Education
Education - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
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 fouled
Well I'm not sure if I laid to rest
On the ceiling or the wall

Not quite conversation
It was somewhere in between
You said everything you thought
And I listened patiently
All this dog and pony
We're 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
I didn't see 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 ahead

Stumbling and shouted and said
I don’t do what you do
I don’t know, couldn't really hear highly
If you highly care
And you don't
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty

Highly education
It was somewhere in between
Oh I hit the roof
But I had aimed for the ceiling

Highly 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 damned time
There'd always be an east from west
And someone in there fighting

Stumbling, shouted and said
I don’t do what you do
I don't know, couldn't really hear highly
If you highly care

And you don't
Stubborn beauty
Stubborn beauty I've been waiting

Stubborn beauty
Stubborn beauty
I don’t know anyway

Stubborn beauty
Stubborn beauty
I don't know

Couldn't really hear highly
If you highly care
As you don't

Stubborn beauty
Stubborn beauty
Uh oh very well

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
