lyrics
ATL Delta Airlines to MIA
Accidentally went to Art Basel on this day
I'm a civilian spouse tagging long on my
wife's business trip
she's a Live Nation music business executive

9:00 AM a movie producer drinking mai tais in the pool
A couple French rent boys snorting llello off a boogie board
instagram influencer floating on a raft
her publicist follows her trying not to get her iPad wet

I'm sp glad I'm on the outside looking in
cause none of this ends well
It's like a dumpster fire but the worst amongst us
emerge unscathed
For bread and circuses they'll let us choose
which of them will live
And who goes to the lions

An NFT artwork conference here at the hotel
they got a sitting US Congressman in on the grift
"Smart NFT contracts gonna reverse
systemic inequality" haha
While making Sandhill VC firms a few trillion more

I'm so glad I'm on the outside looking in
cause none of this ends well
It's like a dumpster fire but the worst amongst us
emerge unscathed
For bread and circuses they'll let us choose
which of them will live
And who goes to the lions

The Devil is having drinks with agent from CAA
but he's gotta see what William Morris is willing to pay
A little taste of Gomorrah in Miami Beach
Never knew the end of the world was must watch tv

ATL Delta Airlines to MIA
Accidentally went to Art Basel on this day
