lyrics

graduate from the witness protection plan
1985
tightest shorts in the greater tri-counties
cross country skiis for life, or so he says
he smokes an alarm a day
first name basis with the chief of police
bacon and egg toupe
restraining order from his niece

hardball, briefcase, swimtrunks, bear mace, loose lips, bright shoes, hatch back, white glue, dry cleaned t-shirts, golden retriever, sports page, bath mat, eBay, hatch back

guess he's a winner that's just fine
guess he's a winner i don't mind
if we're all winners that's alright
but how do we claim our prize?
the ticket you gave me it was lost
in a fire, the sweepstakes weren't found
the motorcycle drowned
i won the life lottery but they never paid me

her cleaning lady drives a rolls royce minivan
but they both got uneven spraytans
and if it wasn't for the west coast drought
she'd never have to see her husband

champagne, white blouse, three story pool house,
fake nose and it shows and it shows when she blows
she's got trust funds, hedge funds, she's got what she wants but she wants more and she's gonna get it

guess she's a winner that's just fine
guess she's a winner i don't mind
if we're all winners that's alright
but how do we claim our prize
the ticket you gave me it was lost in a fire,
the sweepstakes weren't found,
the motorcycle drowned,
i wont the life lottery but they never paid me

she's feeling fine she feels no shame as long as she don't get caught feeling anything,
he's feeling fine he feels no pain as long as he's still got cocaine,
yr looking fine yr looking whatever whatever whatever WHATEVER
i'm feeling bland, i'm feeling beige it's the same as any other day

about

beige Toronto, Ontario

endless rows of cookie-cut subdivisions, moving backwards in rush hour.
pirouettes in the parking garage too broke for Top Ramen and it all looks beige beige beige beige beige...
