"Adjust Your Set" as written by Mark Hockings and Richard James Silverthorn....
Tastes like wine this
Life is complex and complete
Everything you want is at your feet

I always say the wrong thing
I always do the wrong thing
I always say the wrong thing
I always do the wrong thing

I can’t be the teacher
Adjust your set, I’m not your preacher
But I can never walk away
I can’t change the outcome
But just look back to where you’ve come from
No, I can’t tell you what to say

Friends have motives
Time is faithful and discrete
All the things you did it won’t repeat

I always say the wrong thing
I always do the wrong thing
I always say the wrong thing
I always do the wrong thing

I can’t be the teacher
Adjust your set, I’m not your preacher
But I can never walk away
I can’t change the outcome
But just look back to where you’ve come from
No, I can’t tell you what to say

I want to see symmetry in love
I want to look perfect from above
I want to make space in me for you
All of these things I just can’t do
I want to see life a different way
Taking on the old guard every day
If I could do half of what I said
You would sleep safe in your bed.

I can’t be the teacher
Adjust your set, I’m not your preacher
But I can never walk away
I can’t change the outcome
But just look back to where you’ve come from
No, I can’t tell you what to say

I want to see symmetry in love
I want to look perfect from above
I want to make space in me for you
All of these things I just can’t do
I want to see life a different way
Taking on the old guard every day
If I could do half of what I said
You would sleep safe in your bed

    My InterpretationThis song seems to describe someone in a relationship who is trying to guide their partner to be a better person, but they're having a hard time doing that due to not fully reconciling issues from their own past.
