Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse -
It does!
And you find yourself in the same situation you were trying to avoid
All these things you say are none of which you do -
And those mistakes are the same mistakes that come back and haunt you!

Hey I'm not trying to be pessimistic I'm just not optimistic
(Yeah right)
It's action for reaction without any action or reaction
It's a domino effect without any dominos
Just shucking bad old washed-out replicas of yourself

All those things you say
And none of which you do
And all those things you do
And none of which you meant, yeah

Well, have you ever heard the voice of misconception?
(I have!)
It plays in my head over and over again like a broken record
I tried drinking, but that didn't work
I just spent all my money on my days in a daze
And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse
(It does)

So I took a vacation to the other side of the block
It was a bit dark there but I liked it a lot
So I moved all my shit and started a business -
It was called "Give Me Your Money Or I'll Stab You With Scissors"!
I started screaming and I didn't know why
I just wanted some soda to go with my fries

All these things you say
Are none of what you do
And all those things you do
Are none of what you meant, yeah

Hey I'm not bad I'm just misunderstood
And those mistakes you make are the same mistakes that come back and haunt you!

    General CommentThis song is really brilliantly stupid. I think it's about just making decisions and how some don't work out, and some are just stupid. Some don't work out BECAUSE they're stupid.

    The line "So I moved all my shit and started a business - It was called "Give Me Your Money Or I'll Stab You With Scissors!" It's just an all-around funny song, but I still think it has a message.
