The Human Abstract – Mea Culpa lyrics

We shared a common trade of reasoning out the years
Of failed affections and faces to forget
You should have told me
That the ties that made it all worth the while
Were quickly becoming a race to the blame
I tried to gain the advantage over you
It's plain to see there's nothing I could do or say
I tried to gain the advantage over you
A sad parade with nothing left to lose or gain
I could feel it coming
Like a train wreck, rumbling off the tracks
With every ounce of strength
I strain to pay back that dirty money
And the fortune abstract, but there's no feeling left intact
For the victim is now a god
Doling out judgment, strike with divining rod
I don't want to get involved, looks like you're doing fine
But when I lay up at night, I can feel your eyes
And I can see your eyes, and I go rushing in to a world inside
Where there's none in between, and nothing can be denied
Struck down and stripped of pride
That I could forgive you for once in our lives
But I failed, and I don't know why, I'll never know why
I failed and I don't know why
I tried to gain the advantage over you
It's plain to see there's nothing I could do or say
I tried to gain the advantage over you
A sad parade with nothing left to lose or gain
