This Connection

I STRUGGLE WITH A FEELING
THAT MIGHT NOT BE SO TRUE
I STRUGGLE WITH EMOTION
AS IíM STRUGGLING WITH YOU
IíM REACHING FOR A REASON
TO EXPLAIN WHY IíM SO BLUE
IN SPITE OF THIS CONNECTIONÖ..

A DISTANCE IS A DISTANCE, YEAH
NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK
NOW THIS IS THE REAL THING
LIFE AINíT NO STORYBOOK
I WISH I WAS A DRINKER
IíD BE SATISFIED A COOK
IN SPITE OF THIS CONNECTIONÖ..

THIS IS A MOMENTARY SETBACK
A MOMENTARY PAUSE
ITíS GOT NO RHYME OR REASON
NO BELIEF OR CAUSE
I REALIZE YOU HATE ME
AND ITíS PROBABLY THE BEST
IíVE CORNERED EVERY HEARTACHE
THEYíRE BURIED IN MY CHEST

I UNDERSTAND CONFUSION
ITíS NOT WHERE WE SHOULD BE
I UNDERSTAND REDEMPTION
BUT THERE IS NO REDEEMING ME
IT SEEMS THAT TELEVISION
IS A FORCED REALITY
IN SPITE OF THIS CONNECTIONÖ.

ITíS A BITTER SITUATION
WHEN THE ONE YOU WON FALLS THROUGH
DESPITE REMEDIATION
THESE WORDS YOU CANíT UNDO
I COULD PLASTER YOU WITH RHETORIC
IT MIGHT MAKE US COME TO
IN SPITE OF THIS CONNECTIONÖÖ..
