Education Lyrics

Call it education it was somewhere in between
You gave me some sound advice but I wasn't listening
After we had capsized I couldn't tell you how you'd fall
Well, I'm not sure if I'd laid to rest on the ceiling or the wall

Not quite conversation it was somewhere in between
You said everything is taught and I listened patiently
All this dog and pony still monkeys the whole time
We could not help from flinging shit in our modern suits and ties

Our instincts, they were cringing about how we lived our lives
It didn't seem we'd lived enough to even get to die
All these dense distractions so beautifully complex
Well, I love life's surprises so much I don't want to know what's a-hea-head

Stubborn shouted and said "I don't do what you do" I don't know,
Could it really hear highly if you highly care? And you don't
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty, oh, very well

Hardly education it was somewhere in between
Oh, I hit the roof but I had aimed for the ceiling

Hardly education all them books I didn't read
They just sat there on my shelf looking much smarter than me
Good old Nostradamus he knew the whole damn time
There'd always be an east from west and someone is there fighting

Stubborn shouted and said "I don't do what you do" I don't know,
Could it really hear highly if you highly care? And you don't
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty, oh, very well

Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty I don't know anyway
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty I don't know
Could it really hear highly if you highly care? and you don't
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty uh, oh, very well, then
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty oh, very well, then
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty oh, very well, then
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty oh, very well, then
Oh, very well, then
