​Grin

This song is by Guster and appears on the album Goldfly (1997).

Absent in the things I've done
For the real revelations come to people so slow
Frightening.
Won't stop now before they're done
Peel their skin eaten underneath.
Rotten Rotten

Drowning in understanding
Swallowed poison keeps them well
But watching the others struggle through makes me grin
Should I tell the mindless stumbling through
That I have found it?

Watching all the things they've done
This is real when revolution comes from misguided hands
Frightening.
And in all the idiots I see
Thoughtless men casting doubts on me.
Enlightening.

Drowning in understanding
Swallowed poison keeps them well
But watching the others struggle through makes me grin
Should I tell the mindless stumbling through
That I have found it?

They'll turn the vice once
And slowly break your hand
Will it come back you now
Just like it never left?

Peel away their faith their fears
Have led them toward the first one
See the way their minds have glazed
They're looking towards the worst one.
