Bad Books Lyrics


"I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thank You"
feat. Kevin Devine and Manchester Orchestra

«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thanks»
Some bumper sticker wisdom while you’re walking the plank
«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thanks»
The illusion of protection in the face of a tank
You were a student
You were a soldier
You were a symbol
They made you a martyr

«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thank You»
When the nationalist demagogues eat the desperately confused
«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thank You»
We’re so far past civility it feels useless to argue
But love isn’t passive
A trick or a tactic
It’s radical action
So, go let ’em have it

When I opened my perspective from my fear of the world
For the daughter I was trying to raise
With the total sum of everything asleep in my lap
I could hear I was the one in my way
You said life is sweet
But my brain’s got teeth

«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thank You»
You said acceptance and forgiveness, I said nobody asked you
«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me Now»
I have to drop it sometime, but I hate that I have to
Oh, but it saved me
Oh, but it changed me
Shaped and remade me
Oh, what it gave me

I was burned out on obsessing at the end of the world
And the daughter I was helping to raise
With the total sum of everything awake in my lap
I could hear what you were trying to say
You said life is sweet
But my brain’s got teeth
You said life is sweet
But my brain’s got teeth

You said life is sweet if I let it be

«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thanks»
«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thanks»
«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thanks»
«I Love You, I’m Sorry, Please Help Me, Thanks»
