He was drunk, I was blind Though we tried to be kind I was sunk, always late

We were quick to rotate Let′s be blunt, I was a bluff And the surreal life was tough I was a runt, we told lies But to our great surprise All the shit that we did Brought us some money, I guess And those snotty young kids Were a standing success Helped us conquer and rise And we learned in this hell We don't wanna get wise (I don′t wanna get wise) (I don't wanna get wise Life teaches us well We still pull, we get smug And we all like a drug Over full, always sated Puffed up, elated Let's admit our mistakes Are what triggered our breaks We were shits, oh, no disguise And it is no surprise That the crap that we did Brought us money, God bless And those snotty young kids Were a standing success Helped us conquer and rise And we learned in this hell We didn′t wanna get wise (I don′t wanna get wise) (I don't wanna get wise) Life teaches us well Experiment, you universe We′ll ask why you choose to curse Why set a fire you plan to douse? Why set a rat to catch a mouse? He was drunk (he was drunk) I was blind (he was blind) Though we tried to be kind I was sunk (he was sunk) He was late (always late) We were quick to rotate We tried hard to stay young But the high notes were sung We've been scarred, we′ve been prized But you could see in our eyes (I don't wanna get wise) (I don′t wanna get wise) We got wise (I don't wanna get wise) (I don't wanna get wise) We got wise (I don′t wanna get wise) (I don′t wanna get wise) We got wise (I don't wanna get wise) (I don′t wanna get wise) We got wise
