Ironic cause I think I'm getting so huge I need a shrink
Note the wordplay: Need a shrink (psychologist) because of his megalomania. In this exact moment he needs to shrink in order not to be so huge.
Em thinking he needs a shrink is ironic because he has previously declared his unwillingness to pay shrink’s their expensive weekly fees just for them to tell him the same thing over and over.
Em’s change from his old “philosophies” and thoughts in the original MMLP, continues two majors themes in the current MMLP2 album…
- 1) Multiple random references to MMLP,
- And 2) Em’s apparent evolution from the old MMLP days to the new days.
