Karma police, arrest this man,
He talks in maths it,
Buzzes like a fridge it's,
Like a detuned radio.

Karma police, arrest this girl,
Her hitler hairdo,
Is making me feel ill,
And we have crashed her party now.

This is what you get,
When you mess with us.

Karma police, I've given all I can,
It's not enough,
I've given all I can but
We're still on the payroll.

This is what ou get,
When you mess with us.

Phew, for a minute there,
I lost myself, I lost myself.

For a minute there,
I lost myself, I lost myself.


Phew for a minute there,
I lost myself,
I lost myself...

    General CommentYou wake up. First thing's first; you go to your computer to check your facebook. As you scroll down your news feed, you quickly read off one post after another. Some posts have meaning and could be deemed rationally appropriate, whereas other posts imply a subtle deception, in which you can deduce that what truly motivated your friends to share their posts was not something out of necessity that would warrant such an action, but out of an emotional loneliness hungry for some likes and comments from other humans beings. Of course, being the thoughtful and perfect individual that you are, you pick up on this subtlety and, for a moment, find the behaviors of some of your friends to be a bit distasteful. "Lame.", you think to yourself.

    Later that night before going to bed, you throw on your headphones, sit at your computer, and jam to some beautiful Radiohead tunes. Their music makes you think (like always). You realize something about life that you had previously been unaware of. You've just gained 10 points of wisdom. In a good mood, you sign onto facebook to see what the latest word is from all of your friends. There isn't much of an update, and within seconds you're bored. Your mind involuntarily shifts focus onto something else: your upcoming wedding that's in less than 1 week!!! You think all kinds of pleasant thoughts, and worry about all kinds of silly things. You've yet to sign off of facebook though, and so before signing off, because you didn't post anything earlier, you impulsively decide to post a status: "Omggg so excited, I can't believe it's only days away!! Bed early, I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow. Getting my nails done and trying on my dress first thing in the morning!! Jayna, call me as soon as you wake up tomorrow, and Tanisha, msg me about that thing we talked about earlier ;). Sooo can't wait to spend the rest of my life with the man of my dreams!!! :) :) :) <3 <3 <3. Gnite everyone!!!!!!". You sign off and within seconds, all of your single friends now despise you just a bit more than they did this morning. "What an obnoxious bitch.", they think to themselves.
