Flaming Lips – On Fire lyrics

My opinion could change today, but I'm responsible anyway
For second or third hand information
That complicates the complication
And I don't think before I speak
And I don't know how far my words reach
So wrong nearly every time, that I'm sorry I speak my mind
If what I said was unkind
Now it feels like I'm on fire
It's burning the world through
But don't hold it against me, 'cuz I know you're lying, too
Is there any need for apology? There's no reason to believe me
Judgments born in my jealous mind, creeping inside outside
Connections I've made never follow through
And sooner or later disappoint you
Or cross you twice when your back is turned, that's how I've learned
That someone has got to be burned
Now it feels like I'm on fire, these words are not the truth
But don't hold it against me, 'cuz I know you're lying, too
Feels like I'm on fire, it's burning the world through
Don't let me fall without someone to hold on to
Someone to hold to, someone to hold on to
