The Way Things Are
I wouldn't know what to do with another chance
If you gave it to me
I couldn't take the embrace of a real romance
It'd race right through me

I'm much better off the way things are
Much, much better off
Better by far, by far

I wouldn't know what to say to a gentle voice
It'd roll right past me
And if you chalk it up, you'll see I really don't have a choice
So don't even ask me

I'm much better off the way things are
Much, much better off
Better by far, by far

So keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on
And I'll keep kicking the crap 'til it's gone
If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle
And as soon as I settle, I bet I'll be able to move on

How can I fight
When we're on the same side?
How can I fight beside you?

So keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on
And I'll keep kicking the crap 'til it's gone
If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle
And as soon as I settle, I bet I'll be able to move on

Keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on
And I'll keep kicking the crap 'til it's gone
If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle
And as soon as I settle, I bet I'll be able to move ona
