i wish that you would move to the sun
cause you're like diggin' holes in thin air
and we know that can't be done

i wish that you would cheat with someone
cause you're like diggin' holes in water
and we know that can't be done

bravery and stupidity go hand in hand
i guess that makes me the bravest man
i was quick to learn but slow to understand
well, what can you do

my theories are borrowed from somewhere else
and i never had too many to talk about
but you were real quick, you were quick to point out
well, that was borrowed too

i wish that you would move to the sun
cause you're like diggin' holes in thin air
and we know that can't be done

i wish that you would cheat with someone
cause you're like diggin' holes in water
and we know that can't be done

bravery and stupidity go hand in hand
and i guess that makes me the bravest man
i was quick to learn but slow to understand
well, what can you do

rhetoric and smalltalk are marching on
and i probably am the biggest pawn
cause i was quick to talk and the first to carry on
well, what can you do

you need a permit if you're gonna build shit
and you can't get one so nothing gets built
and your house is standing on a foot and a half of silt

i wish that you would move to the sun
cause you're like diggin' holes in thin air
and we know that can't be done

i wish that you would cheat with someone
cause you're like diggin' holes in water
and we know that can't be done

rhetoric and smalltalk are marching on
and i probably am the biggest pawn
cause i was quick to talk and the first to carry on
well, what can you do

    General CommentMy favorite song at the moment because of the lyrics.

    "bravery and stupidity go hand in hand
    i guess that makes me the bravest man"

    ^ I can relate to that so well.

    General CommentHe wants her to cheat on him so he'll have an excuse to end it. He's too weak to do it otherwise.

    General Commentyou like goiong round in circles
    pickin fights that cant be solved
    and the knowledge i do speak may not be from my own theory or opinion
    but it fits well with the situation
    and you call me on it, "its not original"
    and start diggin holes in water again.

    General CommentI think this is my favorite Ugly Casanova song. Don't ask me why. It's kind of my theme song whenever I get an idea....probably because most of my ideas are not very planned out and fall through.

    He wants her to cheat on him so he'll have an excuse to end it. He's too weak to do it otherwise.

    i agree with that
    i was wondering why someone would want a girl to cheat on you
    also so maybe he has a reason to be upset with her
    or just a reason to feel sorry for himself
