Lyrics

I'm a man, believe it or not
I'm a man who knows what he wants
Though what I can get is another matter yet
I'm a fan of all that you've got
But I'll start with what's on the top
Our meeting of minds can begin another time

Cos we give lip-service to equality
But we're in the service of biology
And your perfect surface is the calling of my genes

There's no symmetry between you and me
In terms of what we wish, in terms of what we seek
And all this talk of oneness is just fantasy
There's no symmetry between you and me
Regarding what we think, regarding what we feel
Before we take things forward we need clarity

I'm a man, believe it or not
Do a turn, you'll get a response
Though whether you will is another matter still
Can't escape my hateful desires
It's the way my brain has been wired
And if I denied it I'd only be a liar

Well I know we're working for equality
But I'm in the service of the throb I feel
When the mist descends you're going to get objectified

There's no symmetry between you and me
In terms of what we wish, in terms of what we seek
And all this talk of oneness is just fantasy
There's no symmetry between you and me
Regarding what we think, regarding what we feel
Before there's any progress we need honesty

I will share your hopes and your dreams
If you'll share what lies in between
Yeah we could be great with a little give and taken

Our aims are never going to be agreed
But time has ironed out a kind of deal
You'll get what you want if you give me what I need

There's no symmetry between you and me
In terms of what we wish, in terms of what we seek
I'm sure I'm not the first to say this openly
There's no symmetry between you and me
Regarding what we think, regarding what we feel
Before there's any progress we need honesty
