(dedicated to...)


Who the hell are you?
You're my best friend-of-a-friend
I find you so disgusting
But I didn't always feel the way (and that's okay)

Did you think you had enough of that old life?
Remember that?
That place where we first met?
I woke up from a deep sleep at 80 miles an hour
And there you were
Already disagreeing with yourself
We found it charming

Curiosity became intrigue
Which then turned into laughter
And then awe...

A solid week of learning all your riddles
And we couldn't help but beg you to ask them again
But I was horrified by the void I didn't realize existed
Until you filled it without asking

That's your gift - And what a gift!
But remember that it's meant for
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you

It's our enlightenment
Not your dream - not pleasing yourself
Or was I wrong?

It didn't make much difference for some years
Until I saw your face again
I couldn't believe how much you changed
What happened to you, man?
Get a grip!
It so embarrassing what you do... dressed like that...

How dare you change!
How dare you charm me and then change!
Your job was to inspire me
Not make me sympathize with you!
I don't care! I DON'T CARE!

But now we're in the open...
I gotta say other people may
Like you better this way
That's all well and good
But we know both you should
Give it a rest sometime...

Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you
Me - not you - me - not you - me - not you...
