lyrics

There’s one or two things about which I’d say I really care
I’ll put up with a lot as long as those few things are there
I bet you’ve got a different list
I know that you exist
But I can’t see you

It’s only fair that there’d be pushback on some things we’re proud of
that you’ve got a problem with and I’ll allow that you’re allowed
It sucks always being wrong
I know that you are strong
But I can’t see you
But I have no doubt if you were to be
But shown the way then you would agree
With all of us over here, with my friends and me
And I’d show you myself.
but I can’t see you
And you can’t see me
And what would you think you were looking at if you could?
Somebody just like you but mean or stupid or just plain no good?

I saw one of your guys dismantled in an interview
How could you watch something like that and think the way you do?
Sometimes I just feel sorry for you
Most times I just ignore you
because I can’t see you
And you can’t see me
And what would you say you were staring at if you did?
An opportunity, a teachable moment, a nagging pain of which you wish you were rid?

It’s like I gave you your comeuppance and you said, “I know”
like I’d just made your point for you in words you would have chosen
Oh, who knows? Maybe you know you’re wrong
You might even hear this song
But I can’t see you
But I have no doubt if you were to be
But shown the way then you’d agree
With all of us over here, with my friends and me
But you won’t and that’s why I can’t see you
And I can’t hear you
And I can’t see you
