When a part of the worm that is me

Touches a part of the worm that is you

A part of the worm that is me doesn't know what to do

Should I take your hand

Would my dreams come true

Could I understand the big picture? 

You're part of everything I crave

Accept that this is just a phase



Some say that my love

Is an enduring thing

I think that they might be equivocating

If they mean my love

Is the way I feel for you

And not the you I feel for then it could be true

You're part of everything I care about

But don't tell me you're all here with me right now

'Cos I know better than that

 

(Nobody loves me, everybody hates me...)


You're more to me than just a stage I'm going through

Don't care if it is all the rage

 

When a part of the worm that is me

Has some existential doubt

What is the me that a part of me is wonderin' about?

You're the best thing in

This spatio-temporal whole

But you're no transworld individual

Metaphysics can make you squirm

Can't eat an apple without eating a worm

 

When a part of the worm that is me

Touches a part of the worm that is you

A part of the worm that is me doesn't know what to do

A part of the worm that is me doesn't know what to do...
