There was I time when I loved
There was a time when I'd laugh
They say that ignorance is bliss
I wish I didn't know that
Cause I've got answers
To the questions I asked
And I can see the future
It's just the present and past
And the secret of life
Is that there ain't one at all
You play with matches, you burn
You slip and trip, and you fall
And I've got answers
Cause I don't wanna know why
They say the truth will set you free
And I say that's a lie

I've got answers
I guess I've had em all along
I'd rather have cancer
Than fucking write another song
And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda strange
All you care about's the money
And I just want a little change

There was a time when I could smile
There was a time when I could cry
Now I'm always doing both
I'm so alive I could die
Be careful what you wish for
You might just get it after all
You'd better hit the ground running
Or hope that building's fucking tall

I've got answers
I guess I've had em all along
I'd rather have cancer
Than fucking write another song
And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda strange
All you care about's the money
And I just want a little change

At the end of the rainbow is a penny jar
I found the keys to life and then I locked em in my car
Mona Lisa's got her smile cause Leo took her to the bar
And you can burn yourself alive with just the twinkle of a star
The chicken crossed the road because he hated the farm
That's why McNuggets taste like metal; he got hit by a car
The sky's just blue cause the days are so dark
And you just sit on your ass, that's how I know you're bound to go far

I've got answers
I guess I've had em all along
I'd rather have cancer
Than fucking write another song
And I find it kinda funny
I find it kinda strange
All you care about's the money
And I just want a little change
