about

Written by Robert Pollard (Needmore Songs - BMI)

lyrics

i am a scientist - i seek to understand
all of my impurities and evils yet unknown
i am a journalist - i write to you to show you i am an incurable
and nothing else behaves like me
and i know what's right
but i'm losing sight
of the clues for which i search and choose to abuse to just unlock my mind
yeah and just unlock my mind
i am a pharmacist
prescriptions i will fill you potions, pills and medicines
to ease your painful lives
i am a lost soul
i shoot myself with rock and roll the hole i dig is bottomless
but nothing else can set me free
i am a scientist - i seek to understand me
i am an incurable and nothing else behaves like me
everything is right - everything works out right everything fades from sight
because that's alright with me
