Verse 1 Say too much, say not enough It’s all we have and it’s just too much Clean or cut, smooth or scruff A little too nice or little too rough File it all then keep it free To hold the schedules that hold the key Through the mine, plain to me Take isolation with a cup to tea Time a time - too hard to break To take a take on being late Relation or relations relate Form a form 6, 7, 8 Snatch and grab an overwhelming stab All too quiet to have the gift of the gab Is it fascinating or a little too drab Did I cut myself just to leave a scab? So Sign away, haven’t got all day Is it life to defy or again to obey? Too black and white to be a little to grey Make me waterproof im in need today Change device as the earth expands Hard so hands have image bands It’s not so easy to engulf demands With swollen brains and sunken glands Verse 2 Act of science or dust defiance Apocalyptic insurgent alliance Get some aid to get self-reliance A little too small so I talk to giants Sublaxation, stand to temptation Were all divided into a single nation A bitter feud between a blood relation Or an application for interrogation Break too far small repertoire How could you sleep with a door ajar Is it femme fatale of a film noir No, I cut myself just to leave a scar Gone along two rights all wrong You’ve been short for way too long Fit in so much when you don’t belong It’s a little too weak to be a little too strong Verse 3 Not too nice, a pinch comes a punch Kick the air with a sickening crunch A little too scared to crawl in a bunch I’m the bell tower man with a 4/4 hunch Monoxide, call me Jekell and Hyde An upward climb for a downward slide Drinking water unpurified Upside down in formaldehyde Think too much, philosophize It’s a little too early for little white lies Make a mistake to apologize It’s a little too dim or a little too wise From column a or column b For 4 dimensions of wizardry Take out my eyes and I still can see This isn’t a rhyme it’s called poetry If you want to stay I want to go Thirteen tales of human woe Accurate words, shot from a bow A little too fast or a little too slow? A look from the eye to be misled Turn away and don’t mess with my head A little too black to be a little too red Couldn’t kill something if its already dead
