Zero Sum Game

When two plus two is five
And the point of things is dead, not alive
Day to day I’m onto it
No matter how I strive
Just do the math
Opportunities cut in half
You take your part
I’ll take mine
Precisely torn in half

But there is no point in being this way
It’s a zero sum game
But there is no point in being this way
It’s a zero sum game

The last kid on the block
Says it is a lock
Out of town, feeling down
Need math rock
Or cubist jazz
It’s got what no one else has
Precisely keeping time
Like a syncopated clock

But there is no point in being this way
It’s a zero sum game
But there is no point in being this way
It’s a zero sum game

So sick of seeing minions
Whose facts are all opinions
Who say what they say just to say it
When they might as well just about] spray it
Yeah I’m so sick of seeing minions
Whose facts are all opinions
Who say what they say just to say it
When they might as well just about spray it

But there is no point in being this way
It’s a zero sum game
But there is no point in being this way
It’s a zero sum game

When two plus two is five
And the point of things is dead, not alive
Day to day I’m onto it
No matter how I strive
Just do the math
Opportunities cut in half
You take your part
I’ll take mine
Precisely torn in half
