Incubus - Pardon Me Lyrics

Incubus Make Yourself cover art

A decade ago
I never thought I would be
At twenty-three
On the verge of spontaneous combustion
Wo-is-me

But I guess that it comes with the territory
An ominous landscape of never ending calamity
I need you to hear
I need you to see that I have had all that I can take
And exploding seems like a definite possibility to me

So pardon me while I burst into flames
Pardon me while I burst into flames
I've had enough of the world and it's people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me, I'll never be the same

Not two days ago
I was having a look in a book
And I saw a picture of a guy fried up above his knee
I said, 'I can relate?'
Cause lately I've been thinking of combustication
As a welcomed vacation
From the burdens of the planet earth

Like gravity, hypocrisy, and the perils of being in 3-D
And thinking so much differently

So pardon me while I burst into flames
I've had enough of the world and it's people's mindless games
So pardon me while I burn and rise above the flame
Pardon me, pardon me, I'll never be the same

Like gravity, hypocrisy, and the perils of being in 3-D
And thinking so much differently
