they keep beating up one another
they keep beating up one another

everything’s hard
and way too easy
everything you find simple
may just be tough
for someone other than you yourself
but, then again
this line for instance
can be understood completely
unless you want it to mean something else

and there I am
sitting in the center of the middle
stirring in the gray paint
in with the colors that collide
watching the extremes
they keep beating up one another
seems everybody’s always
pushing you to pick a side

everything’s clear
‘til you have a look around
nothing is clean
if you search
deep inside the fabric
but, here again
your thoughts
for example
if your mother knew
I believe she’d think you a lunatic

everything’s right
everything’s wrong
this is one of my opinions
but, that don’t mean
I’ll always agree
and here again
my logic
is a perfect sample
for although strange
it makes pretty good sense to me

they keep beating up one another
they keep beating up one another
