You said you're never gonna make it truly stick And that turned out true but what can you do It turned out true but what can you do It turned out true but what can you do Hm, let's think... You can plot out the end game, rebuild the mainframe Drink a bunch of stuff without referencing a brand name You could empty your heart and refill it with aspartame Wait a couple years and do the same thing again And sure I could be famous-er but I could be aimless-er And in the grand scheme certain things could be painless-er But anyone can wonder why they do what they do to begin with Believe it or not I've been sipping out of cans They say cans give you cancer but so do certain plants And certain stances In some places certain dances give you cancer So I keep sipping out of cans And if you don't hold on tight you might lose me If you don't hold on tight that might be an improvement If you don't hold on tight I just might not invite you back in So then guess what? We get back together then we get back apart And everyone just does what they were doing in the first place Once we got slightly bolder it was better getting on Then someone had to wonder where you go to once you're gone The devil's in the details, the devil's in your emails The devil's gonna sell your soul and mark it up for retail And I'm gonna buy it cuz I can't resist a good sale So then we get back together Then we get back apart And everyone just does what they were doing in the first place Once we got slightly bolder it was better getting on Then someone had to wonder where you go to once you're gone And it's hard to think about this world It's hard to clot the wobblin It's hard to keep the curses out To put a stop to the sobbin I'm trying to get you less completely
