Cannot have this, a perfect conversation
Or coast on silence and lowered expectations out the door
You've spent half your life talking trying to get a pause in edgewise
Swallow poison tongues, oppose your thumbs, believe in nothing

Cannot have a nature change, one more time
You cannot have a nature change, cause the bastard changes

Cannot have this, you see how so much time has wasted
To take a clenched fist and see how quiet calm replaced it
You say you'll never trust again, I'll never trust again
Who has time? You give that up on never finding the one you've been waiting for, but

Cannot have a nature change, one more time
You cannot have a nature change, cause the bastard changes

Well I got no more time to spend on arguers
Devil's advocates and nasty bits of fits of desperation
"Lawrence of Arabia," sir Alex said to Peter
"What I owe you is beyond evaluation now"

Extend to me your hand, I'll nibble on your fingers
Bend to me your sweet ear, I'll gnaw it from its hinges now wooh!

Cannot have a nature change, one last time
Yeah thats why ladies love cool james, cause the bastard changes

    General Commenti think this is about LL COOL J the rapper, cos i think it means "ladies love cool James"

    so they're baisacally calling him a bastard which is fair enough :)

    General CommentI think it's about someone who isn't easily able to adapt to changes. They desperately search for how to fit in and act normally.

    When he says nature change, he might mean human nature?

    But anyways the guy is pissed off because everytime he figures it all out, things change. I agree with thenextpope about the LL Cool J reference. LL Cool J means Ladies Love Cool James. I think LL Cool J serves as a reference to someone that gets it. So the narrator hates him because he gets society and the narrator struggles to do so.
