Call it education
It was somewhere in between
You gave me some sound advice
But I wasn't listening

After we had capsized
I could tell you how you'd fall
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
It didn't seem like we'd lived enough
To even get to die

All these dense distractions
So beautifully complex
Well, I loved life's surprises so much
I don't want to know what's ahead

Stubborn shouted and said
"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
Ah very well

Hardly education
It was somewhere in between
Oh, I hit the roof but I had
Aimed for the ceiling

Hardly education
All them books I didn't read
They just sat there on my shelf
Looking much smarter than me

Good ol' Nostradamus
He knew the whole damn time
There'd always be an east from west
Someone in them fighting

Stubborn shouted, 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. Ah very well.
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty
I don't know anyway
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?
And sure don't
Stubborn beauty, stubborn beauty
Ah 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
