Courtney Barnett - Pedestrian At Best Lyrics

I love you
I hate you
I'm on the fence
It all depends whether I'm up I'm down
I'm on the mend trendsetting on reality

I like you despise you admire you
What are we gonna do when everything all falls through?
I must confess I've made a mess of what should be a small success
I digress at least I've tried my very best
I guess this that the other
Why even bother ?
It won’t be with me on my death bed
But I’ll still be in your head

Put me on a pedestal and I'll only disappoint you
You tell me I'm exceptional
And I promise to exploit you
Give me all your money
And I'll make some origami ,honey
I think you're a joke
But I don't find you very funny

My internal monologue is saturated analog
It's scratched and drifting
I've become attached to the idea
It's all a shifting dream bittersweet philosophy
I've got no idea how I even got here

I'm resentful
I'm having an existential time crisis
What bliss daylight savings won’t fix this mess under worked and oversexed ?
I must express my disinterest
The rats are back inside my head
What would Freud've said?

Put me on a pedestal and I'll only disappoint you
You tell me I'm exceptional
And I promise to exploit you
Give me all your money
And I'll make some origami, honey
I think you're a joke
But I don't find you very funny

I want to wash out my head with turpentine cyanide
I dislike this internal diatribe
When I try to catch your eye
I hate seeing you crying in the kitchen
I don't know why it makes me like this
When you're not even mine to consider erroneous harmonious
I'm hardly sanctimonious dirty clothes
I suppose we all outgrow ourselves
I'm a fake
I'm a phony
I'm awake
I'm alone
I'm homely
I'm a Scorpio

Put me on a pedestal and I'll only disappoint you
You tell me I'm exceptional
And I promise to exploit you
Give me all your money
And I'll make some origami, honey
I think you're a joke
But I don't find you very funny

Put me on a pedestal and I'll only disappoint you
You tell me I'm exceptional
And I promise to exploit you
Give me all your money
And I'll make some origami, honey
I think you're a joke
But I don't find you very funny
