The Age Of Reason

People say there’s a little yellow idol
To the north of Kathmandu
What they don’t say is I’m feeling suicidal
Social media is my new glue

So take a good look at my selfie
My rictus smile doesn’t look healthy
If you look closer you’ll see I’m in Kelty
Near Cowdenbeath
That’s a metaphor for What Lies Beneath

Since you ask, no I have not been to the doctor
I don’t like to take that route
In this age of reason
Am I being unreasonable
To say self awareness is truth

So take a good look at my selfie
My rictus smile doesn’t look healthy
If you look closer you’ll see I’m in Kelty
Near Cowdenbeath
That’s a metaphor for What Lies Beneath

Outside I’m Jean Paul Saltire
Inside I hate satire
Since you ask I’m down
My smile’s an upside down frown
A tired old cliché, but it is true

So take a good look at my selfie
My rictus smile doesn’t look healthy
If you look closer you’ll see I’m in Kelty
Near Cowdenbeath
