INTELLIGENCE

INTELLIGENCE


it
the whole idea creates
senselessness

god bless intelligence
fulfilled obliging
gets in the way
don't remind me
my mind in your body
unfortunately insane

intelligence
i need to know i need to know
i need to know i need
intelligence i need to know know know yes

am i as smart as i think?
probably not, that's good
daily disease cannot feel pain of
only consider the thought
of the symptom of hurt

intelligence
the hat you wore
didn't cover up my ears
they were freezing
intelligence
and i could hear nothing
and i was screaming at you
can't understand the words
intelligence
i don't have a dictionary yet
living language
intelligence
i need to know
teach me
at weehawken stadium we kissed
and it was awful

the words
the words and lyrics
lines and phrases
half-sentences subtleties
your description was
think i'll say this without using words
had i known the truth
speech impediment
thinking about what to say
next time we meet
can't understand the words
bring up the vocal
i would not have come
i would not have come
i would not have come
we had at the jersey shore
and you had brought your paintings
something your spare time depended on

intelligence
the weather had nothing to do with
what you must have thought of me
i need to know i need to know
i need intelligence
but it prevented us from
understanding the words
intelligence
know know
lines and phrases half-sentences
can't understand the words
yes
no
intelligence
i need to know
i need to know
i need for somebody to tell me
intelligence
limiting
