Lyrics

Contradictory

Written By: Lucas Cates

Wait just a second, cause it sounded like you said to me, the glass is only half full, if it’s half -empty. Those who see it full, may be right, but may be thirsty. And those who see it both, flat out, are contradictory.
Don’t tell a white lie with an un-expectancy. Fact may be false now, due to your duality. You should try and shape up, ship out, be what you want to be, but always be yourself. All else is contradictory. All else is contradictory.

But there’s a name for you. There’s a place for me.
Take a look inside your head. There’s no brain there’s no heart in your chest.
You’re contradictory.

Don’t you say you’re sorry. Don’t you walk away.
Take a look inside yourself. Your heart in mind, but your head in check.
In reality, you’re contradictory.

Wait just a second, cause it sounded like you said to me, the egg then the chicken is the order that a vegan sees. White meat, dark meat, it all tastes the same to me. Better fill my glass, cause my glass is half-empty. My glass is half-empty.

Wait just a second, cause it sounded like you said to me, the glass is only half full, if it’s half -empty. Those who see it full, may be right, but may be thirsty. And those who see it both, flat out, are contradictory. Flat out you’re contradictory. Hey babe, you’re contradictory. Straight up, you’re contradictory. Straight up, you’re contradictory.
