hedgehog’s dilemma lyrics – postman syndrome

here it goes again, the masking of dirty truths- the
penning of words, creating worlds that are lost on you.
you never care to meet characters laid upon your feet,
never to penetrate the membrane you have wrapped around
you. but i saw more i think a thought of you. the words
i’ve said, no longer spent- one slipped tongue and
there you went through, with me right after you.
so i see you’ve built yourself a fortress too, but when
compared to these walls yours seems bare like an old
coc**n that will crumble soon. now i breathe the stale
air of my little tomb and drink the water drank before,
and eat the mildew off the walls for food.ride. tumble
free and feel undone. every word strikes a hammerfall.
why, once again, fire as you may, will this wall not
divide? and i try and catch my mind as it goes on
peeling off its rind; so i grow but i p*ss as pointless
rhymes just for show, and now i think it’s time that
you disrobe. the package is waiting.i didn’t know it
would be so long, and i grow so tired of singing songs
to those who know, but still carry on like they don’t.
now i think it’s time that you know that now i think
it’s time. each successive line ricochets wall turned,
denied, back at mine.

[hedgehog’s dilemma 2]

but it echoes all around me.
and it only goes just to show you how many ways you
don’t know you, and it only goes just to show me. and
so as not to disappoint you all here’s a silly song for
you to sing along. i’d never want to disappoint you.
but all around me it echoes and echoes. when they
surround me, these words are my own. and all around me
it echoes and echoes. when they surround me, these
words are my home. and they may drown me, but that’s
okay- here you go. now how’s that sounding? it’s just a
silly song to sing along to. it’s just a silly song to
sing about you. it’s just a silly song.
