about

From the album "Vs. The Barbarian Invaders From Outer Space" (1997).

lyrics

I'm just trying to be
I'm just trying to be me
'Coz practice makes perfect,
And perfect is the best way to be

But I still got a lot to learn
Themes always return
You can rely on change
But some things remain the same

And you ask why
the stars in the sky,
Why death comes to us all,
And why we were born at all
And why there's so much shit between
You're trying to find a metaphor for everything.

But I say
It's clear as day!
The clouds by an apple burst
Our greatest blessing and our greatest curse,
Let every human sing:
Everything is a metaphor for everything!

Everything is a metaphor for everything!

So I'll keep trying to be me
If you promise to try to be you
And if we ever make it
Oh! The things we could do!

Nothing could stop us
Nothing mysterious
You can think 'til you're insane But the questions still remain

And you ask why
the stars in the sky,
Why death comes to us all,
And why we were born at all
And why there's so much shit between
You're trying to find a metaphor for everything.

But I say
It's clear as day!
The clouds by an apple burst
Our greatest blessing and our greatest curse,
Let every human sing:
Everything is a metaphor for everything!

Everything is a metaphor for everything!
