I No Longer Feel Fine
Chorus: 
Contradictions,
Your double standards are an affliction.
You say that music's dead;
Yet you can't get those tunes out of your head.
But I won't be a product
Of your system.
That's what I tell myself 
To get me through the night.

Verse 1:
I didn't rhyme that last bit.
So you'll say it's bad "what I writ".
And that's the grammar that you'll use,
Well I guess, in that regard, you lose.

Chorus

Verse 2:
You say you're against misogynism.
Yet you backtrack with politicians.
Judging the cabinet by their wardrobe.
That's not a catwalk, it's a board room.

Chorus

Bridge:
Face it, you're a product
All you're looking for is money.
You're so fake
You may as well be the Duracell bunny.
You preach individuality
Through repetitive 'musicality'.
Your life is a book,
Pardon me if I don't look.

Instrumental

Synopsis
Lyrics inspired by R.E.M. Music inspired by R.E.M and Squeeze. An unlikely combination, but I believe, in these circumstances, it works. Verse 2 was inspired by a recent event here in the UK, the culprits being the Daily Mail.
A Word from the Writer
The title is inspired by R.E.M.'s "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
