21st century hymns

i'm tired again
i'm so tired

let's put on songs from five years ago
and dance in the lounge
for 2.08 minutes

our mouths don't work
they are dangerous anyway
so we can't try
to qualify this thing for which there are no words
or i guess that's how it seems

do your hands smell like lemons
my hands smell like lemons

i liked it when i didn't know what my reflection looked like
and now i feel way too aware of it and everything else
and all the places i see have memories
and i make attempts to imagine my face reacting

the song is over already
change it to that sad one with the slow lyrics
and we'll collapse and your head will be close to my head

can we just listen
for a while
