Lyrics

YOU'RE OBSESSED AND DISTRESSED 'CUZ YOU
CAN'T MAKE ANY SENSE OF THE LUDICROUS
NONSENSE AND INCIPIENT SENESCENCE THAT
WILL DEEM YOUR COMMON SENSE USELESS
THIS AIN'T NO RECESS!
I WANT TO BELIEVE IN YOU BUT MY PLANS KEEP
FALLING THROUGH I KNOW I HAVE TO FACE THE
HARSHNESS, GRIN AND BARE THE TRUTH AND I
HAVE TO WALK THIS MILE IN MY OWN SHOES
(AND I'M NO FOOL!) I'M MATERIALIST A
FULL-BLOWN REALIST (PHYSICAL THEORIST)
AND I GUESS I'M FULL OF DOUBT SO I'M PRONE
TO HEAR YOU OUT AND REFUSE I'M MATERIALIST
THERE AIN'T NO FEAR IN THIS IT'S THERE FOR ALL
TO SEE SO DON'T TALK OF HIDDEN MYSTERIES
WITH ME
MIND OVER MATTER IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER
IF THE STREET'S IDLE CHATTER TURNS YOUR
HEART-STRINGS TO TATTERS FLATTER HOPES
DON'T FLATTER AND SOUL BATTER WON'T CONGEAL
TO MEND A LIFE THAT IS SHATTERED INTO SHARDS
WAS IT IN THE CARDS? THE PROCESS OF BELIEF IS
AN ELIXIR WHEN YOU'RE WEAK I MUST CONFESS.
AT TIMES I INDULGE IT ON THE SNEAK BUT
GENERALLY MY OUTLOOK'S NOT SO BLEAK
(AND I'M NOT MEEK!) I'M MATERIALIST A
FULL-BLOWN REALIST (PHYSICAL THEORIST)
AND I GUESS I'M FULL OF DOUBT BUT I'LL
GLADLY HAVE IT OUT WITH YOU I'M MATERI -
ALIST I AIN'T NO DEIST IT'S THERE FOR ALL TO
SEE SO DON'T SPEAK OF HIDDEN MYSTERIES WITH
ME LIKE ROME UNDER NERO, OUR FUTURE'S ONE
BIG ZERO RECYCLING THE PAST TO MEET EMMEDI -
ATE NEEDS AND THROUGH IT ALL WE RAMBLE
FORTH TO PRESERVE AND CLIMB OUR MOUNTAINS
OF REGRET TO SOW OUR SEEDS I'M MATERIALIST!
