George Clooney (song excerpt)

It’s ironic everything nowadays is touch
touch screens, iTouch but still man we’ve lost touch
you may now Instagram the bride
& plan your life through the camera’s eyes
fantasize, if only there was a filter that helped you stand beside
your lady like your Gramps even after Grandma died
the book of love is a book we never canonized
we’d rather light the wick and watch the canon fly
my father is my hero a real admirable man
always kept composure when he’d handle the fam
cook us up some eggs, maybe scramble the ham
& despite all that I still battle the man, it’s crazy man
none of us are really très bien
so how do we create a home that we can raise babies in
how do we flip a wife from a lady friend
when it seems we’re regressing as a race of homo sapiens

part of me wants to be George Clooney
never settle down, every night different groupies
trying to feed a family with a microphone
it goes two turntables and a wife at home
