lyrics

Do they do open marriage in Cleveland?
Are hearts in Baltimore big enough to compartmentalize?
It don't matter, I've got the world at my fingers
But if that's the case why do I feel alone?
Why do I feel alone?

Here in Portland we don't do monogamy
Here in Portland we don't do monogamy
Because it's the same as inequality
Because of biology yeah

No here in Portland we don't do monogamy
Here in Portland we prefer frivolity
Because monogamy's misogyny
Because of evolution yeah

So right you're wrong you set the bar too low
So right you're wrong
So right you're wrong now you've placed it too high
I'm not anxious no

Are we frivolous? I am afraid
A flock of disciples without a God to name
Bold blue horizons but where's the ground to stand on?

What about Tuscon?
Or Tuscaloosa?
Could've gone to Detroit
Where they need one another

But here in Portland we don't do monogamy
Here in Portland we prefer bonhomie
Because constancy's mere prophesy
Save that for Deuteronomy yeah

So right you're wrong you set the bar too low
So right you're wrong
So right you're wrong now you've placed it too high
I'm not anxious no

Are we frivolous or just afraid
To follow in the footsteps of those who gave us names?
Are you frivolous am I depraved?
These thoughts go spinning on and on and on
(so frivolous) I can't relate anymore
(so frivolous) I can't restrain anymore
(so frivolous) I can't contain these thoughts

Oh Hera she was jealous
Oh Circe she was angry yeah
Oh Nemesis come and show me the way

Because
Because
Because
Because....
