"Twenty-Twenty Surgery" as written by and Adam Burbank/mascherino Lazzara....
I'll take with me every single luxury when I leave you
Count on me for that and nothing more
- Count on me for that and nothing more
The view from this side's not what
The view from this side's not what
I thought it'd be, promise something differently
Close our eyes and let go of the wheel

It's not the quanity that bothers me
No it's not the quanity that bothers me
No it's not the quality that bothers me

It's the means, twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap dollar signs are a, for picture perfect point of view
Twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap, dollar signs are a, for picture perfect point of view

Well all young children listen, 'cause they got so much to learn
- Turn it in, turn it in
We'll get you home in time, to make them wretched be for free for being me

It's not the quanity that bothers me
- No it's not the quanity that bothers me
No it's not the quality that bothers me..

It's the means, twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap dollar signs are a, for picture perfect point of view
Twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap, dollar signs are a, for picture perfect point of view

- You do, you don't, you do, you don't
Would you like to think that?
You do, you don't, you do, you don't
Would you like to think that?
You do, you don't, you do, you don't
Would you like to think that?

It's the means, twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap dollar signs are a, for picture perfect point of view
Twenty-twenty surgery
Well, twenty-twenty surgery
For cheap, dollar signs are a, for picture perfect point of view

You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.
You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.
You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.
You're so sensitive
I am, I am a machine.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure TBS could care less about cosmetics, or surgeries, or hollywood drama... this is about a relationship/girl turning out to be something/someone totally different than what was thought, and now the person is "opening his eyes for the first time" so to speak.

    General CommentLines in the first verse are
    "The view from this sides not what, the view from this sides not what" instead of ...
    "If you come this side, it's not what
    If you come this side, it's not what"

    Also before the chorus, instead of saying
    "Its in me" he says "Its the means"

    General CommentUsing money to make up for the flaws inherent in all of us. In this case, the metaphor is eye surgery to regain perfect vision. Perhaps? That's my take. Giving Adam Lazarra the benefit of the doubt, maybe his lyrics suck, but I saw that metaphor.

    General Commentawesome song. i think it goes deeper than just eye surgery. i believe it's talking about cosmetic surgery as a whole to make a person look better. "cheap dollar signs doll up a picture perfect point of view". making the person perfect in the eyes of everyone else. in other words, beautiful and what everyone wants to be. and now anyone can get this cause there are cosmetic surgeons everywhere.
