lyrics

Village settles in for a long night
The insult to injury starts to pile on
And all that sunshine left with such low light
Cameras up high, the plot's all but lost

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time

New low in dumbing down
We'll reach at this rate
Got your attention with flashy headlines
Reelin' in clicks right now with this new bait
Culture is aging but ain't no fine wine

No more fake love
Don't want all of this fake love
So much fake love
We're all that we can think of

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time

No more fake love
Don't want all of this fake love
A temporary hug
Don't want all of this fake love

No more fake love
Don't want all of this fake love
A narcissist's best drug
We're all that we can think of

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time

But check the aesthetic
The surface is electric
Is this thing on now?
A mild anesthetic to treat ya
It'll wear off in a little while
Just focus on the pretty and shiny
Blur the image in the background
We dropped sympathetic and found
The perfect setting for some me time
