lyrics

After years of speculation, conspiracy theories, and tin-foil hats
It turned out the Illuminati wasn’t rumor, it’s a fact
The presidents were involved and all of Hollywood too
Your nutty religious neighbors – honestly, everyone but you

It’s lonely like a low-rent Truman Show
All of us control everything you’ve ever known

Santa Claus was just a construct to prop up the patriarchy
Your parents bought into it so the truth would remain foggy
Eyes Wide Shut was really a documentary of all the fun we have without you
C’mon, you gotta admit it’s funny

It’s lonely like a low-rent Truman Show
All of us control everything you’ve ever known
If I were kidding, I would totally tell you, bro
All of us control everything you’ve ever known

The shadow government is only there to fuck with you
And yes, all that shit on dollar bills, too
It’s the makers of Bacardi, the annoying paparazzi
The Muppets, even Fozzie? We’ve always known the truth
And we thought you’d get the picture, in fact we thought we were being blunt
Each time we all appeared successful while you felt stuck in a rut
And that’s why you don’t get pop culture, and you feel outside of us all
I have to break it to you – you are

I know it’s lonely like a low-rent Truman Show
All of us control everything you’ve ever known
If I were kidding, I would totally tell you, bro
...but, y'know.
