doesn't really matter what we do,
doesn't really matter, doesn't matter what we do
if it really mattered what we did,
wicked wouldn't get ahead and karma wouldn't be a bunch of punishment for advocating gratitude for the rest of us kids still,
tryin to get ahead by tryin to keep it honest all the time,
honestly, not the kind of guy that's constantly,
tryin ta change a persons mind, by
tryin ta change the image in their minds eye, with lies, implied, from inside,
where the dark side resides and hides out of sight and mind,
in fact, that just wouldn't be right,
and my soul wouldn't like it,
I'd rather take my time with the long view,
in the big picture, cuz it really doesn't matter what we do...
wait a. minute.
Long winded cynic, are we finished?
we're scattered like dust to the wind,
with the right amount of light. touch.
in pessimism and forgiveness,
so give in,
to where my skepticism wrecks my perfect inner vision and affects the perfect rhythm,
get to where we couldn't get a thought in edgewise,
and the decimal would move him,
instead he'd move the pen in the opposite direction,
reguardless of the method,
he'd forget to mention that he's too afraid to live, but
too afraid to die
should it really matter what we do, it
shouldn't really matter but it couldn't really hurt us if we had a better attitude,
to navigate us through the dark into the lighter side
to gravitate to lower tides,
so tiring when we try to take the high road all the time
and we find,
that we just climbed,
a relentless steady incline, to the sky
to remind us why we,
try to get a head with this brand new method, just invented,
it's called first person perspective,
doesn't always work the same in practice, as in theory,
fact is, couldn't be said more clearly
indeed it seems we need more space, to think selfishly.
help me, help you, help me help myself
with this self help magazine and some elbow grease,
set your brain free,
from this brain freeze,
we'll get it clean with this brainwash, shouldn't take too aweful long,
by the epilogue and long run,
we'll get this knowledge all gone, by the time this song's done
like, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind 'n'
you can get along with your life, and realize...
that it doesN'T really matter what we do.
