Everything That's Good Is Bad


(Hazen)


Read my lips, I can't believe this
I'm going insane, going down the drain, no I don't believe this
Everything I do has been made illegal
Can't even smoke in jail, you won't get an appeal
Better wait 'til Heaven's Gate before you have to kneel


We're surrounded by constant karma's - unheeded warnings of what will harm us
But, no matter if they alarm us- I'm gonna do them all anyway
Because everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
From my first breath's warning to the final one I'll have
Everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad


I never thought that mayonnaise would do me in
I never knew that brewing stew as lecithin
Why, oh why do they put us in fear of enjoying anything we see, eat or listen
We want life 'til our lungs cave in !
It's more red-dye propaganda - laced with some rodent hair
It's monday's euthanasia for the weekend's red-eye glare
It's always too little to give more than what's enough
It's a bureaucratic plague that has made this time so tough


Because everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
From the day's first dawning 'til when the moon is sad
Everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
We're surrounded by constant karma's - unheeded warnings of what will harm us
But, no matter if they alarm us, I'm gonna do them all anyway
Because everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
From my first breath's warning to the final one I'll have
Everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad


They want me scared of who I'm seeing, scared of the words I'm speaking
I'm supposed to be paranoid of where I go, what I'm drinking
Everything we used to eat is now unhealthy, and we're sinking
And I can't even smoke like I want, without them peeking


Who was it who invented all the good things?
Where is he now that I've got the nerve to kill him?
I'm tired of being led down antiseptic hallways
Tired of desire now and the forgotten highways


Is there anything left that would feel like something
Stimulate my gauge and keep this young heart pumping
There's gotta be a place even if it's only nowhere
Got to be a town where I won't have to put it down


Because everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
From the days first dawning till when the moon is sad
Everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
We're surrounded by constant karma's - unheeded warnings of what will harm us
But, no matter if they alarm us, I'm gonna do them all anyway
Because everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
From my first breath's warning to the final one I'll have
Everything that's good is bad, everything that's good is bad
