lyrics

It's not unreasonable.
We've been on about it now. 
And this goin round in circles is beginning to wear my mind down 
Its not in season no more. We've grown up and gotten out. 
Going back and forth is only gonna move the dirt around. 

All this is, is your new thing done in an old way. 
So say nothing at all if you've got nothing nice to say. 
Oh what you'd do if you had your way. 
But you're finding it harder to do than it is to say.
So you can't shut your mouth.

The wheels are greasable.
So why's it slowing down?
Then there's a backlash and something or other's always on the mend now.
There's a savior coming down.
Whatcha doing Saturday night?
We'll get a good seat for the end of the world.
They tell me if you believe, it's gonna be all right.

It's their new thing done in an old way. 
So say nothing at all if you've got nothing nice to say. 
Oh what you'd do if you had your way. 
But you're finding it harder to do than it is to say.
So you can't shut your mouth.

Some of their movements aren't so graceful.
But man, they sure can say mouthful.
Over said and under done. I guess that's how the war's won.

All this is, is your new thing done in an old way. 
So say nothing at all if you've got nothing nice to say. 
Oh what you'd do if you had your way. 
But you're finding it harder to do than it is to say.
So you can't shut your mouth.
