notes:
Feels like it's scripted these bumps on the way
Predictable, formulaic roadblocks, tolls to pay
The big studios never break out of the same old box
Who made you victim of their school of hard knocks?

Is your life like a television show?
Cameras and microphones with you everywhere you go
Stock characters appear to make your life a wreck
Canned laughter when you fall and break your neck

Stuck in the second act of film
Credits wont scroll yet but the seven seals will
Steadily losing ground for plot development
Chased by agents of change or from the government

Look how it starts
Look where it goes
It's so typical

Bottom of a well 
Bottom of a glass
Saved by a miracle

Sink to the depths 
Sink to your knees
Think thats cynical?

Formulaic images formulaic scenes
Steer off the road for a second
make it mean
anything at all

Break it down, break your cast
shattered protagonist 
broken to pieces
till the fabulist
reassembles him

Look how it goes
Look it will end
yeah it's visible

Bottom out Bottoms up
Head of an ass
Late for class
Late, unlamented and miserable

Everything turns out right in the final act

Written and recorded in one day February 2015
