lyrics

Easy come is an easy break as far as I'm concerned
Things may take the time they take, but we just want what we think we've earned
We hate those awkward answers,
Makes our blood boil, and heads spin
We're waiting for someone to
Turn the lights on

Yeah, that's a lie that you live on
That taste of victory proves you wrong

Making friends with my D.T. shakes, and my feelings unresolved
Trying not to get in my way, drunk on questions I can't solve
I hate those heavy answers, separate virtue from sin
I'm waiting for someone to
Turn the lights on

Yeah, that's a lie that you live on
That taste of victory proves you wrong, you're just wrong
You know much more than you let on
So kill your darlings and move on

There's nothing left for me to figure out,
Because I'm so lost in my head

Why would I choose lost over wide awake
When the answer's right in my hands

I hate the actual answers, that put me in my place
I'm not waiting for someone to
Turn the lights on

Yeah, that's a lie that I deserve
This doesn't mean a thing, they're just words, they're just words
Yeah that's a like that you live one
That taste of victory proves you're wrong

about

Better Living Through Chemistry Ottawa, Ontario

Better Living Through Chemistry are a straight up rock band, with clever lyrics and catchy hooks.

They have a bad case of broken strings, cracked cymbals, and buzzing mics. Schooled in the alternative music scene of the 80s and 90s, this band wears their influences (The Replacements, Soul Asylum, Paul Westerberg, among others... ) on their collective sleeves...like badges of honour.
