lyrics

This life is like watching a movie you know the ending to
The protagonist always gets his way in the end
This life is like watching a movie you know the ending to
But you sit transfixed nonetheless

Some say the unexamined life is not worth living
I say I could use some microscopic inspection in mine

And what will we do if all the buildings cave in?
Begin again
And what will I do if today falls through in the end?
Begin again

This life is an idiot box your parents let babysit you
You're always too young to understand what's happening
This life is an idiot box your parents let babysit you
It sucks your soul away minute by minute

Some say the unexamined life is not worth living
I say I could use some new perspective in mine

And what would you do if I left and never came back
Begin again
And what will I do after I talk to you for the last time?
Begin again

Some say the unexamined life is not worth living
I'm through with wearing blinders all the time
Some say the unexamined life is not worth living
So examine your own before you start in on mine

This life...

This life is like watching a movie you know the ending to
But you sit transfixed nonetheless
