See You Around
(Vic Chestnutt )

I'm sorry for my lack of communication
but as I'm staring out this fifth floor window
it seems like the least amount of
communication the better
oh, well what am I supposed to say
there's a bloody effigy on my wall
and the complimentary carnation is falling apart
and I ain't got time for the niceties
or rather I was never, never fond of the niceties

I will see you around
I will see you around
I will see you around
I will see you around

Well I must admit I'm flattered
by your consecration
It's a mind-numbing spine-chilling
but never-the-less heartwarming gesture
but as you make your advances so clumsily
I'll save us both the both the hassle and leave
and hang out all night
in the familiar fluorescent light of Dunkin' Donuts
'cause I ain't got time for the niceties
or rather I was never, never fond of the niceties

I will see you around
I will see you around
I will see you around
I will see you around

Well how are you with issues
lately you've been a half-assed activist
you've been seen sashaying around the picket line
wearing scarcely any sign
oh but always vocal in love and strife
and the politics of your all important life
well, I'm sorry but your routine is
coming off a bit ragged
and I ain't got time for the niceties
or rather I was never, never fond of the niceties

I will see you around
I will see you around
I will see you around
I will see you around
