lyrics

There is something light-like in the way that we behave
We are always fully particle; always fully wave
And I can’t say with certainty there’s not a demon here at play
Or whether you exist or you’re a phantom limb refusing to decay

In waiting we live our lives
But we are all condemned to die
And that’s our only certainty

There is no sin in the human condition
We are not flawed; we are not incomplete
There is no curse in our existence
Just myths disguised as meaning

Sometimes I wonder just how much beast we’re willing to embrace
Our repugnance is so telling but I still struggle with why we’re so ashamed
Is there any sense in denying that it’s less symptom than disease?
I’m not asking for forgiveness and I’m not looking for release

Such impressive intellect
Such utter disconnect
Between us and who we want to be

There is no sin in the human condition
We are not flawed; we are not incomplete
There is no curse in our existence
Just myths disguised as meaning

With all my heart I hope and pray; I guess you can call that faith
But it’s never really mattered much if god had a human face
And you’ll pardon me if I won’t define what I can’t comprehend
I’m just not sure how much good can come from trying so hard to pretend

There was a time I wanted truth
But that was way back in my youth
Now I’m content with absurdity
