Why Must You Always Dress In Black (Harper Ben)

You may be a cheap date But my therapy's expensive as hell Then you pay a psychic healer who lets you know Things aren't really working out so well Tomorrow's shining off our face Yesterday's shadow is at our back, at our back So why must you always dress in black? People, they don't take advice, they only give it And the only way you're ever gonna learn is to live it So what you spent your younger years Parlaying on the wrong side of the track Why must you always dress in black? If you have to lie, do it as quickly And as thoroughly as you can This morning I woke up slow feeling like the shell of a man Don't blame me for us, you cried! Oh, cut me some slack And tell me why must you always dress in black? She wore high heels, the ones that can pierce your heart Just 'cause you go down in history Doesn't mean you're really all that smart Like Robert E. Lee, you're at your best when under attack Why must you always dress in black? You call in sick on Monday Tuesday you show up late Wednesday you left early Thursday you fight with a boss you hate Friday you up and quit Saturday you want your old job back Sunday morning you wake up all dressed in black Why must you always dress in black?
