lyrics

Is a game worth watching
If it ends in a tie
Can the victor reap the spoils
Without money on the line
Money on the line

Is a song worth singing
If it can’t be judged
Can the singer show their passion
Without an audience's love

Well misery loves company
So companies sell misery
Their programs, program us
To live vicariously

Misery loves company
So companies sell misery
Their programs, program us
To live vicariously

In constant competition

It drives economies
And it justifies violence
And it gives you a place to belong
Gives you a place to belong
But if it serves our interest
We’ll idolize the cheaters
We’ll finance our captors
Who poison our minds

Why do I need to make sense of everything
What do I lose celebrating my brothers

Because misery loves company
So companies sell misery
They program us
To live vicariously

Misery loves company
So companies sell misery
They program us
To live vicariously

In constant competition

We’re sold spectacles
But they’re just speculation
I can’t miss a chance
To cheer another scripted fabrication

They make us laugh and cry
They tell us who to hate, how and why
They give us networks to push their profits
And medicate our judgements

My competitive nature is a natural disaster
What do I lose, celebrating my brothers

Misery loves company, so companies sell misery
