Metric - Doomscroller LYRICS

Lining up all the numbers under the names

Lining up all the numbers under the names

Notify the next of kin of the circumstances

Was it an act of god or an accident

An act of god or an accident

Or a consequence of a lower profile

Salt of the earth underpaid to serve you

Salt of the earth underpaid to serve

and teach your children

Salt of the earth underpaid to serve

and scrub the toilet

Salt of the earth underpaid to serve

and scrub the toilet

Ruling classes trickle piss

From champagne glasses

That’s just how the evening passes

For a true doomscroller

And I’m a true doomscroller

I cant seem to shut it down

Until the worst is over

And it’s never over

 

Arrogance of a coward hostile

Scum of the earth overpaid to rob you

Scum of the earth overpaid to rob

and mock resistance

Scum of the earth overpaid to rob

Anonymously from a distance

Scum of the earth overpaid to rob Anonymously

Ruling classes trickle piss

From champagne glasses

History on repeat relapses

For a true doomscroller

 

Dog whistle links to a torch song

Torch song links to a statue burning

Moon landing links to Q Anon

Rabbit in a deep hole keep on dancing

 

Don’t give up yet

Don’t give up yet

Don’t give up yet

Don’t give up now

 

Lining up all the numbers under the names

Lining up all the numbers under the names

Boy, I’m a true doomscroller

I’m a true doomscroller

I can’t seem to shut it down

Until the worst is over

And it’s never over

 

Don’t give up yet

Don’t give up yet

Don’t give up yet

Don’t give up now

 

Take something for the pain

Not something to conceal it

More like a magnification mirror full-size

Inner echo reflecting solace revived

 

Whatever you do

Either way we’re gonna love you

Never mattered

Either way we’re gonna love you

Whatever you do

Either way we’re gonna love you

Never mattered

How many or how much more

You’ve been through

 

Take this for the heartache

Not some cure to negate it

More like a magnification mirror full-size

Inner reverberation happens outside

Whatever you do

Either way we’re gonna love you

Never mattered

Either way we’re gonna love you

Whatever you do

Either way we’re gonna love you

Never mattered

How many or how much more

You’ve been through

Come back to yourself from the battle
