about

Mysterious, you know, relatively.

lyrics

So let's say there's a man
Who keeps all his affairs in order
And who does the best he can
But then there's the Earth
Which encroaches on the buried border
That he puts around his words

And they just don't get it
So he puts up razor wire
And he tells them to forget it
But that only fuels the fire

And so they decide
To treat this man as an outsider
And to gossip of his pride
And the divide
Grows too large for a mere divider
To separate the sides

So they say there's a problem
Yeah, they make up a story
They claim that it's awful
And they make a good case
But you know what?

It doesn't matter what they say
Cause he'll take claptrap anyday
Over penny dreadfuls dressed as exposes
Until the day they come and throw him in the lake

And he writhes and he founders
His mouth fills with water
He almost goes under
But no, not today

And so he's a wizard
And must be summarily executed
So it's back to the river for another trial
His guilt has never been disputed
And the crowd's all smiles

So the judge hoists a bible
He flips to some marked chapter
He chokes on his own saliva
Then clears his throat and proclaims:

"You know what this man will do
If he should get his hands on you
And God forbid his dreams come true
Or we'll be down there foundering too

But you know what this man must do
Just to hold on and make it through?"
And so he finally gives in to
You-know-what
