As Is
Little Plastic Castle 1998

You can't hide
behind social graces
so don't try
to be all touchy feely
'Cuz you lie
in my face of all places
but I got no
problem with that really

What bugs me
is that you believe what you're saying
What bothers me
is that you don't know how you feel
What scares me
is that while you're telling me stories
you actually
believe that they are real

And I got no illusions about you, 
guess what
I never did
when I said
when I said I'll take it
I meant
I meant as is

Just give up
and admit you're an asshole
You would be
in some good company
And I think you'd find
that your friends would forgive you
or maybe I
am just speaking for me

When I look around
I think this, this is good enough
and I try to laugh
at whatever life brings
Cuz when I look down
I just miss all the good stuff
And when I look up
I just trip over things

I've got no illusions about you
guess what
I never did
when I say
when I say I'll take it
I mean
I mean as is
