Everybody's Got a Beard of Bees These Days

from the Matt Kollock album 'microorganism'


Everybody’s got a beard of bees these days 
Circus people working overtime 
Everybody knows what everybody else weighs 
Piecing it together on the climb 

Everybody’s showing off their ankles these days 
They only drink their water out of glass 
Everybody’s brewing all the IPAs 
Fancy people acting lower class 

Everybody’s navigating Hell these days 
Brandishing their blades on every street 
Everybody’s working for their meager pay 
Just to roll their eyes at what they eat 

Everybody’s wearing thicker frames these days 
Visionary beatniks see it all 
Everybody’s hip to the phrase that pays 
They have their own version of the mall 

Everybody’s getting all the highs these days 
Sneaking them into exclusive shows 
Everybody’s finding ways to be unfazed 
Cruelty wears fashionable clothes 

Everybody’s going back to nature these days 
They know how to make it in the woods 
Everybody’s in the legislature amazed 
Saying things they thought they never could 

Everybody’s got a beard of bees these days! 
Everybody’s got a beard of bees these days! 
Everybody’s got a beard of bees these days! 
Everybody’s got a beard of bees these days!
