"Only Yourself"

[Verse 1]
No choice for the feeling but to fester
No chance I could cover it with my shell
No shade at the center of the center
You think you're someone
Who thinks he's somebody else

[Chorus]
But you're only yourself
You're only yourself
You're only yourself
You're only yourself

[Verse 2]
The death march of complexity and context
High art how we cannibalized ourselves
The real threat oils up and shovels popcorn
You swear it's someone
Turns out it's somebody else

[Chorus]
You're only yourself
You're only yourself
You're only yourself
You're only yourself

[Bridge]
Come on inside
Sleep in my skull
Hole in my head
And I never feel full
The weight of the world
Is a nursery rhyme:
"We've got nothing but time"

[Verse 3]
Full stop at the genesis of language
No words for the bottomless depths we felt
Black bark chokes the forest of our knowledge
I can't be someone
I can't be somebody else

[Outro]
I'm only myself
I'm only myself
I'm only myself
I'm only myself

I'm only myself
I'm only myself
I'm only myself
I'm only myself
