Shanti is 39 and bored of being a privileged little house cat. She contemplates trying her hand at charity, but figures it involves direct contact with ugly people. Shanti streams some Gilmore girls instead.

lyrics

Oh no, what a hideous mess.
Dreams of decadence,
and unmade beds oh.
It’s all explained by
a stolen youth.
No chance to bloom.
Or to be rescued by…

Sex… And dancing,
or good old fashioned
conventional romance, oh baby

Can't afford to wait while the leaves are falling
…(gotta) Slide into this weeks calling.
Can't afford to idle while the leaves are falling
… Slide into this week's…This week’s…
Calling…


Weak kneed,
attempts at charity.
Helping animals
to suppress a craving for meat.
But what about the coming week?
Gotta think of something.
Gotta think of something quick.

’Cos the race for fulfillment,
won't wait around for me, no…
How I wish I was some soccer mom.
Bound by security.

Can't afford to wait while the leaves are falling
…Slide into this weeks calling
Can't afford to idle while the leaves are falling
…Slide into this week's…This week’s…
Calling

Oh I can see it now. A bug eyed photograph,
some pity, and some laughs oh.
Half a sigh for half a person,
with no legacy.
How I wish I’d got a job.

Oh no,
shriveled and spent.
Almost dead,
and drowned in envy.
To envy the homeless.
To envy the help.
Wandering fools,
and unattractive girls
that can choose...
