lyrics

how do you see the world
i think it all connects in some kinda circle
we come together in ways i don't know
and baby i just don't care if i ever do

when we were younger i'd dream about
everything that you thought you'd figured out
i'd think myself into your little box
but your heart was always locked up like fort knox

and now you rant and you rave about how i objectify
even as i look into your eye
like you don't know that you've been staring at
another beat-up old and busted alley cat

so how do you see the world
i think it all connects in some kinda circle
we come together in ways i don't know
and baby i just don't care if i ever do

and now you told every single guy you know
exactly everything he's been waiting for
and i guess that you got my number too
but i ain't got the time for being blue

if you could see yourself with my eye
maybe you'd shut up and testify
but every single night we go to bed
i forget the shit you put into my head

you're trouble baby
you lost my radio
and the song i played was playing just for you
but your eyes were closed
and your static turned up loud
as you whisked yourself away into the crowd

so how do you see the world
i think it all connects in some kinda circle
we come together in ways i don't know
and baby i just don't care if i ever do

baby i just don't care if i ever do
