lyrics

see! in the corner over there the exurbian priest,
a city slicker with a bone to pick, says that we've
all been denied our god-given great release.
says: "we could be silver-plated,
once were open-faced and naked!
but, listen, you don't hate it like i hate it, yeah!"

up in his seventh-floor apartment the exurbian priest
reading over his treatise on the sorry condition
of the human mind in 21st century heat,
says "i wake up freak out soaked and bloody
this dry malaise is tracing out above me."

but hey!
when you get a moment's rest
do you try to fill it up
with a weight in your chest, whatever's best
that very thought, when you are here
yeah, more or less it's my greatest fear
my greatest fear, my greatest fear

say i'm not that smart, and i'll waste it,
put me through my paces, tell me
i'll be overstuffed and i'll be awfully graceless
tell me you've been close enough to taste it
to a certain degree, o exurbian priest
your misread fight club dogma makes you weightless!

you're a nasty bunch of teeth
half-aware and floating underneath
do you rip and tear your room to breathe
you'll snatch it off the street, yeah
from somebody

somebody else that needs a moment's rest
and they'll try to suck it down
through a weight in their chest, whatever's best
that very thought when you are here
yeah, more or less, it's my greatest fear

"sunlight breaks through falling water,
our hero rides again!" but i don't
have the aptitude to barter
'cause it gets harder and harder.
maybe i'm not so smart,
but you're not much... smarter

and that's my burden to carry, i'm
SECONDARY, SECONDARY
never believe you're like me

and that's my burden to carry, i'm
SECONDARY, SECONDARY
never believe you're like me

and make that your sanctuary, i'm
SECONDARY, SECONDARY
never believe you're like me

and that's my burden to carry, i'm
SECONDARY, SECONDARY
never believe you're like me,
like me, no

but all the same, i know what you want.
it's someone to hate and someone to blame,
and another to stand on the rooftop and wave as you float away
and the pressure you're feeling that builds in your varicose veins
is the dim realization you don't get to have it both ways.
