I am a simple man
With an unsimple mind
"What's my kind like?"
You may ask me,
You may ask anyone!
To find the answer though,
Definately an uneasy task.
I tell you the truth,
that has been my search.
The reason for the upturned earth.
Hopefully you can wash away
my confusion and dillusion.
Beware my flood of tears,
if you succeed in your quest.
For that is all that is left.
Tears and Fears abound
in this one horse town
you call my soul.
Can you ever make me whole?

Wow, jfreak...this one can have a multitude of meanings behind it.  My answer (hehehe), yes, no, maybe.  It depends on the interpretation.  Enjoyed this a bunch!
