lyrics

I don't like the way this feels
My emotions have congealed
Around a nucleus of decomposing truth

If you don't know what I mean
That's ok - - I'm not too keen
On having you decipher every clue

But I'm running out of hope
That the day of reckoning won't come
You shouldn't need a telescope
To figure out where I'm coming from

I don't know how you don't know
I don't know how you don't know
I don't know how you don't suspect anything

It's not rocket science - - it's one plus one
It's not astrophysics - - it's bubblegum
It's not Ulysses - - it's See Spot Run
It's not aerodynamics - - it's two plus two
It's not Thomas Pynchon - - it's Nancy Drew
It's not genetic mapping - - it's me and you
It's not anything you can't understand

I've got nothing to explain
I'm not going against the grain
Just wanna keep things strictly need to know

In the end it'll be for naught
Soon enough I will get caught
Up in some betraying word or deed

It's not rocket science - - it's one plus one
It's not astrophysics - - it's bubblegum
It's not Ulysses - - it's See Spot Run
It's not aerodynamics - - it's two plus two
It's not Thomas Pynchon - - it's Nancy Drew
It's not genetic mapping - - it's me and you

It's me and you
It's me and you
It's me and you
It's not anything you can't understand
