Oh yeah!

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, no

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
And 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

Oh yeah

Apologies to Skinner
But I do believe I feel like I'm a winner
Having just discovered a long-solved modal secret
Of why 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
And 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
And 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
