.


Verse 2
Binary outlook on my life has got me hesitant no matter what is evident
Rocking older lyrics, shout to the past cause the past is setting precedent
We never want to forget so I turn to go get the obit
People gonna sweat so the try to omit
the stuff that don't fit now the narrative's legit
But the truth is gonna find you
hide and seek engine always will remind you
If I liked a lyric that I heard once
Gonna hear it again and you're knowing that the hunt's
never called off, so you've gotta keep searching
set the course try to be a sound merchant
for meaning, life can be demeaning
write my own story with a truth in the dreaming


I don't pay these fools no heed
Find the way in what in what I bleed
Shine a light on what I say
don't let 'em make me news
