Reason Ain't Our Long Suit

We turned our questions into burning obsessions.

Some asked: "Why me?"
Others cried: "Why everybody else except me? Accept me!"

Answers proved aloof or elusive
and always seemed to be conducive to mood swings.
With tempers flaring we took those tattered chi's
and ideologies out of their vaults.
Our faults aren't our fault.

Now we're better than ever. (Now we're better than ever)
We drowned our problems in the whiskey.
The bottom of the bottle dripped as clean as our conscience
and we slept unconscious.
We smoked our drugs and cigarettes to cleanse regrets,
Now we betted on regretting the outcome.
We did, and then some
We rinsed our nicotine stained fingers double clean.

We dropped back to default. Our faults aren't our fault.


(1, 2, 3, 4)
Regressions left our lessons laid out for our attention.
A tension left us open to change.
Three cheers for hoping!
Reason ain't our long suit.

laid out for our attention.
A tension left us open to change.
Three cheers for hoping!
Reason ain't our long suit.

laid out for our attention.
A tension left us open to change.
Three cheers for hoping!
