High-strung


Lyrics:
You and I both started the same way
Taught the same skills but different interests
We were both needles among the haystack
We pop out from the rest
But how did we end up so high-strung when it comes to each other?

I get it. I was too self-deprecating while you love to enjoy the spotlight
Could the minor difference be each other's pet peeves that lead to the fight
Yeah how did we end up so high-strung when it comes to each other?

Your gallery is full of self portraits
While mine's piled up with jokes of pride and envy
Which turned out to be real, so true
It's quite frightening, actually

You got your wish of hogging all the spotlight
Just because I'm too self-deprecating
But I only wanna make people laugh
Not engage a competition, one of us will be hated

You might be all about thunder and lightning
But I'm backed up with mischief and pranks
My time was dedicated to making parodies and jokes
While your works bring enlightenment and gaining people's thanks

The attention, and jealousy, had made us high-strung when we're with each other

Well I'm sorry for the spoofs and accusations
But you should be sorry for stealing the attention
And your vanity, oh yes your vanity
Won't you tone it down with a pinch of sanity?

(Loosen the keys, slow down the guitar strums
Lighten up, let go all the tension)
Then maybe we wouldn't be so high-strung when it comes to each other
When it comes to each other
When it comes to each other

Don't be the product, buy the product!
