I Don't Wanna Get Wise Lyrics

He was drunk, I was blind
Though we tried to be kind
I was sunk, always late
We were quick to rotate

Let's be blunt, I was a bluff
And the surreal life was tough
I was a runt, we told lies
But to our great surprise

All the shit that we did
Brought us some money, I guess
And those snotty young kids
Were a standing success

Helped us conquer and rise
And we learned in this hell

We don't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
Life teaches us well

We still pull, we get smug
And we all like a drug
Over full, always sated
Puffed up, elated

Let's admit our mistakes
Are what triggered our breaks
We were shits, oh, no disguise
And it is no surprise

That the crap that we did
Brought us money, God bless
And those snotty young kids
Were a standing success Helped us conquer and rise
And we learned in this hell

We didn't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
Life teaches us well

Experiment, you universe
We'll ask why you choose to curse
Why set a fire you plan to douse?
Why set a rat to catch a mouse?

He was drunk (he was drunk), I was blind (he was blind)
Though we tried to be kind
I was sunk (he was sunk), he was late (always late)
We were quick to rotate

We tried hard to stay young
But the high notes were sung
We've been scarred, we've been prized
But you could see in our eyes

I don't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
We got wise

I don't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
We got wise
I don't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
We got wise
I don't wanna get wise
I don't wanna get wise
We got wise
