lyrics

This is why I keep on hanging around
'Cause I can't stop trying to find my soul in the sound
Perfectly imperfected
Short and sweet and profound
This is why I keep on hanging around
This is where I wear my heart on my sleeve
I could make it up but I'd rather make you believe
The awful truth can hurt you
But it's better than being deceived
This is why I keep on singing
Get back up and keep on swinging
This is why I keep on hanging around
Take the melody, make the harmony louder
Commit a felony, make your family prouder
Drop me from your highest concept
To your lowest brow
And tell me truly how you like me now
Write a symphony
Live in infamy
Love your enemy
Have it in for me
Drink the anarchy
Eat society
Whack your piety
Take a breath and say yeah!
This is why I keep on hanging around
'Cause I can't stop trying to find my soul in the sound
Perfectly imperfected
Short and sweet and profound
This is why I keep on singing
Stick with bees that keep on stinging
This is why I keep on hanging around
