about

My first solo ska-pop-punky track. Very much in the vein of The UpTones, both musically and lyrically. Everything else about the song I think is in the lyrics!

lyrics

Everything is wrong,
Everything is wrong since you’ve been gone,
I don’t belong,
I don’t belong and everything is wrong

Everything is going straight to shite,
Been doing things that I don’t even like,
The government is married to the church,
My sweet cat died and everything is dirt

Everything is wrong,
Everything and everyone is wrong,
I took some advice,
It was good except that it was wrong

Everything is wrong,
Everything is wrong since you’ve been gone,
I don’t belong,
Now every big and little thing is wrong,

I’m not a bad dude, I want to do good,
Try my best but I can’t get along,
I do the things that my self-help books say bring happiness,
But I guess all the self-help books were wrong

I had a girlfriend who liked zen I used a pen
to write her then expressing my undying lo-ove,
She said I can’t rely on her or anybody else,
Cause none of us are defying the dust

Everything is wrong,
Everything is wrong since you’ve been gone,
I can’t go on,
I don’t belong and everything is wrong

I don’t even know what it’s about,
I can’t be certain even of my doubts,
I changed my haircut and my name,
They still got my number all the same

They’re making music with artificial intelligence
to be enjoyed by artificial life,
I’ll take it all in, watch babylon fallin’
Eatin’ popcorn with my artificial wife

Everything is wrong,
Everything is wrong since you’ve been gone,
I don’t belong,
I can’t go on and everything is wrong

Everything is wrong,
Everything and everyone is wrong,
Since you’ve been gone,
I don’t belong and everything is wrong
