lyrics

They ask what I'm doing with my life in a CV form.
So how to expose established norms in established forms?

A socialist realism isn't quite what I'm going for,
so I didn't resolve my leading tones in what came before!

Wave your flashlight around -
the world will not be astounded though it's astounding -
you're compounding the problem!

(or, elitism,
or classism
or sexism -
at the very least, it takes a LOT OF MONEY)

yes, I have been highly trained, I know
I scrape by, and rely on my credentials.
The general public couldn't care less about Beethoven's potential.

F U F U institutions!
Solely intellectual
(male sexual)
no urgency is useless!

I have to give credit where the credit's due:
this elitism just plainly sucks.
'Cause everyone that I know is so tired of being treated like an idiot.

DUH!

Music's from the heart!
So what's the point of my ridiculous Avatar?
