You're A Contradiction

Updated: Dec 4, 2022

You’re a contradiction
you don’t mean what you say
You think you’re high class
but you’re just a wild stray
You make up the rules
with thoughtless precision
Then do what you want
free from permission

You eat when you’re full
play when you’re tired
Take the car for a spin
when totally wired

You sleep all day long
prowl round late at night
Chop off your hair
then crave kryptonite

You’re a contradiction
a poet with no soul
You’re lost in a cloud
all plans and no goals

Yeah, you’re a contradiction
spinning words in the sky
Full of restrictions
livin’ life in a lie
And old school predictions
say contradictions don’t die
You step on a ladder
but can’t see your feet
You think you’re up high
but you’re down on the street
You stop by a tavern
for a burger and beer
Get discovered next day
out cold on the pier

You didn’t know the time
it was one hour ahead
So when you awoke
you thought you were dead

You’re a contradiction
a poet with no soul
You’re lost in a cloud
all plans and no goals
Yeah, old school predictions
say contradictions don’t die
Those sold out restrictions
keep you livin’ a lie
Yeah, old school predictions
say contradictions don’t die
And old school contradictions
keep askin’ you why
You’re a contradiction
a poet with no soul
You’re lost in a cloud
all plans and no goals
