Lyrics

All of us waitin', anticipating
As I dictate every move
You gotta stop painting, stop that ???
And give us one thing that you drew
Careers are overrated, totally outdated
And yes, titles, they're just abused
You say you're frustrated, your work is overated
But really, who do you show it to?

It's always up to you
And you should go away for a while
There is no need for you to be a sensible child
'Cause we're not on trial
So, Monica, smile
Yeah

The two of us are naked
We're in a bar wasted
Somewhere off the avenue
I look at you sighing
No need to be crying
Hell, the world is not like you
You lost your passion
Well, passions are fashion
And anyways, what good does fashion do?
You wanna be ???
Stop composin'
Hey, but the future ain't got nothing new

It's always up to you
And you should go away for a while
There is no need for you to be a sensible child
'Cause we're not on trial
So, Monica, smile
Yeah

It's always up to you
It's always up to you

And you should go away for a while
There is no need for you to be a sensible child
'Cause we're not on trial
So, Monica, smile
Yeah

It's always up to you

All of us waitin', anticipating
As I dictate every move
The two of us are naked
In a bar, wasted
And they wonder why we withdrew
