BackgroundEdit

We're gonna start off the new year over here with loving the monsters we've become. You could say this song's related to Carnes' story, sequel, prequel. I dunno.
—Author's comment

so, this old song i made in early january of 2014 became a huge inside-joke in my friend group. and i thought to myself, oh wouldn't it be hilarious if i made a whole remake of that song with a pv and everything, in a satirical sorta way y'know?

well that, like, happened, and the line between irony and seriousness on this one ended up being sooooooo thin. SO THIN. i'm definitely very aware that this isn't my best work, but blame 16 y/o me for that because this song in particular was so incredibly difficult to salvage hahaha
—Author's comment (2019 version)

"The Chattering of Teeth and Lack of Common Sanity" (now known as "The Chattering Lack of Common Sense") is an original song featuring GUMI English and YOHIOloid, and was uploaded on January 7, 2014. It received two revised editions.

According to GHOST, the characters in the PV are two original characters they made when they were 16. The character with the bandages is known as Arc and the character with the longer hair is known as Say. GHOST noted that the characters' story was poorly thought-out and this song didn't fit them, remarking that they deserved better. Say and Arc, according to their original story, are of a humanoid species with different biology to humans.

LyricsEdit

Basically, I bet you'll see
at first I'm not quite what I seem
I'll be sure to put a smile
on your silly, ugly faces
Everything is show and tell
The eyes don't fool and mess around
Hold our hands and sing along
Nothing lines up anymore

I could never believe
that people aren't what they seem
Everybody hides their face
How could I have noticed?
Nonetheless, we're all the same
that many things are in our heads
Show your smile and sing along
Nothing lines up anymore

Turn about and on an axis
Circulate the fear around you
Make a storm of tears and anger
Ah, my dear, don't worry 'bout me
You and i were made to dispose
We'll consume the things around us
Just accept the things you know and
look around

Wait
What is going on here?
I'm a little out of sorts
I can feel it slipping
Sanity and things that scare me
Why not try to let go?
I've been feeling out of order
Take it step my step, now
Take a good look, this is me
This is what I've come to be
This is what I've come to be

Close your eyes and watch the screen
display the things you dare not see
I'll be laughing evermore
Everything is show and tell
The eyes don't fool and mess around
Hold our hands and sing along
Nothing matters anymore

Basically, I bet you'll see
at first I'm not quite what I seem
I'll be sure to put a smile
on your silly, ugly faces
Everything is show and tell
The eyes don't fool and mess around
Hold our hands and sing along
Nothing lines up anymore

I could never believe
that people aren't what they seem
Everybody hides their face
How could I have noticed?
Nonetheless, we're all the same
that many things are in our heads
Show your smile and sing along
Nothing lines up anymore

Turn about and on an axis
Circulate the fear around you
Make a storm of tears and anger
Ah, my dear, don't worry 'bout me
You and i were made to dispose
We'll consume the things around us
Just accept the things you know and
look around

Wait
What is going on here?
I'm a little out of sorts
I can feel it slipping
Sanity and things that scare me
Why not try to let go?
I've been feeling out of order
Take it step my step, now
Take a good look, this is me
This is what I've come to be
This is what I've come to be

Close your eyes and watch the screen
display the things you dare not see
I'll be laughing evermore
Everything is show and tell
The eyes don't fool and mess around
Hold our hands and sing along
Nothing matters anymore

Cachinno, perdet eam, uertigine, ego sum
(Laughing loudly, losing it, whirling, I am)
Parare, exacuetur, currendo, ego sum
(Preparing, sharpening, moving around, I am)
Renidet usque ad vos, rideo, rideo, ego sum
(Grinning at you, laughing, laughing, I am)
Cachinno, perdet eam, uertigine, ego sum
(Laughing loudly, losing it, whirling, I am)

Oh, what the hell should I do?
I've been feeling out of order
I am slowly losing it
Sanity and things that see me
Face the reality,
I'm a little out of sorts
Wear a crooked smile, now
This is what I've come to be
This is what I shouldn't be
This is what I want to be

Basically, I bet you'll see
at first I'm not quite what I seem
Every day is just the same
Picking names, repeating faces
Everything is show and tell
And things are played off somewhat well
Holding hands, we're rather bored
Nothing lines up anymore

I could never understand
how first impressions go unplanned
Everybody hides their face
How could I have noticed?
Nonetheless, we're all the same
There's many things from where we came
Show a smile, we're rather bored
Nothing lines up anymore

Turn around about a new view
Bring about the fear inside you
Make a storm of tears and anger
Never mind, don't worry 'bout me
We've disposed of our contention
Do our best, avoid attention
"Just accept the things you know"
Well, maybe so...

Wait.
What is going on here?
I'm a little out of sorts
I've been contemplating
fallacies and
things that scare me
"Why not try to let go?"
I've been feeling out of order
I'm allowing change, so
take a good look
This is me
This is what I've come to be
This is what I've come to be

Look away cus we forgot
the apathy that's tied in knots
Hearing our every thought
Everything is show and tell
And things are played off somewhat well
All because we're rather bored,
Nothing matters anymore

Moving along
Dancing along
Playing along
I am
Waiting for it
Preparing it
Looking for it
I am
Feeling around
Messing around
Looking at you
I am
Laughing a lot
Losing a lot
Looking at you
I am

What the hell should I do?
I've been feeling out of order
I've been sorta noticing
fallacies and
things that see me
Surely you've always known
I'm a little out of sorts
First impressions reborn
This is what I've come to be
This is what I shouldn't be
This is what I wanna be
