04. Studying Politics

The Question
by Emery



 

It's like a pencil with erasers at both ends
I've won it all but we're dealing in percents
And these activities that you have engaged in
This is the politics of seeing you dance with him

We begin with concluding remarks,
Break up the pieces and examine the parts
Your words always cut when they are cliche
So here's my knife because I came for the buffet,

This is the way it goes
With you apart of it
Nervously saying words
That all so-tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin [ah ah]
I've caught you once again

It's in the way you sell
Every word and phrase
And leaving me to know
How much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this [ah ah]
Using hands for emphasis

You'd like to think that you're the best part of me
But I confess there is nothing left of you here [nothing left of you here]
These parallels and silly games
Hide your face and say the name, say the name [say the name],

This is the way it goes
With you apart of it
Nervously saying words
That all so-tightly fit
A mark beneath the chin [ah ah]
And I've caught you once again

It's in the way you sell
Every word and phrase
And leaving me to know
How much the meaning weighs
Saying that but meaning this[ah ah]
Your tears for emphasis

Ah, there's that smile again [theres that smile again]
You fake it and i follow you right in
What a fool I've been
To fall for it each time

This is the way it goes
With you apart of it
Nervously saying words
That all so-tightly fit
It's in the way you sell
Every word and phrase
And leaving me to know
How much the meaning weighs
This is the way it goes
With you a part of it
Nervously saying words
That all so-tightly fit
It's in the way you sell
Every word and phrase
And leaving me to know
How much the meaning weighs
