They call me the apologist.
You know at first it really hurt.
I've skirted all my differences
I wanted to apologize for
I'm sorry so sorry
Did you understand me right?
They tell me what I should have done
I'm good all is good
When I feel regret,
I'm sorry, so sorry
I live a simple life
You think this isn't me?
There I go.

Thank you for listening, goodbye.
I hope for you that you apply
This peacefulness

Unfettered by complex sweets.
That's so sweet.
