Ravi plots out his life on the night before his IIT entrance exam. Where there is a will there is a way to delay disappointment.


In a world with more numbers than words.
Ain’t no time for no contemplating.
Battle lines are drawn in black and white.
But these rites of passage ain't the be all and end all no...

I’ve got a suicide note ready,
just in case I fall asleep.
I’ve got a noose in the cupboard.
But won’t you hold on… hold on… hold on…hold on… I’ve had this thought before.

I don't fit no demographic.
And I’ve got the scars to prove it.
So I miss out on all the Instagram sex and dancing,
that indian advertising figured out, figured out.

And there it is. The breach in the dam.
Against the will of the universe, all huffing and puffing.
And my straw house resolve is just a memory,
but there's no charity around here, just more walls and slime.

But oh... There's a house by a beach somewhere.
That smells like rain, and a girl...
Shaped like Ashlynn Brooke, but with eyes like Ashlyn Rae.
And I will claim every ounce of the silence,
that comes with beach front real estate.
‘Cos I wanna be Charlie Sheen…
Winning, with Alexis and Bree.
And I won't be spent being bent to fit the state endorsed ideal life…
State endorsed ideal life.
But won’t you hold on... hold on... hold on... hold on...
I’ve had this thought before.

And ooh ooh ooh,
here comes a feeling.
SNUFF IT OUT… You’ve gotta break it's little neck.
but ooh ooh ooh… Its just a little feeling,
SNUFF IT OUT... There’s no time to be affected.
And oh oh oh you can't
afford to stop moving.
Stay close to the shoal,
‘cos you ain't as good as the rest.
As good as the rest , good as the rest.
And you know it...

Compensate, compensate,
till you've been assimilated.
Compensate, compensate,
till you've been assimilated.
