lyrics

Cryptic little tunes
From the quiet of your room
That you can't relate to anyone
Crying little tones
From headphones and speaker cones
You don't identify with anyone
You couldn't just be anyone

You must be such a special case
Among the lesser wastes of space
You paragon of wonderful
Such intelligence you command
No lesser man could ever understand
The sense of self you know

Minor dirgy throes
From a genius no one knows
Beyond the grasp of anyone
Strange chromatic stings
From every singing string
Incomprehensible to anyone
But no, you're not just anyone

You're like a steed among the swine
On the gold standard of time
You embodiment of beautiful
You're cut diamond among the rough
The world could never give enough
To someone so objectively wonderful

So untouchable
So sweet
So unbelievable
So sweet

Heady little quotes
From a spindly little throat
Unpronounceable by anyone
Spidery little bounds
Projected loudly at the crowds
So predictable to everyone
You're not impressing anyone

Such high standards you demand
Beyond the reach of any man
Mistaking arrogance for something laudable
Such a presence you command
No wonder you're such a big fan
Who could not love someone so commendable?

So untouchable
So sweet
So unbelievable
So sweet


A self that you can't clothe
A secret everybody knows
Plain for all to see, behold
Left naked to the cold
A burden for all to see you bear
But pretend you're not even there
You grow, get old, come to despair
That all you can ever be is you
(So untouchable, so sweet)
Is me
(So unbelievable, so sweet)
