I KNOW

I think what you think
But I say it out loud;
I say what you say
But in front of a crowd.

I want what you want
But I do what it takes;
I do what you do
But don't hide my mistakes.

I feel what you feel
But I know what it means;
I know what you know
But it's not what it seems.

I know who I am --
I am who you are;
From here to there
Is not very far.
A broken mirror
Multiplies
Its images
And all its lies.

I need what you need
But I see my bonds;
I see what you see
But I look beyond.

A little nod to my art-punk roots. I may or may not bother to finish working up music right now -- giving it a rest might lead to less generic results.
