lyrics

An Ernie poster surveys
Some different pressings crossfade
The waning sounds duller by the day
The waxing piercingly play

Obsolescence is my fate
'Cause as my joys dissipate
Out walking I notice less and less
And the world reciprocates

When I was young I believed in canons
A hierarchy of praise
Trapped at the bottom, I grow less certain
Like a free market it's alluring
While everything's still in play
Instead the hair on the head's now thinner and gray...

And flailing I fall offstage
I still had lots of lines left to say
But they continue their play

Obsolescence is my fate
'Cause as my joys dissipate
My turning head fixates less and less
And the world reciprocates

When I was young I believed in canons
A hierarchy of praise
No longer chosen, my faith is shaken
Like a free market it's alluring
While everything's still in play
But now I'm trying hats there might still be a way...
