Track Name: Neither/Nor
Right from the start I've been indebted to you
For covering mistakes and the chances I blew
How could I ever step off or abandon our perch?
It's all that I've ever known

But maybe you know that I am questioning
It shows in my gestures and the songs I sing
What is an ideal man? And is he who I am?
I'm certain of being unsure

Neither/nor, superior, caveat emptor

I walk through our world so comfortably
Finally thinking about why that must be
Oh I hate to agree and to also accept
This land was made for not them, but me

How do I repay for all that you've done?
You've treated me like a favorite son
Grateful though I might be, it doesn't taste sweet
I take an extra bite all the same

Neither/nor, superior, caveat emptor
Neither/nor, neither/nor

Should we give up the place that we've always ruled?
You and I have always had it our way
Could we possibly learn to honestly share?
Oh we can't let go, not today, not today, not today

Neither/nor, superior, caveat emptor
Neither/nor, neither/nor, neither/nor
