lyrics

Sweep me underneath the rug pretend I'm dead, pretend I don't exist

Never should have gotten out of bed I knew it was, it was a mistake

Watch the seasons pass by at sixty five
On the morning drive
Worry down the edge force fed
The rounded peg has finally set

Where you live is who you are
What you watch is who you are
What you buy is who you are
It’s who you are, it’s who you are

The man who thinks he's my boss tells me I'm late
But I'm not even here
He keeps talking but I haven't heard a word
He's said for a year

What you drive is who you are
Where you park is who you are
What you make is who you are
It’s who you are, it’s who you are

I microwave my three squares a day
But still I run out of time
Unwind online non-stop window-shopping
For a life outside

There's no need to reflect hold up the mirror
And check for a breath
Take two capsules prescribed at night
And call if symptoms persist

Where you go is who you are
Where you went is who you are
Who you know is who you are
It’s who you are, it’s who you are
