Carry the Zero - Built to Spill

I'm not knocking your want
To carry that home

Took it with you
When you moved and got it broke

We counted them all alone

Found the pieces
Forgot to carry a zero
Didn't add up

I can't be your
Apologist very long

I'm surprised that
You'd want to carry that on

Count your blemishes
They're all gone

You can't
Putting them back on
I can't see your response

Like they're waiting for your guard to fall
So they can see it all and you're so
Occupied with what other persons are
Occupied with
And vice versa

And you've become

What you thought was dumb
A fraction of the sum
Yeah, you have become

Yeah, you've become
A fraction of the sum
The middle and the front

And now it's coming back
Hasn't it come too far?
I was trying to help but I guess

I pushed too hard

Afraid it'll fall apartnow we can't even touch it
