That Is Why

This song is by Say Anything and appears on the album In Defense Of The Genre (2007).

Today I sat and smoked myself to cancer
Thinking about the dancer at the bar
Well how was I to know
That a crush could just implode
‘Til it became a grudge eclipsing every star

And yes I know my addictions run the gamut
The drugs, the smokes, the booze, the 24
But you can't make the turkey colder
Or skew me less bipolar
Let me list those things about you I abhor

Horrible, you're
So easy, talk sleazy
You led me off the plank and left me queasy
And that is why
You can't rock my world

You swore that you were taken when I met you
But yes, you did undress me from afar
A gentile concubine
You skip amongst the mines
Just a product of the endless empty grind

You lack the curves that prove a proper lady
A slender slave, with sluttish sleepy eyes
Though once I was emoting
and Bono-lyric quoting
I have found another, be my guest and die

With starry eyes, she's
Warm-glancing, entrancing
And now I'm through with all your sick sad ranting
And that is why
You can't rock my world

I've lost you...
Now I glide through the silky sky
It's so blue...
You're just old news and that is why
So screwed...
Cadaver gone blue this has died
Your machine has grown gangrene
And now I see right through your lies

Ripe wonder, I plunder
The village now that I know I become her
And that is why
you can't rock my...
That is why
That is why
You'll never ever, in a goddamn millennium be my girl

I watch frozen stars on the way home
I watch frozen stars on the way back home
I watch frozen stars on the way home
I watch frozen stars burn out on the way back home
