Mind vs. Body

lyrics

I know everybody wants to play with their bodies.
I know everybody wants to touch somebody.
I know everybody wants to fuck their buddies,

but you’re gonna have to feel if you wanna get real.

I know everybody wants to have a bunch of buddies.
I know everybody wants to be somebody.
I know everybody wants to be my buddy.

If you wanna be my friend – if you wanna be my friend – friends until the end – friends until the end – well, if you wanna be our friend – if you wanna be our friend – friends until the end, and you wanna be our friend… Well, you sent that message and I wrote back right away, but then I never heard from you again. Well, if you wanna be my friend… If you wanna be my friend,
you’re gonna have to send. You’re gonna have to send. If you wanna be my friend, you’re gonna have to send.

Well, it’s time to get a little bit mental. Physical kids, we don’t know, we don’t know, we don’t –
We’ll get high; we’ll get on the highway up to the university library.
We’ll have ourselves a little debate: there’ll be two teams, the mind and the body.
You can be on my team; my team always wins,

because I know everything and I think that’s a thing.
I know what I think and it’s all that I think.
I know what I think and I think it’s everything.
I know everything and I know there’s no such thing.
I know everything and I know that I don’t know.
I know what I know and I know I’ll never know.
I know what I know and it’s all that I know.
I know everything and I know that I know, but

you’re gonna have to feel if you wanna get real.
You’re gonna have to feel if you wanna get real.
You’re gonna have to feel if you wanna get real.
You’re gonna have to feel if you wanna get real…

Well, it’s time to get a little bit mental. Physical kids, we don’t know, we don’t know, we don’t know.
We don’t know why and I don’t know how, but every conversation is a fight when you’re around.
There are no winners, I can’t lose. Every conversation is an argument with you.
This is not a debate; there’s no judge and no court. The mind’s in the head in the body of course.
