The Songs : Whiskey & Women

You're such a fool
you even believe yourself
much like all the men who bow before you
and you make the rules
but don't give a damn about anyone else
with not one regret for the evil you do

I don't know how you sat around
and watched those people drown

I heard some people swear you're a good man
but just like whiskey and women
these things, I'll never understand
just like whiskey and women
it's you I don't understand

I can't explain
why your friends love the way you think
as if you're someone who thoughts occur to
And it hurts my brain
every time that I hear you speak
when you talk down like we don't deserve you

I do believe
you've lost all feeling
You anger me
simply by breathing

I don't know how you sat around
and watched those people drown
and inside your hollow, little town
you're still getting down

It kills me that you win even when you lose
and how you act so smug but always look confused
to keep us in line with fear, was that your plan?
but just like whiskey and women
these things, I'll never understand
just like whiskey and women
it's you I don't understand

I can't comprehend your incomprehension
but I sure understand defiant pretension
I think I figured out how you get inspired
I just haven't done the amount of cocaine required
so I'll never know
I'll never know
I'll never know why you hate me so

And just like whiskey and women
these things, I'll never understand
just like whiskey and women
it's you I don't understand
