There’s an old sayin’ that anything good
Will come around whenever it should,
But I don’t believe them.
It seems to me that everything just happens.

There’s an idea that when you’re in love
It’s gonna last forever, cause it’s what a lover does,
But it seems strange to me.
If it don’t bring you joy, give it up and get some new company

There’s an odd habit with people, it seems,
To put off a passion and make more time for money,
But I don’t understand.
If you know what you like then why would you have any other plan.

And there’s something missing between people and the land.
They’ll fill it with their rubbish and then praise it for being so grand.
They take care of their responsibilities;
When it comes time for fighting they’ll hide on their private properties

But I ain’t an angel, and I ain’t a saint,
I’ve got barely any answers and a whole lot to say.
I’m just like anyone:
I wish every person would do what I’ve always done.
