I can't do the real thing
I hurt all my feelings
You gotta keep it kind
You make it a mean while

What a shameful way to be the same

But I need you to be
Better than me
And you need me to do
Better than you

I disarm you in the morning
I disarm you in the morning
I disarm you in the morning
But I was up in arms all night

And now it comes
I am too, too sleepy to fight

Know better and learn faster
Know better and learn faster
Learn faster
Learn faster

But I need you to be
Better than me
And you need me to do
Better than you

    General Comment"The album is named 'Know Better Learn Faster' because you can't," explains Thao. "By the time you realize you should, it's too late. And I enjoy the predicament and the totally devastating, unfunny humor of that."
