Never What You Need

from Shitty Nuggets by Jonathan Segel



never what you want
never what you need
never the right way
never what it seems
then they take you down another road
but it’s not where you want to be
never what you need
then they sell you some new shiny toy
but it’s never what need
never the right thing
but here’s a new part this one’ll gonna work
but it’s never gonna be exactly the right thing

First you gotta get the thing that everybody needs
You have to deal with the world through the feeds

All the newest ways to get in between you and what you need to do
Every step of the way takes their cut, just dipping their beak, the burden's back on you

There's no easy step to take to fix the shit that's broke
We end up with piles of toxic trash till we choke
Planned obsolescence pulls a bigger cut for sales
Never mind the waste
You wanted to keep what you had, you say?
Sorry man, you're gonna have to upgrade
To something you don't want
