You were a victim of common sense
Y was a crack in the concave lens
And when you opened your mouth
It was always in self-defense

We could have been at the top of our game
could have come up with a brand new name
But we ran out of grass
and bacardi just ain't the same

Hey, it's probably better this way
It saves me the trouble to say
What I really want to say

No, your wife doesn't have a clue
because she's never been introduced
to the degenerate fake
I used to mistake for you

You know it isn't a real big deal
I guess I'll never know how you feel
'Cause when you open up your mouth
nothing comes out

Hey, it's probably better this way
It saves me the trouble to say
What I really want to say

    General CommentThis may be a reference to the breakup of Pedro the Lion. He is talking about the problems he had with David Bazan that made impossible to be in a band with him, see also: fewer moving parts by david bazan.
