about

I lost a talent show. I told myself it was because of the host. In my defense, I have a pretty compelling reason to believe that.

lyrics

You can set the stage up
it'll only break my heart.
You can light my face up
it'll only be there at the start.
Let the winner dance now
get on up out of your seats.
Enter foreign space crowd
I'm not sad in defeat.

Didn't know me better
now I know you're worse.
You're a fine upsetter
and you never tried to set me up.

If you'd wanted to burn me
you should've just let me know.
If you'd bothered to learn
we wouldn't have had a problem with the show.
Let me level with you
this is not my scene.
If I'm not what you're in to
I should be in between

a facsimile dancer
and then nine more.
I'm a line embedder
and you could've tried to set me up.

Didn't know me better
now I know you're worse.
You're a fine upsetter
and you never tried to set me up.
