Beautiful Things

This song might masturbate me
And it may just arouse your sympathy
But, tell me, what do we stand for
Anymore

As some might say
We’re lost in our theoretical cage
Full of ideas for our friends
But making no means to those ends

And we despise beautiful things
When at each rise we complain
About being alone in space
But our memory’s proven it’s no disgrace
Anyway, friends are easy
And the best partners are always free
Even should you have none, one, or three
Our will is only strengthened through remembering these things

So let’s plan today
Without the numb passive-aggression
The future's definitely on the line
But you'll find there’s no time to think about time

When you despise beautiful things
When at each rise you complain
About being alone in space
When your memory’s proven that it’s no disgrace
Anyway, you still have me
Whether or not you think I’m crazy
Cause I still say we’re not yet free
Because everything’s worth remembering to me
