Symmetry Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Or say you're in a room
And there's a beautiful fire
And you're looking out the window
(At the snow and the winter streets below)
But your eyes keep returning to the fire
Verse 2
This is what I'm thinking
The reason your eyes keep returning to the fire
Is because it divides your sight
Into left and right, and dark and light and dark
Like a fine dividing wire
Verse 3
Here's another thing
That I noticed last night
When he kissed me over there
He usually kissed me over here, too
Verse 4
I must have known it in my heart
And with my inner sense of art
Because when I kiss him over there
I never kiss him over here
Verse 5
It's the way of the world
People do it everywhere
If you're going to do it over here
Then usually they do it over there too
Verse 6
Symmetry is the way things have to be
Symmetry is the way things have to be
Verse 7
Or say you're at a table
And you have your forks and knives
Do you move them around
'Til you get them just right?
(This is while you're talking to someone)
Verse 8
Or you work in a nightclub
And you notice that
Even though you try to seat everyone on one side of the room
They always spread themselves out evenly from this side to that
Like atoms in a model
Verse 9
It's the way of the world
People do it everywhere
If you're going to do it over here
Then usually they do it over there too
Verse 10
Symmetry is the way things have to be
Symmetry is the way things have to be
Verse 11
Or say you're in an air show
And you're flying with two other pilots
And you want to do it right
Because you like to do it right
Verse 12
And one guy is flying
At the tip of your left wing
And the other guy's off
Doing his own thing
Would it bother you?
It bothers me
Verse 13
It's the way of the world
People do it everywhere
If you're going to do it over here
Then usually they do it over there too
Verse 14
Symmetry is the way things have to be
Symmetry is the way things have to be
