lyrics

clouded eyes
see what they strain to see
stark evidence
lift the veil to me

anyway you have to be ready to dispense with fools
(there's a way, there's a way, there's one way, there's no way.)
anyway you have to be ready to dispense with fools
that fool is you

onward into our limitations
can we agree that we won't address
the complications implicated in the face of
this elaborate hallucination
you close your eyes and I'll do the same
so we can be magically deranged

can we find new permutations
of the same old combination
if we relax and ignore the facts?
hey, can I say congratulations?
you got me to believe your emotionally disturbed world of the absurd.

walk me through
the part I must have missed
I walk alone
you cannot exist
the way others do
you might say it's a lost cause
but I've always been lost

put your back to the tide this time
put your fowl in a line this time

anyway you have to be ready to dispense with fools
anyway you have to be ready to
ready to, I wasn't ready to, among other flaws
anyway you have to be ready to dispense with fools
that fool is you
no, you. no, you. no, you. no, you.

thank you for your consideration
here's a gold star of participation glued to your cheek
new one every week
for your latest impersonation
if we write off the time that we lost
to lose it again, it can't be tragic then.

I can't hold you responsible
cause then, you'd have to be responsible
oh, please
die in a fire
that you built with no guilt.
