lyrics

It'll never be the case that his attachment to a place was more than homesick, no matter how strong,
But it's sad that the house he was born in, the house he was raised in, ain't where he belongs,
and there's all this movin' round from bigger town to bigger town, maybe prove to your friends that you've grown,
But he couldn't help but think he was balanced on the brink of betraying everything he's loved and known,

Come on now, she said, life's not the tragedy you paint,
and he said, sometimes it's hard to know what you are and what you ain't,

I ain't no lone wolf, I ain't no flock of sheep, I ain't lived long enough to be the me I wanna be,
I ain't no homebody, I ain't no busybody, I ain't met nobody not trying to be somebody,
I ain't no congressional caucus, I ain't no diplodocus,
no, no, no, no, no, no, I'm the man in love with you

It'll never be the case, the revelations that he's made are more than human, no matter how inspired,
But his reality is framed, by the thoughts that bear his name, conducted by a string of fragile golden wire,
And as everything unwinds, reveals the limits of his mind, he hopes that golden wire will carry something more,
so he hears thoughts, and reads thoughts, and makes thoughts, and has the thought, maybe everything he's thought's been thought before,

Come on now, she said, life's not the tragedy you paint,
and he said, sometimes it's hard to know what you are and what you ain't,

I ain't no lone wolf, I ain't no flock of sheep, I ain't lived long enough to be the me I wanna be,
I ain't no homebody, I ain't no busybody, I ain't met nobody not trying to be somebody,
I ain't no congressional caucus, I ain't no diplodocus,
no, no, no, no, no, no, I'm the man in love with you

I ain't no space traveler, I ain't no waste of space, I ain't seen nothing like the sunlight across your face,
I ain't no placeholder, I ain't no bookend, no no no no no no, I'm the man in love with you.
