lyrics

Why you playing foolish games
You know the shit ain't changed
You know that I'm the same dude I've always been
You wanna act a fool
Talking all that bullshit
When this is the same damn attitude that drew you in
You can run off your mouth cause it's OK
But I remember all the shit that you told me
I know I know that you got love for me
I got love for you
You can talk till your voice gets hoarse
Your lips get chapped and your tongue gets sore
But I don't know what you all worked up for
What do you want me to do?
You’re running out of oxygen
‘Cause everybody’s holding their breath
You take a story, run with it,
And tell it ‘til you beat it to death
And you still do it best,
‘Cause you’re easy
But I can’t take it much longer, and
I’m getting depressed
You escape and resist arrest
You say you’re obsessed,
Then deny you confessed
But I must admit, I’m impressed-
You believe me.

You could learn a lesson from me
Why you always messing with me?
If you'd act professionally
Then things could potentially be alright
If you can't say what's on your mind
Then I can't afford to waste my time
If you wanna look behind and be blind
Well that's just fine, let's end it tonight
Because you can give me every line in the book
Every tried and true time-tested tired old look
You can getaway feeling like a small time crook
And I'll do what I want to do
And if there's nothing else you want to say I'll split
Cause the fact of the matter is I ain't your bitch
So why you always giving me the bait and switch?
Girl, just tell me the truth
And now, when everything you ever thought
You wanted only gets in the way
You run into the audience and
Yell at her and tell her to stay
And that’s all you say
‘Cause you need her
You think it’s out of your hands
And you have only to wait
For the next little move she’ll make
‘Cause you’re long overdue for a big mistake
And you know whose heart it’ll break if you leave her

Ain’t a damn thing changed,
Rivals get slain and leave deep red blood stains
On King James Bibles
We still reprimand sinners begging on bent knees
For absolution for fucking with Seven Against Thebes
We’re big game hunters
Who still kill one-hit wonders
And big names with flames and box cutters
We do it for the Dionysian revelers
Then submit it to the critics who applaud the textual exegesis

Ain't a damn thing changed,
Ain't a damn thing changed.
KGW still runs this game,
We got it locked and ain't a damn thing changed, motherfucker.
Ain't a damn thing changed,
Ain't a damn thing changed.
You try to copy but it's not the same.
We got it locked and ain't a damn thing changed, motherfucker. (Repeat)
