Strange Reunions

Album: Odd Blood (2010)
  • Don't ask me for any favors
    And I won't ask how you're doing.
    Leave me alone
    'Cause after all,
    Dealing with you is a nuisance.

    Ever since I was young I've been wondering this,
    Why we walk on eggshells around the wholly dimwitted
    And if your tongue slips we might have to take to task
    With all of our hallowed institutions.

    Don't ask me for any favors
    And I won't ask how you're doing.
    Leave me alone
    'Cause after all,
    Dealing with you is a nuisance.

    If you could laugh at yourself what difference would it make?
    You could ignore dang cartoons and you wouldn't turn into prey.
    But if distance persists we'll preach to choirs raising high.
    Well, needless, I will raise a celebration.

    This feud is getting old.
    No one is gonna be told to go along.
    Most of the questions
    Have easy answers.
    Our only chance is let them be wrong.

    Don't ask me for any favors
    And I won't ask how you're doing.
    Leave me alone
    'Cause after all,
    Dealing with you is a nuisance.Writer/s: Anand Mathew Wilder, Christopher E Keating, Ira Wolf Tuton
