lyrics

You keep some quiet truths
Time seems to amplify
The more nervous that you look
The more nervous looks will find you
You cant avoid it evade it forever
Can't just be quick off the line
If you don't evolve your excuses
you cannot keep it going on

You just aren't wired up to take direction well
(Don't take direction at all)
You seem to have
it all worked out
You don't feel responsible
Always the accomplice

You must have your reasons for
Giving up
You completely ignore
All the damage you cause
Forget what it costs
Forget what you used to know
The wires all cross
The circuits keep shorting out
It wouldn't be worth it
If it wasn't working
All your problems just
Keep circling

You see these systems, they hang around like insults
No one wants it all to end
No one wants it to be difficult
All you see are problems that probably need fixing
"That wound it needs a tourniquet Someone get the bandages"

You just aren't wired up to take direction well
(Don't take direction at all)
You seem to have it all worked out
Might not feel responsible but always the accomplice

When you die, what will be left of your bones? For a time, what will be left but your body?
And worse, what will be left of your work-week tired. Why even bother? I think.
Is this what they consider a crisis of existence, or and existential something-or-other?
Why do the work to employ a distance between your life and living?
