It's hard to find someone new
When everyone's in love with everyone but you
Oh, the joys of lacking empathy
But you sit and stare, fighting your apathy

Why is finding love such a challenge?
Why is the heart such a callous phallus,
Always itching to penetrate?

It's easy to lose someone too
When everyone's found love with everyone but you
Oh, the spoils of being so lonely
You can't help but feign the joy of being by yourself

Why does the heart ask for too much?
Oh my god, I wanna fall in love
But I hate everyone
