lyrics

Mr. Optimistic
Meet the disgusted, humorless indignant

When what you say means nothing at all to the mob
And you feel your skin thicken in disillusionment
Hoo-ah

When you taste that polemic on the tip of your tongue
And it feels like battery acid burning through your tone
You better mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap
You better mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap

One mistake, you’ll feel a shake
And the whole world lost another one
Your meaning’s swallowed in the quake
And the chasm yawns
The chasm yawns

Just when you thought you couldn’t tread lighter
You feel the floor break up from under

An arid isle of contention is what’s become of your common ground
Just when you thought it was safe to venture out
You feel the valley open wider

But
But when you taste that polemic on the tip of your tongue
And it feels like battery acid burning through your tone
You better mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap

One mistake, you’ll feel a shake
And the whole world lost another one
Your meaning’s swallowed in the quake and the chasm yawns
The chasm yawns

My, my, my,
What frontier could we ever hope to find when we thrive
In the fault line
The fault line of fault
And the chasm yawns?

When what you say means nothing at all to the mob
And you feel your skin thicken in disillusionment
But when you taste that polemic on the tip of your tongue
And it feels like battery acid burning through your tone
Mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap
