Your Movie

from Drop the Bone by David Gans

/

lyrics

He spends his whole work day unmanned and unnerved
Goes out every night for the fun he deserves
Nine times out of ten he is way overserved
And then he begins to declaim
Of conspiracies, “fake news,” and blame
And I say…

I don't want to be in your movie today
It's a role I'm not prepared to play
Don't want to be in your movie today

Coyote, there is just no comprehending
These metaphors you're trying to put in play
And when I start to feel my patience ending
That's when I know it's time to step away

You run with these preposterous assumptions
Demanding I believe it ‘cause you say
But I prefer to trust my higher functions
And focus on reality today

I don't want to be in your movie today
It's a role I'm not prepared to play
Don't want to be in your movie today

Your natterings evince no introspection
I find that there’s no reason in your rhyme
And standing here reflecting your projections
Is not the way I choose to spend my time

I don't want to be in your movie today
It's a role I'm not prepared to play
Don't want to be in your movie today
