lyrics

What I see is what I get
What I see is what I get
What we see it what we get
And what I see is what I get

What you see is what you get tell me I’m wrong don’t even try it
I won’t even listen to your song long enough too see if your strong enough
To justify it
Just defy it is more like what your solution would be
But in the space age you can’t even place a face on the enemy
So much stress in the contest everyone I know’s life is a mess
I can’t even hear myself think over the hum of the fucking fluorescent lights
And too unwind I choose to go blind by having
the local news cast her fear into me every night

I need to settle down they say I need to settle down
A pretty little wife that’s stupid and kind
A quaint little cottage too quickly go blind
I need to settle down

But what I see is what I get

Once upon a hard time in a monstrous city in the warehouse district
On a restricted back avenue at sundown a rundown bus passes you
Haven’t you seen through your designer sunglasses how the people
Who ride inside can’t scream cause their dreams like burnt ashes
The wheel splashes a puddle on the ass of a heroin addict’s mangy mutt
That wakes up one of the fleas that lives back by his butt
A terrible nightmare to become self aware as a flea
As he screams, “I BELIEVE IN GOD BUT GOD DOES NOT BELIEVE IN ME !”
