lyrics

We had symbiosis. I thought we clicked
Turns out you were a bit of a dick
You thought I didn’t have much to offer
The truth is you behaved like a tosser

You thought you’d play me like a C64
But you can’t cope with pressing play and record
If it’s too difficult to work out the function
I’m serving you with a techno-injunction

You told me once that no love was greater
But your love’s more disastrous than Beta
A superior recording, but with no way to play
On obsolete me, dear
Obsolete me, dear

You’re more dynamic than a nuclear reactor
And I’m a sucker for double-adaptor
You got nothing that fits my floppy drive
Obsolete me, dear, obsolete me dear

Obsolete me dear

The way you whore is becoming abhorrent
You been seeding like a Game of Thrones torrent
You share yourself as if it’s some kind of mission
But this girl baby is a first edition

You say you’re the future, but I’m not impressed
You lack depth and you’re highly compressed
The metaphor, like my cassingles, is wearing thin
I’m obsolete me, dear.
Obsolete me, dear
