Manners and Praise Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Bad Listener I (3:36)
Good guy aren't I?
My world is mine
I know you all must feel so good now
Top of the world but yesterday's gone
Gone now
Bad guy aren't I?
My world is mine

You said you can't, you said you won't
But you walk with the herd now
And soon you'll crash, and then you're done

Great guy aren't I?
Your life not mine
2. Time Is Money (1:11)
3. Be Safe (4:14)
I can't live with myself
I can't live with myself
I can't live with myself
I can't live with myself right now

I could be somewhere else
I can see words in mouths
This whole crowd wears a savage frown

Strange fluid
The ground can speak and gender's defined
Limbs that reach morbidly
Drown the suggestive device
Strange fluid
The ground can speak and gender's defined
Limbs that reach morbidly
Drown the suggestive device
It feels like
It's been days
Since the absurd
Countdown played

One hit to stay sane
Two more to be normal
One trick after another trick
Too much for the mind
For the mind to handle
I can't live with myself right now
4. Elbows Off (2:14)
I'm feeding from the good plates
All manners and praise
I'm feeding from the good plates
All manners and praise

So clean are my clothes
I'll never
I'll never be stained
5. Don't I Know You? (1:32)
You can't say
You don't know
That you fed
Off of us
Woe is me

Now you have
What you want
Woe is you

Woe is you
Woe is me
Bad luck is imaginary
6. Faith in Man (2:33)
They've gathered in
They barely have the room
Some have come along just to say
No one agrees, it won't be happening soon

I think they're sick
But who leads an interesting life?
They're all just on that list
Of folks not to be like

I'm looking down on them
In more ways than one
Faces empty
Pockets fat

Wearing
Their articles of faith
In a trance cause it feels safe
It feels safe

I think they're sick
But who leads an interesting life?
They're all just on that list
Of folks not to be like

Afraid to admit
What make you tick
Faces are mirrors
We must be sick
7. Bitter Son (2:45)
I'm my mothers' son
Whether I like it or not
I'm my fathers' son
Whether I like it or not

Grew up in the creeks
Raised under the trees

I'm my mothers' son
Whether I like it or not
I can't leave
Whether I like it or not

Dirty home
In the sea of trees
8. Go Getter (3:30)
It's a respectable trait
Yet another waste of mental health
Calling it a day
Go getter, what do you expect, faith
Faith or sympathy?
Have you seen?
Everything's been rendered empty
The judges held responsible seem to know
You've served pathetic men and prayed
For gifts that never came
It's just been one big mistake
But it's tempting anyway and you wait anyway
Heavy-weighted, half-assembled proof
That there's nothing we can do

Every last day looks the same
That's why I can't go on
Can't go on
The whole breed is thinly veiled as proof
That there's nothing we can do

The whole breed is thinly veiled as proof
That there's nothing we can do
At least you are
Never alone
9. Magic Words (2:58)
Explain to me how to explain
When words can't come so easily
Infection sits inside my brain
Bringing old age so easily
Wasting away my precious time
Droning away for eight a day

What's left?
Halting our lives?
Sublimity?
It only means living on display

Don't be afraid to
Ask for success

Ask for success
Don't be afraid
10. Half a Holiday (2:52)
Your golden child is still our favorite smoker
Heading east of nowhere with a lovers rose
Heading east of nowhere in his sunday clothes
Heading east of nowhere with a lovers rose

Too weird to live
Too rare to die
Too fucked to care

A special brand
Of casualty
For your special brand
Of urban planning

He's a fortunate son
Silver spoon in hand
Such a fortunate son
Silver spoon in hand
11. Extra Regular (3:45)
Morals of the wise
Have to wait in line
Breathe in the stench of the
Human condition
In spite of all
His discontent

Watch as he cuts his hands
On a safe living
In spite of all
His discontent

Righteous men know nothing

Back up machinery still good
Self serving piety still good
With all that form you'd think
Better they knew everything

Extra regular

Still, I see you're scared
Of strangers walking by
And it makes me wish
We were still alive
12. School (2:19)
We're so thankful for all the years of conditioning
We're so prepared, we're so prepared
When they come for me should I raise my hand?
I'll raise my hand, we're so prepared
So lucky for a chance

Now I
Don't ask why

We're so thankful for all the years of conditioning
We're so prepared, we're so prepared
When they come for me should I raise my hand?
I'll raise my hand, we're so prepared
13. Bad Listener II (3:44)
You really live it
That life you want
But there's no soul on the inside
You said you can't
You said you won't
I'm a good guy aren't I?
You really live it
That life you want
But there's no soul on the inside
You said you can't
You said you won't
I'm a good guy aren't I?

You really live it
That life you want
But there's no soul on the inside
You said you can't
You said you won't
I'm a good guy aren't I?
You really live it
That life you want
But there's no soul on the inside
You said you can't
You said you won't
I'm a good guy aren't I?

You really live it
That life you want
But there's no soul on the inside
You said you can't
You said you won't
I'm a good guy aren't I?
You really live it
That life you want
But there's no soul on the inside
You said you can't
You said you won't
I'm a good guy aren't I?

But there's no soul on the inside
But there's no soul on the inside
But there's no soul on the inside
But there's no soul on the inside
But there's no soul on the inside
