lyrics and be human

I analyze and I verify and I quantify enough
one hundred percentile
no errors, no miss
I synchronize and I specialize and I classify so much
don't worry 'bout dreaming
because I don't sleep
I wish I could at least 30 percent
maybe 50 for pleasure
then skip all the rest
if I only was more human
I would count every single second of the rest of my life
if I just could be more human
I'd have so many little babies and maybe a wife
I'd roll around in mud
and have lots of fun
then when I was done
build bubblebath towers and swim in the tub
sand castles on the beach
frolic in the sea
get a broken knee
be scared of the dark and I'd sing out of key
cuss when I lost a fight
kiss and reunite
scratch a spider bite
be happy with wrinkles I got when I smiled
pet kittens til they purred
maybe keep a bird
always keep my word
I'd cry at sad movies
I'd laugh til it hurt
I'd buy a big bike
and ride by the lake
and I'd have lots of friends
and I'd stay out til late
if I could just be more human
I would see every little thing with a gleam in my eye
if only I was more human
I'd embrace every single feeling that came in my life
would I care and be forgiving?
would I be sentimental and would I feel loneliness?
would I doubt and have misgivings?
would I cause someone sorrow, too?
would I know what to do?
will I cry when it's all over?
when I die will I see heaven

lyrics and what's it for?

i'm not too sure that i can go much farther
i'm really not sure things are even getting better
i'm so tired of the me that has to disagree
and so tired of the me that's in control

i woke up to see the sun shining all around me
how could it shine down on me?
you'd think that it would notice
i can't take anymore
i had to ask myself,
"what's it really for?"

everything i tried to do, it didn't matter
and now i might be better off just rolling over
cause you know i tried so hard but couldn't change a thing
and it hurts so much i might as well let go

i can't really take the sun shining all around me
why would it shine down on me?
you'd think that it would notice
i no longer believe
can't help tellin' myself,
"it don't mean a thing"

i woke up to see the sun shining all around me
how could it shine on me?
sun shining all it's beauty
why would it shine down on me
you'd think that it would notice
i can't take anymore
just had to ask myself
"what's it really for?"
