lyrics

Oh, great. This again.
The curtain rises on a tired and familiar scene
The philandering chief of the gods takes the patron of fidelity to be his queen
They finish each others’ thoughts and
one is the glory of the other, wouldn’t you say?
I saw your lips moving

And it’s important to talk,
you can use a funny voice, or a confabulation, connotation, denotation, or a gestalt
Or borrow half-understood terminology from science like “aggressive margins” and “loading the fault”
There’s something in there that’s worth hearing, I know
that’d only be made less so
If you would just come out and say it

Is it the point to tell or have the point be taken well or
Have me think it up myself and approach a position from a place I’m not?
Then leave a space shaped like the thing it is you wish I thought

On second thought...
We’re gonna have to agree to disagree
I hate fighting ‘bout fighting and I’m not sure I’m satisfied
that you know what trust looks like
Or understand it’s not useless if it’s broken sometimes
We finish each others’ thoughts and
one is the glory of the other, wouldn’t you think?
I heard those wheels turning
