Fessing up, I make lists just to check things off
And I don't care who knows this stuff
It's me
And I find inherent value in the steps I take
Points A and B can wait
A beat
I love diagrams with those little arrows
And that spot by the creek where the water narrows
All things accounted for and clean
Be what you want just don't want me

Here you go, take it all
I'm just a show, it's what you want
Now sit there and watch as I artfully dodge this
Conversation will never change
I'll change my name into something strange
And you will be sorry (happy) eventually

I'm taking everything into account today
Before it slips away
My youth
And all my friends' souls are naked all the time
But I'm fashion redesigned
And new
I love books and Bowie and the record store
And the sound of my boots on a hardwood floor
Please take all fancy things away
Precision and concision can stay
And I really don't care how much they cost
If I lose those two I'm at a loss
Yeah I know it's hard when people say,
"I'm done with you, now have a nice day"
