Lyrics

Microscope - drawing by Harvey Dog 2019

See your world through a microscope
notice the changes and dreams denied
pick the channels that soothe your soul
nothing ever changes but I’m sure you tried

C
Do you like the way you’ve lived your life
Do you change your memory for fun
Show your hand but hide the truth
Smile right at ’em and play their game

Life’s intimate passions keep you alive
focused on culture you’re so civilized
time must have a stop, but not right now
people below are so easy to despise

C
Do you like the way you’ve lived your life
Do you change your memory for fun
play the part and forget you’re smart
forget the future, make the present last

Check every detail in your life
make sure the dirt’s all swept away
take the pills that ease your mind
you know you’re in charge of today

finale
Do you like the way you lead your life
do you change your memory for fun
play the part and forget you’re smart
Smile right at ’em and play their game
Check every detail in your life
See your world through a microscope
change your memory & change your past
show your hand but hide the truth
Smile right at ’em and play their game
See your world through a microscope
show your hand but hide the truth
Smile right at ’em and play their game
See your world through a microscope


Notes

  • I loved playing this song! When the chorus hits and the intensity is elevated…man, it always felt good!
  • I’m sure some of the lyrics were directed right back towards myself…as so many are.

Written: 1998
