Someone's taught the cat to moonwalk and it's become a real show-off.
The party's already falling apart but we all play along it's rolling on.
The host eyeballs the fire alarm. Our welcome's become undone.
The party's already falling apart but we all play along it's rolling on.

TV's on, volumes down, anchormen guest star on each other's shows.
We're listening to field recordings of gleaners singing in some ex-Soviet state.
And hope's shadow's shape may change like names
But doing what you want will never pay well.

Someone's peanut-buttered the poor cat's paws.
I've misunderstood him all along.
And hope's shadow's shape may change like names
But doing what you want will never pay well.

    General CommentI thought this song was about Tims view on his situation in the "music industry"

    And hope's shadow's shape may change like names
    But doing what you want will never pay well.


    Someone taught the cat to moonwalk, hes become a real showoff
    Someone peanut buttered the poor cats paws, i misunderstood him all along

    I thought that was about Owen.

    TV's on, volumes down, anchormen guest star on each other's shows
    i thought that was about mike and tim kinsella.

    I could be very very very very wrong. haha
