(Since when) was it just a fallacy of tainted memory
(Since when) to believe that things were really all right
(Since when) where the qualities of wisdom and knowledge
(Since when) equivalent to mere facts online
(Since when) were the virtues of character and content
(Since when) more than just a popularity game
(Since when) was the protocol of rational judgment not the same as blame

(Since now!)
It's fucked up beyond all recognition
Just a symptom of the time
(Since now!)
You might call it modern cognition
Without a reason or rhyme

(Since when) was the platitude of honorable mention
(Since when) only a dishonor to behold
(Since when) was being second only first among the losers just the same as getting old

(Since now!)
It's natural to feel unlucky
Too many winners spoil the prize
(Since now!)
So if you're on the bottom
Don't you cry

(Since when) was history just futile mission
(Since when) without a context to reveal
(Since when) was lacking sense of place or social purpose the new deal

(Since now!)
It's fucked up beyond all recognition
Just symptom of the time
(Since now!)
You might call it cognition
But don't ask why

Ask, "Since when?"
