Lyrics

“Opinions”

Left to right, right to left
After so many words there's nothing left
To say, to do, to feel

CHORUS
Too many opinions cluttering the storage space in my brain
I try to sane but it's tough when words keep coming
Emotionally damaging, mentally numbing
The words keep quacking like ducks
Saying this one is the better one and the other one sucks
And I try to keep my head afloat but the words are like lead
And they're weighing on my head and my head is the boat
And they're sinking me, quickly

“Did you hear what Johnny said?
I think that boy deserves a hole in his head”
“And Lucy said, 'you're ugly' and Valerie said, 'you're cute'
“And Tom thinks, 'you should cut you're hair', … and doesn't Andy wear nice boots?”

CHORUS
Too many opinions cluttering the storage space in my brain
I try to sane but it's tough when words keep coming
Emotionally damaging, mentally numbing
The words keep quacking like ducks
Saying this one is the better one and the other one sucks
And I try to keep my head afloat but the words are like lead
And they're weighing on my head and my head is the boat
And they're sinking me, quickly

“Man I love that movie, but the sequel really blew
And your cousin kinda reminds me of this girl that I once knew
But she smoked too much pot, and her friends drank too much beer
And don't you think Greg's been to one too many frat' parties this year?”

CHORUS
Too many opinions cluttering the storage space in my brain
I try to sane but it's tough when words keep coming
Emotionally damaging, mentally numbing
The words keep quacking like ducks
Saying this one is the better one and the other one sucks
And I try to keep my head afloat but the words are like lead
And they're weighing on my head and my head is the boat
And they're sinking me, quickly
I said they're sinking me quickly
