  • Sometimes I feel like my heart turns to dust
    Unfollow the rules
    Unswallow the trust
    Sometimes I feel like my brain turns to leaves
    Unfollow the rules
    Uncover the thieves of the game

    Sometimes I reel in a fish far too small
    Back into the sea, hook, sinker and all
    And beyond ruins from before the fall
    Stop looking and see
    And just heed the call of the plebes
    Just like Hercules in Thebes was just
    By just being a man

    But I'm no Hercules
    And this is Herculean
    Tomorrow I will just be feeling the pain

    Don't give me what I want
    Just give me what I'm needing
    Unfollow the rules
    Unfollow the path to the seeding

    I'll never know
    But perhaps I'll have a feeling
    Unfollow the rules
    Unfollow the wrath to the stealing

    But I'm no Hercules
    And this is Herculean
    Tomorrow I will just be feeling the pain

    Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
    Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
    Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
    Da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da, da
    Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

    No, I'm no Hercules
    And this is Herculean
    Tomorrow I will just be feeling the pain

    Don't give me what I want
    Just give me what I'm needing
    I will never know
    But perhaps I'll have a feeling
    Don't give me what I want
    Just give me what I'm needing
    I will never know
    But perhaps I'll have a feeling
