lyrics

My life is a series of attempts
To get as much as I can
I won't stop in my efforts
To filter any gold from my dirty dirty pan

You just can't mean a thing
It's every me for myself
I'm drowning responsibility
So my only concern is my health

CHORUS:
And sometimes I get empathy sickness
And the problems of the world are mine to solve
And sometimes I get empathy sickness
And any problems you got, we got to resolve

My life is a series of wrestles
I'll be as selfish as I possibly can
But I fail when I succeed
You said that you were hurt, I turned around and ran

REPEAT CHORUS

And I never get anything done
And I never get anything done
Spend my time searching for the sublime
And I never get anything done or undone

All of the time I got empathy sickness
And the problems of the world are mine to solve
All of the time I got empathy sickness
And any problems you got, we got to resolve
