The Art of Conversation

Can't you talk a little louder? I don't understand you
Would you please speak English? Oh, you are speaking English
Can you use complete sentences and not text abbreviations
The art of conversation is rolling over in its grave
The art of conversation is rolling over in its grave

Can you look me in the eye and tell me something non-ironic?
Why does everything you say sound so snotty and sarcastic?
Can you express one idea without a pop culture reference?
The art of conversation is rolling over in its grave
The art of conversation is rolling over in its grave

Do you ever mean what you say? Are you ever sincere?
Do you ever look up from your phone? I'm standing here!
Do you ever say how you feel? Do you care how I feel?
Does it scare you death when life gets too real?

And can you talk a little louder? I can't hear you if you mumble
I think I'll pull up a chair and watch civilization crumble
It's all because of you, I might be exaggerating
