about

From the album earlyNOP: The First Two LMNOP Albums. This track was originally issued on the independently released cassette LMNOP LMNOP.

lyrics

Are the successes we're seeking
Results of our reading
And are the lifestyles we project our breeding?
You may find that this success
Depends upon your views.

You pay attention to detail.
Avoid paying retail.
Put coins in a slot.
It reminds me of trained seals.
This reward is down an avenue
Where you were born.

And I don't want to be alone
But you're not like I thought you would be
When you're hearing me.
Alone you'll always be.
It never goes the way you suppose.
We will always be alone until we learn that
To be only one is a shock in itself.
You need somebody so you look to me for help
But we never can be what you want us to be until
Pop idealism fades and
Pop idols go away.

I wish I were a financier, a legal aid counselor,
A franchising businessman franchising millions.

Forge the value of striving, the struggling syndrome.
Get out of your bed and stand
By the window.
Do you get the point?
I want to tell you but
It's hard somehow.

And I don't want to be alone
But you're not like I thought you would be
When you're hearing me.
Alone you'll always be.
It never goes the way you suppose.
We will always be alone until we learn that
To be only one is a shock in itself.
You need somebody so you look to me for help
But we never can be what you want us to be until
Pop idealism fades and
Pop idols go away.

To be only one is a shock in itself.
You need somebody so you look to me for help
But we never can be what you want us to be until
Pop idealism fades and
Pop idols go away.
