look at these figures on the boulevard
they are sculpted like movie stars
prosthetic busts and chiseled skin
shoes I wish I was walking in

how ominous
how ominous

my dog is waiting for her feather bed
my feed is full of pics of her getting fed
I drink a vodka before the bar
I push my chest out like I’m a star

how ominous
how ominous
how ominous
how ominous

put on the stolen gloves oh turn off the light
feel up the surgeon's scars oh so much alike

night strobes like a tv screen
shocked face only a tween
feed the followers snips and scraps
through these devices, rooms and apps

how ominous
how ominous
how ominous (to be literal)
how ominous (to be twitteral)
how ominous (to disconnect)
how ominous (to unreflect)
how ominous (the kids want more)
how ominous (never seen it before)

peel off these stolen gloves oh turn on the light
tape up the invisible scars oh so much alike
these are my american scars oh so much alike
