lyrics

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
