lyrics

Can’t Help Myself

This torture is self-inflicted, baby I think I’m addicted
To having my idea of humanity always contradicted
In my head it’s depicted, rising above animals
Overcoming all intangibles, and damn it makes me feel uplifted
Then people start to speak, then people start to act
People still suffer and the painting becomes abstract
Until it makes no sense, like preferred ignorance
Am I Captain Jean-Luc or Burt Reynolds in Deliverance

We have mastery over Nuclear Fission
And still fight wars over religion
I see the great divide between the classes
Through these goddamn rosy glasses

Fix my gaze upon the cosmos, never made it up to Davos
Everything is twisted like the words of St. John of Patmos
Where is the Sacred Soul, What happened to MLK
Oh yeah, they were both assassinated in the light of day
Why do I keep hopin’ that all minds can open
And evolve like we were dancin’ to a tune by Aaron Copland
I still see potential where violence seems essential
Fear is exponential and hate is so influential

Stupidity isn't punishable by death but if it was I think we’d all be outta breath
I keep hopin’ for a better future out trekkin’ the stars instead of skipping on solutions
And bears with glasses, elephants with holes you've been flattered into doing’ what you’re told
Racing off to maintain your ant colony, while not turning back to offer an apology
/
I don't think you understand the kind of mess that we are in

I JUST CAN’T HELP MYSELF, I KEEP ON DOING THIS
I JUST CAN’T HELP MYSELF, I KEEP ON DOING THIS
