Want to get up, but you're feeling down
Want to get in, but you can't get around
Want to go over, but you can't get by
Mad enough to make you cry

Want to shoot straight, but you ain't got a gun
Want to win 'em all, but you ain't won one
Well, you wanna be bad, but you're good for nothing
Man, let me tell you something

Anything has got to be better
Anything has got to be better
It's like an April fool double header
Anything has got to be better

You got to do something
do something today

Want to get loose, but you're so uptight
Want to get loose, but you get in a fight
Want to act real, but you act all blue
That's about as real as a fake tattoo

Want to get tight, but you get real high
Want to take a bite, so you burn the pie
You want respect, but they still talk trash
until they're involved in your cash


from unamerican activities, released April 2, 2016
