ex-spectator lyrics – fugazi

looking for cars and mortality
trying to find some sort of geometry
avoiding mistakes
keep an eye on every step i take

everything is building and it appears
that you’re all architects and engineers
that’s how it looks
that’s how it looks from here

i’m an ex-spectator
can’t you see?
i’m an ex-spectator
never let my… vision get in the way of

here’s some questions that the writer sent:
can an observer be a partic*p*nt?
have i seen too much?
does it count if it doesn’t touch?

if the view is all i can ascertain
pure understanding is out of range
if i make that call
why can’t i make that change?

i’m an ex-spectator
can’t you see?
i’m an ex-spectator
never let my… vision get in the way of
me
