Do Better

Postby crbrazil » Tue Oct 12, 2010 2:24 am

Life is not a spark in space
An episode of will and grace
Controversial yet mundane
Debra's messing with your brain

Even scientologists know there's more to all of this
Search the ruins for trapped doors
Wonder what you're put here for
Simple as a hint of gas climbing nostrils as you pass
Making Harvard graduates feel childish when they laugh at it
Climb the rungs to kingdom comes
Sour patch to acid tongue
Are you opposed to having fun?
You clench the world between your buns

You could do better
You could do better
You could be the greatest man in the world
Woah oh oh
(x2)

Your life is always the post of something else
Where is the present in the way that you present yourself?
And it's disgusting how little that you try
The existential equivalent of pink eye

Drink alone and watch TV, you're expecting harmonies
To tap your tune of silver spoons, anthem of impending doom
Guiding Satan's steady hand
Forcing beatles to disband
Its ego freaks and drama queens
The young at heart know what I mean

You could do better
You could do better
You could be the greatest man in the world
Woah
(x2)

You can do better, better than that
You're a fraud
Thank god you learned to keep your shirt on

You could do better
You could do better
You could be the greatest man in the world


You'd burn so brightly
You'd burn so brightly in the dark
You'd burn so brightly
you'd burn so, you'd burn so..

You could do better
You could do better
You could be the greatest man in the world
Woah oh oh
(x2)

You could do better, better than that
You're a fraud
Thank god you learned to keep your shirt on

You could do better
You could do better
You could be the greatest man in the world
Woah oh oh
(x2)

We could do better
We could do better
We could be the greatest band in the world
was i born to sink into this couch

it is optimistic like that isn't it. he should be a motivational speaker next
Self-inflicted or not, I find myself on the farthest star, foreign to everything like I woke up with a German tongue.

It's hard to try to analytically break down the songs from the self-titled. They're all so blunt.
All I can really say about this song is that it has been helping me out the past week a lot. I've had a pretty depressing past few years, but things finally started getting better around this time last year. I'm doing great now, but I still feel myself kind of falling back into my bad attitude from before sometimes, like gravity. This song's helped me stay away from that a few times this week.

How I see it, that's what Max wanted with this song. To affect people in a good way. Max succeeded.

I know right? I like how it has a pessimistic tinge to it
The excitement is building! November 1st!
