Realities​/​Series Of Viceroys

from The Optimal Seat by Patois Counselors

lyrics

“Pick any totem, make it your own. Ramsey Lewis. Build your lexicon, brother. Nine touch nine.”
To reach. To reach the crowning block.
To reach for the crowning block of a temple, the man-made mountain top.
Viewing is a new wave action. Pick up the control; press caption.
“Whistling in distance” is the caption. It evokes a tepid reaction.
Struck dumb by real life, so we submit to reality shows.
They tuck em in saying “goodnight, tell me something only Kim would know”
Struck dumb in a real sense, no penchant for self-defense.
They tuck em in saying “good night”, alibi airtight.
Mole hills in the real life stand in for reality goals.
They’re flipping homes like hurricanes, setting that cash aflame.
Scared to death of the real life, so we submit to reality shows.
They tuck em in saying “goodnight, tell me something only Kim would know”
Got a peek at the good life, felt weird some immeasurable way.
One glimpse and we all went bust, live feed’s absolute must.
Obsessed with the good life, sipping lean in a balcony suite.
The simplest garments with exorbitant prices, a fuck boy fantasy.
