A Better Personality

Track 2 from the album Letters to Cyril Connolly.

I've been debating with myself for half an hour
And using all the hot water in the shower
Sometimes there's such a thing as too much choice
And other times you seem to lose your voice
And what if you get sucked into a crazy cult
Or the politicians fuck it all up
Is there somewhere you can buy
A better personality
A nicer pair of eyes to dry
A better view for them to see
Don't poke your finger in my chest and make a frown
You know I've given you a place where you're safe and sound
You're better than you know at causing pain
And people try to beat you but they lose the game
And nothing they can do can ever fix the rules
Since the politicians fucked it all up
