This Song

[TRIGGER WARNING: NUCLEAR WAR, EXTREME PESSIMISM]

Did you know that A Perfect Circle is back? They've made a new album for the first time in five years, and the first that wasn't a recording of a show in 14 years. It's called Eat the Elephant and it's coming out on April 20th.

Yeah.

The latest single is currently murdering me.



The lyrics:

Time is money and money's time
We wasted every second dime
On diets, lawyers, shrinks and apps and flags and plastic surgery
Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom, Ali, and Leia have moved on
Signal the final curtain call in all its atomic pageantry 
Bravissimo, hip hip hooray
For this fireworks display
Mind and body blown away
What a radiant crescendo! 
Ticker tape parade
Our hair and skin like
Marilyn Monroe
In an afterwind 
Time is money and money's time
We wasted every second dime
On politicians, fancy water and guns and plastic surgery
Like old Prince and Brady's mom
All the dolphins have moved on
Signaling the final curtain call in all its atomic pageantry 
Bravissimo, hip hip hooray
What a glorious display
Melt our joyous hearts away
Under the mushroom cloud confetti 
Hip hip hooray for this fireworks display
Mind and body blown away
What a radiant crescendo 
Hip hip hooray
Hip hip hooray 
Ticker tape parade
Our hair and skin like
Marilyn Monroe in an afterwind 
Time is money and money's time
We wasted every second dime
On diets, lawyers, shrinks and apps flags and plastic surgery
Now Willy Wonka, Major Tom, Ali and Leia have moved on
Signal the final curtain call in all its atomic pageantry

Melt our joyous hearts away.
