A Perfect Circle – Passive

Dead as dead can be
My doctor tells me
But I just can’t believe him
Ever the optimistic one
I’m sure of your ability
To become my perfect enemy

Wake up and face me
Don’t play dead ’cause maybe
Someday I will walk away and say
You disappoint me
Maybe you’re better off this way

Leaning over you here
Cold and catatonic
I catch a brief reflection
Of what you could and might have been
It’s your RIGHT and your ability
To become my perfect enemy

Wake up
(Why can’t you?)
And face me
(Come on now)
Don’t play dead
(Don’t play dead)
‘Cause maybe
(Because maybe)
Someday
(Someday)
I will walk away and say
You disappoint me
Maybe you’re better off this way

Maybe you’re better off this way (×4)
You’re better off this (×2)
Maybe you’re better off…

Wake up
(Why can’t you?)
And face me
(Come on now)
Don’t play dead
(Don’t play dead)
‘Cause maybe
(Because maybe)
Someday
(Someday)
I will walk away and say
You fucking disappoint me
Maybe you’re better off this way!

Go ahead and play dead
(GO!)
I know that you can hear this
(GO!)
Go ahead and play dead
(GO!)

Why can’t you turn and face me?
(WAKE UP!)
Why can’t you turn against me?
(WAKE UP!)
Why can’t you turn against me?
(WAKE UP!)
Why can’t you turn against me?
(GO!)
You fucking disappoint me

Passive-aggressive bullshit…

A Perfect Circle-People are people

We’re different colors
And different creeds
And different people
Have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I’ve never even met you
So what could I have done

People are people
So why should it be
You and I shouldn’t get along
People are people
So why should it be
You should hate me
People are people
So why should it be
You and I shouldn’t get along
People are people
So why should it be
You should hate me

Punching and kicking
And you’re shouting at me
I’m relying on your common decency
So far it hasn’t surfaced
But I’m sure it exists
It just takes a while
To travel from your head to your fist

I can’t understand what makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand

People are people
So why should it be
You and I shouldn’t get along
People are people
So why should it be
You should hate me
People are people
So why should it be
You and I shouldn’t get along
People are people
So why should it be
You should hate me

I can’t understand what makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
I can’t understand what makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
I can’t understand what makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
