Don't Should On Me

lyrics

Two men come and disagree to agree
Both one to the other saying what should be
Each climbing higher up self righteous towers
And catapulting “shoulds” back and forth just empowers them
Don’t get me wrong i’m the king of it
Just a little bit hippy hypocrite winging it
Sometimes thinking that i’m knowing everything of it
And putting my should inside a song and singing it

Should as it should maybe sounds absurd
But should could be heard almost every other word
When you should on your friends it’s bad for the health
But you got to be careful not to should on yourself
These Towers of Babel all inevitably fall
With cracks in the walls and the building implodes
From the wreckage and rubble we rebuild another bubble
Cause that’s the way the monkey mind goes

With a “should do this!” and a “should do that!”
Everybody’s just trying to do good
But how many shoulds would a good man say
If he could stop would he stop shoulds
Oh my friend for the wounds to mend
There’s only one thing we should do
Don’t you should on me and i won’t drop my shoulds on you

Frequencies unfold in our numskulls
Like a spark in a dark cave
Where the light and sound waves
Pave a way to mental higher ground
All the little thoughts we collect
Turned them into bricks with our intellect
Build a tower in your hypothalamus and cortex
Our own fortress in our cerebellum
We can carry our convictions to the roof and yell ‘em
At the top of our lungs standing on the top rung
