I’m in built up shot down suspense
it can get intense fishing compliments
I’m still waiting for consequence
dirty laundry vents drunken arrogance

everyone’s got their own pretense
pick and choose your friends to justify the ends
armpit scents don’t make any sense
shaking all the hands, swapping all the sweat

Ritalin and chocolate bars don’t have us on a leash
Our chemical dependencies transcend comprehension

this town doesn’t find me funny today
must have been something I ate last night
If you get a chance, stab me in the fuckin’ face
I had it coming

am I still in your present tense
or have I dissolved into the ambience?

this town doesn’t find me funny today
must have been something I did last night
experts say one out of ten people feel this way, I thought I was one of a kind
You’re all the Other

I took a walk through the forest
you took a walk through the trees
I didn’t notice we parted ‘till I looked you in the eyes
oh, I wish I knew
that someday we’d be a part
of everyone
