The Surface Of Me

This song is by Bad Religion and appears on the album The Empire Strikes First (2004).

A study of history reveals an unflagging appeal to mystery
You talk about abstraction
At the top of the list, but you might as well get pissed
'Cause in me the essence does not exist

You're so shallow, how can your romance hope to be the veil of
An ersatz human nature
That can pacify but never slept well
When there's the pretension of living a lie?

Take me as I am, judge me for my crimes
I can say I'll behave freely all the time
You can predict what I'll say, it's in my DNA
But soon I'll be a catalog number anyway

So say a little prayer
Convince yourself that someone cares
All I am is what you see, there is nothing more than the surface of me
There is nothing more than the surface of me

Apologies to Skinner, but I do believe that I feel like I'm a winner
Having just discovered a long solved modal secret
Of how I always feel
So goddamn downtrodden and desperate

Take me as I am, judge me for my crimes
I can say I'll behave freely all the time
You can predict what I'll say, it's in my DNA
But soon I'll be a catalog number anyway

So say a little prayer
Convince yourself that someone cares
All I am is what you see, there is nothing more than the surface of me
There is nothing more than the surface of me

Take me as I am, judge me for my crimes
I can say I'll behave freely all the time
You can predict what I'll say, it's in my DNA
But soon I'll be a catalog number anyway

So say a little prayer
Convince yourself that someone cares
All I am is what you see, there is nothing more than the surface of me
There is nothing more than the surface of me

What you see is the surface of me
