You are red and blue and green,
living like a living computer glitch.
You could change to anything.
All you gotta do is just hit the switch.

You are muscle, flesh and bone,
living in the land of automobiles.
If you ever lose your shoes,
all you gotta do is just click your heels.


Symmetry's overrated, methinks.
Look at the scars all over the Sphinx.


Do you know that when you blink
each eye winks slightly out of sync?


Symmetry's overrated, methinks.
Sook at the scars all over the Sphinx.
Even the planet spins with a tilt.
Everybody's built like a quilt.

Have you heard the awful truth?
Cursed asymmetricals go to hell.
If you trip and lose a tooth
you gotta knock the other side out as well.

Gouge both eyes out and you'll see
empty sockets everywhere: self abyss.
Fill them up with mercury
so that I can see myself when we kiss.


Symmetry's overrated, methinks.
Look at the scars all over the Sphinx.


Even the planet spins with a tilt.
Everybody's built like a quilt.
Trees in the forest fall to the side.
Everybody's got something to hide,
except for me and my suitcase
full of imperfections.
If the court has no objections...


Symmetry's overrated, methinks.
Look at the scars all over the Sphinx.
I am lopsided, and so are you.
Nothing worth loving isn't askew.

    My InterpretationThe meaning of the song is pretty straight foward, that nothing perfect is worth loving, which always made me think of a study done on faces, perfectly symmetrical faces were considered by almost all people to be ugly, while faces that were not perfect(normal people's faces) were considered much more atractive. I also see it as a "in your face" to neat, and people who like to have everything symmetrical, The mona lisa, the sphynx, all not symmetrical and by far not perfect.
