lyrics

Set yourself a little task
See if you pass it
Seems like if you've got a brain
You'll be unsatisfied
What good's sensitivity
If you're constantly set upon?
What good's sensitivity
If it makes you lonesome
And unsatisfied?

My imagination made me sad
Where is all the good that they talk about?
They said if I work real hard I'd be
They said if I work real hard I'd be
They said if I work real hard I'd be
Happy.

Tsundoku they said you were the one
Joked I'd save on my heating bill
So I became a literal anchorite
And I bought insulation
Now I've got certificates
Now I've got a gown and some fur
I've been making paper all my life
But I ain't feeling satisfied
Or warm.

My imagination left me cold
Where is all the good that I was told about?
They said if I work real hard I'd be
They said if I sacrificed to thee
They said if I tried and tried and tried I might be
Happy.

My imagination made me sad
Where is all the good that they talk about?
They said if I work real hard I'd be
They said if I work real hard I'd be
They said if I tried and tried I'd be
Happy.

Set yourself a little task
See if you pass it.
