It comes to you from within
It's a monster but you love it
You can't touch it, or taste it, but you never waste it
It's like an original sin

when i saw you standing
I offered you my seat
Which i never do
No i never do, but you took it
And you sat
And without a glance
You fell asleep
As i opened my packet of juicy fruit
And looked away
Quite self consciously

It gives you a sense of commitment
The drive that you need to succeed
And you love it
It's like an original sin


from The Tears Of Xerxes, released September 30, 2013
