The Lyrics

What's it like to be the middleman in the age-old practice of passing notes in class?
Passed on a small paper message
There was no way to know the content, I won't check it
That type of thing's private, won't find out, never know
'Til it gets read by the teacher
I try to be beneath notice
Though I'll still be takin' part, I can't be in focus
Refrain from bein' the real huge
Weak link in the middle, I'm always there, it's weird, dude
I don't start nor do I receive 'cept to hand on, what a state

Notes I have passed on, little words or letters
One small-ass message might help jerk-types cheat
I don't know what, I wash my hands, I sever
Any connection it might have to me
May not be an angel but at least I'm free

I've found that I've spread such gossip
Like who's left town and who's a total trollop
I feel bad, at least for ten minutes, maybe twenty
But the way this crap evolves, the fallout's pretty empty
Know what I mean? It's total bollocks, it's true, no-one feels down
Huge jerks aren't as pleased (not pleased)
That their victims don't get sad or mad at me
That's right, I'm set up as the scapegoat
'Cause I can't stop myself, afraid so
It's like my hands are a machine line each time

Notes I have passed on haven't done much damage
And so it's hard to care when folks ask me
'Bout what I've passed on, 'cause they're not as savage
As one would really expect them to be
Don't feel like a devil, just a reflex, see

I am gonna have to confess
If someone beats a test thanks to my odd reflex
Of reachin' for small papers
Right when I hear a "Pssst!", that silence breaker
Closest arm extends real quickly to take the little thing
Switch hands and that note's making
It on its way, not contemplating
What could be on it, just a cycle
No time to refuse, instinct quite primal
Except that it built up in just months, not eons, excuse less solid

Notes I have passed on, I don't know the numbers
Do you keep track each time you blink or sneeze?
It's so subconscious, happens when I slumber
Finished a test, I've earned a little sleep
Those who are not angels still find use for me
Notes I have passed on without falls or stumbles
None on the floor to be found easily
Notes I have passed on with no fails, no bumbles
One day, I'll regret what I've done, but see
Don't feel like the devil right now, I'm just me

To answer the question: I wouldn't know, I've never done it. Nor have I been the passer or the receiver.
