Song of the Week: Regina Spektor

I'm crazy about these lyrics, so I'll share part of the song here.
............................................................
Ghost of Corporate Future
by Regina Spektor

...Imagine you go away
On a business trip one day
And when you come back home,
Your children have grown
And you never made your wife moan.

And people make you nervous
You'd think the world is ending,
And everybody's features have somehow started blending
And everything is plastic,
And everyone's sarcastic,
And all your food is frozen,
It needs to be defrosted.

You'd think the world was ending right now.

Well maybe you should just drink a lot less coffee,
And never ever watch the ten o'clock news,
Maybe you should kiss someone nice,
Or lick a rock,
Or both.

Maybe you should cut your own hair
'Cause that can be so funny
It doesn't cost any money
And it always grows back
Hair grows even after you're dead...

...the world is everlasting....
