I was nostalgic at birth
I wasn’t made for this world
I was born in the wrong time and space, son
I feel like meat in the room calling in via zoom
(From a colony up on the moon)

When you say :-

“Can I have your attention
This in an intervention"

And though it's said with affection
The Court is in session
and makes the direction to...

"Do it, do it, do it now
Get it get it get it - into your head somehow
All of those days are gone - you're getting nowt but older
So you better get to it to it to it
Spin your head around
Flip reverse and face the way your going now
Before tomorrow comes and just bends you over"

Every little thing hurts with your head in reverse
You're gonna miss your turn and boy I don't know what's worse
Never being born?
Or being nostalgic at birth?
