Do I stress you out? My sweater is on backwards and inside out, and you say, "How appropriate." I don't want to dissect everything today

I don't mean to pick you apart you see, but I can't help it And there I go jumping before the gunshot has gone off Slap me with a splintered ruler And it would knock me to the floor if I wasn't there already If only I could hunt the hunter And all I really want is some patience A way to calm the angry voice And all I really want is deliverance Ah-ha-aah-ah-ah-ah Do I wear you out? You must wonder why I'm relentless and all strung out I'm consumed by the chill of solitary I'm like Estella I like to reel it in and then spit it out I'm frustrated by your apathy And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of this land If only I could meet the Maker And I am fascinated by the spiritual man I'm humbled by his humble nature, yeah And what I wouldn't give to find a soulmate Someone else to catch this drift And what I wouldn't give to meet a kindred... Ah-ha-aah-ah-ah-ah Enough about me, let's talk about you for a minute Enough about you, let's talk about life for a while The conflicts, the craziness and the sound of pretences falling All around, all around Why are you so petrified of silence? Here - can you handle this? Did you think about your bills, your ex, your deadlines Or when you think you're gonna die? Or did you long for the next distraction? And all I need now is intellectual intercourse A soul to dig the hole much deeper And I have no concept of time other than it is dying If only I could kill the killer And all I really want is some peace, man A place to find a common ground And all I really want is a wavelength Ah-ha-aah-ah-ah-ah And all I really want is some comfort A way to get my hands untied And all I really want is some justice Ah-ha-aah-ah-ah-ah
