lyrics

Are you weary, are you lonesome, let down, owed some kind of explanation for the way that things are going? Do you fight the fight night after night, always on the phone, looking for reassuring from a confirmation code, mourning every morning, more or less unknown, in need of somebody to chew your words for you, somebody who’s gonna tell you what to do, so you won’t have to waste your time learning something new? Well, honey baby, I’ve got news for you. I’m not here to buy or sell the ground on which you stand, build a wall around your town or claim your holy land, and I’ll take the hurting if it helps you understand: I want to feel things the way you fear them. I got hung up on a party line, laying low down deep inside a data mine where nothing needed knowing, then I lit out as the crow flies down a dark and winding road, taking a shine to a brighter time when everything was glowing, when suddenly I saw myself from the other side, but it was your face I saw reflected in my eyes. I said, “I’m not here to buy or sell the ground on which you stand, build a wall around your town or claim your holy land, and I’ll take the hurting if it helps you understand. I want to feel things the way you fear them."
