Talkin' Compensation

"A safe, unexciting place to reach one's peak"

Weary Jubilee

Tiresome formalities
Trying to lay hold of me
Travel-worn idolatries
Pointless battles pointless themes
Played-out relentless schemes
Jaded faded philosophies
Yesterday handed down to me
I can't breathe set me free

Hear me screamin'
Somebody help me please
The crowd's leavin'
This weary jubilee

Tiresome formalities
Got no force no energy
Burnt-out beat-up legacies
Drained of former gaiety
Launching into further mimes
I can't do this one more time
Suicide the final crime
Bury me now I'm too weary to climb

See 'em reachin'
I see 'em screamin' homilies
And I see 'em peakin'
In this weary jubilee

Tiresome formalities
Dismal dreary beige routine
Minutiae keep on pullin' strings
We're all about the same old things
Past exhaustive to bothersome
Past addiction and on to numb
He said our yoke is light
He said He'd set us free
But we keep runnin' back runnin' back to captivity

Hear me screamin'
Won't somebody help me please
Before I sto believen'
This weary jubilee

Hear me beggin'
Jesus Jesus I'm on my knees
We gotta stop playin'
In this weary jubilee

We gotta stop playin'
In this weary jubilee
The crowd's leavin'
This weary jubilee
The crowd's leavin
This weary jubilee
Noe take a bow...The crowd's leavin'
