BECAUSE WE CAN LYRICS 

WHY YOU BOTHER


YOU ROLLED OVER

FULL EXPOSURE

UNDERBELLY

IT'S PRETTY UGLY


I WISH I COULD HAVE TUNED INTO YOUR STATION

ALWAYS GETTING SIDETRACKED BY THIS AND THAT


STD'S

PREGNANCIES 

BROKEN HEARTS

NIGHTMARES REPLACE DREAMS


EITHER WAY I'LL BE A BETTER PERSON

EITHER WAY I'LL NEVER HIDE MY LOVE

STAND ME UP AND THEN YOU KNOCK ME OVER

EITHER WAY IT WON'T GO DOWN LIKE THIS

AGAIN, AGAIN AGAIN AGAIN…


I CAN'T SEE HOW YOU COULD JUST FLIP A SWITCH

I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THERE IS NOTHING LEFT




SALT


LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER

I DON'T REMEMBER ENTERING A RACE

NO LONGER UP FOR A CONTEST

OH, COMPARING TOO MUCH TO CHANGE


WHY DOES IT GO DOWN LIKE THIS HERE?

WHY DON'T YOU TEACH WITH LOVE INSTEAD OF FEAR?


DRIP, DRIP, DRIP, DRIP IN YOUR SINK

TIP, TIP, TIP OVER, CAPSIZE

TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK DON'T YOU THINK, DON'T YOU THINK, DON'T YOU THINK…AT ALL? 


THROW IT OVER YOUR SHOULDER

USE IT TO PRESERVE YOUR ANIMALS

SPRINKLE A BIT OVER YOUR HOT PLATE OF LUNCH

OH, EXCHANGE IT WITH EVERY PERSON THAT YOU TOUCH


WHY DOES IT GO DOWN LIKE THIS HERE?

WHY DON'T YOU TEACH WITH LOVE INSTEAD OF FEAR?


DRIP, DRIP, DRIP, DRIP IN YOUR SINK

TIP, TIP, TIP OVER, CAPSIZE

TICK, TICK, TICK, TICK DON'T YOU THINK, DON'T YOU THINK, DON'T YOU THINK…AT ALL?


OOOOOOOOOO 




TOTALLY TOTALITARIAN

SWISHING AND A SWASHING IN THE COMMON SLIME

USELESS INFORMATION AT THE SCENE OF THE CRIME

OOGIE BOOGIE RITUALS, THE BOOGETY MAN

SHOOT AND DESTROY TOTALITARIAN

POINT AND CLICK

KILL, KILL, KILL

HUMAN SACRIFICE AND A MOUSTACHE TWIRL

ASTROLOGICAL PAGAN DEVIL HORNS

HEEBIE HEEBIE GEEBIES

HEEBIE HEEBIE GEEBIES

LISTENING TO THE DOGS LIKE THE SON OF SAM

OOGIE BOOGIE RITUALS THE BOOGETY MAN

ASTROLOGICAL PAGAN DEVILS HORNS

AND THAT'S WHERE I'LL STAY

I'VE BEEN AROUND (JUST LIKE YOU HAVE)

BUT NOT IN THAT WAY


WHY DON'T YOU DO ME A FAVOR

SHUT THE FUCK UP

I'VE REALIZED I CAN'T STAND YOU

AT LEAST NOT VERY MUCH


I'VE BEEN DOWN (I'VE BEEN DOWN, I'VE BEEN DOWN)

AND THAT'S WHERE I'LL STAY

I'VE BEEN AROUND (JUST LIKE YOU HAVE)

BUT NOT IN THAT WAY




I DON'T THINK I LIKE YOU VERY MUCH THESE DAYS IN MY MID-TWENTIES


DON'T YOU THINK 

IT'S TIME FOR YOU TO MOVE ALONG 

TODAY 

AND WOULDN'T YOU SAY 

THAT YOU'D BE BETTER OFF SOMEWHERE 

AWAY FROM ME


WE'VE DECIDED

IT'S TIME FOR US TO CHANGE YOUR SITUATION

DON'T BE LATE

YOUR RIDES ALREADY WAITING AT THE BUS STATION


NO MATTER WHERE I GO

I ALWAYS MOVE REAL SLOW

OH OH OH

NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO

I DON'T CARE 'CAUSE I DON'T LIKE YOU


NO MATTER WHERE I GO

OH OH OH

NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO

I DON'T CARE 'CAUSE I DON'T LIKE YOU

OH OH OH

I DON'T CARE 'CAUSE I DON'T LIKE YOU


NO MATTER WHERE I GO

YOU ASSUME THAT YOU MAY BE CURSED


I WANT YOU TO KNOW

IT'S YOU NO MATTER WHERE I GO

I'D LIKE FOR YOU TO BE

INSIDE MY HEAD INSTEAD OF ME


IT'S NICE OF YOU TO LET ME KNOW

I LIKE TO HEAR I TOLD YOU SO

I HOPE NO MATER WHAT IT TAKES

THE THIRST, THE BLOOD, THE STOMACH ACHES


I WANT YOU TO KNOW

IT'S YOU NO MATTER WHERE I GO

I'D LIKE FOR YOU TO BE

INSIDE MY HEAD INSTEAD OF ME




A PRIORI


I FEEL LIKE PULLING A VAN GOGH

GRAB A BLADE AND SLICING OFF A LOBE

MIGHT BE TOO REACTIONARY

YOU THOUGHT YOU FOUND MATURITY


I APOLOGIZE

FOR MY LACK OF 

A PRIORI


IGNORE THE WOLLY MAMMOTH IN THE ROOM

YOU'RE ALL LIQUORED UP NOW, I PRESUME

THERE ARE SIDES TO YOU YOU'VE NEVER SHOWN

RATHER SPECULATE THAN REALLY KNOW


I APOLOGIZE

FOR MY LACK OF 

A PIORI


WHAT'S THAT SAY ABOUT HIM

MOVING IN ON A DRUNKEN WHIM

REKINDLING

WHAT'S THAT SAY ABOUT HIM

MOVING IN ON A DRUNKEN WHIM



YOU MUST LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF

BEFORE YOU CAN RECEIVE FROM SOMEONE ELSE

EMBRACE LOVE AND JUST LET GO

EMBRACE LOVE AND JUST LET GO


I APOLOGIZE

FOR MY LACK OF 

A PRIORI


IF THERE'S A MORAL
