"The Apologist" as written by and Michael Mills Peter Buck....
They call me the apologist
And now that I'm at peak
You know at first it really hurt
We joke about these things
I've skirted all my differences
But now I'm facing up
I wanted to apologize for
Everything I was so

I'm sorry, so sorry
So sorry, so sorry
So sorry, so sorry
So sorry

Did you understand me right?
The people here are good
They tell me what I should have done
And offer what I could
I'm good, all is good
All's well, no complaints
When I feel regret
I get down on my knees and pray

I'm sorry, so sorry
So sorry, so sorry
So sorry, so sorry
So sorry, so sorry

I live a simple life
Unfettered by complex sweets
You think this isn't me?
Don't be weak
There I go
I'm so sorry

Thank you for being there for me
Thank you for listening, goodbye
I can forfeit selfishness
I hope for you that you apply
This happiness
This peacefulness
This peacefulness

I'm sorry, so sorry
So sorry, so sorry
So sorry, so sorry
So sorry

I live a simple life
Unfettered by complex sweets
You think this isn't me?
You're so sweet
I'm so sorry

Thank you for being there for me
Thank you for listening, goodbye

    General CommentThe "institution" of confession in the catholic church comes to mind. Especially related to parts:
    "When I feel regret,
    I get down on my knees and pray."
    and
    "Thank you for being there for me.
    Thank you for listening, goodbye."
    Michael seems to criticize how some people feel that they can make things right by showing remorse, and in time it can become a habit: thinking about the confession and regret even as you're doing the deed...
