Ain't No Reason
Brett Dennen Lyrics


There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it every day

Preachers on the podiums speaking of saints
Prophets on the sidewalk begging for change
Old ladies laughing from the fire escape
Cursing my name

I got a basket full of lemons and they all taste the same
A window and a pigeon with a broken wing
You could spend your whole life working for something
Just to have it taken away

People walk around pushing back their debts
Wearing paychecks like necklaces and bracelets
Talking about nothing, not thinking 'bout death
Every little heartbeat, every little breath

People walk a tight rope on a razor's edge
Carrying their hurt and hatred and weapons
It could be a bomb, or a bullet or a pen
Or thought, or a word or a sentence

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they always been and they intend to stay
I don't know why I say the things I say
But I say them anyway

But love will come, set me free
Love will come, set me free, I do believe
Love will come, set me free, I know it will
Love will come, set me free, yes

Prison walls still standing tall
Some things never change at all
Keep on building prisons, gonna fill them all
Keep on building bombs, gonna drop them all

Working your fingers bare to the bone
Breaking your back, make you sell your soul
Like a lung, it's filled with cold
Suffocating slow

The wind blows wild and I may move
The politicians lie and I am not fooled
You don't need no razor or a three piece suit
To argue the truth

They air on my skin in the world under my toes
Slavery stitched to the fabric of my clothes
Chaos and commotion wherever I go
Love I try to follow

Love will come, set me free
Love will come, set me free, I do believe
Love will come, set me free, I know it will
Love will come, set me free, yes

There ain't no reason things are this way
It's how they've always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it every day

Part of the song is gone where did it go? there is a missing verse it goes "working your fingers bare to the bone break ya back make ya sell your soul like a lung that is filled with coal suffocating slow" thumbs this up so people can see it.

jordan halifax

Wow fuck the system

Kayla Antalek

Yes I remember that part.

Rebecca Webb

That line missing is what caused me to look up the song

Sjoerd Reitsma

"Because when you believe everything happens for a reason. It hurts that much more when it doesn't..." Scrubs, best show ever

Brother Er

Agreed i remember when my dad used to watch this show when I was younger and it feels so nostalgic re-watching it

elvisburns

People arguing with a man's opinion, like their opinion, or even an opinion shared by many people equals undisputed truth. No.

This man says scrubs is the best show ever, its definitely one of my favourite ever and holds a place in my heart, not necessarily my all time favourite, BUT I know many people who also say its their all time top show, and stand by it religiously.

You do your thing @sjoerd reitsma

R Messina

You are absolutely right best show ever. Nothing can change my mind!!

Logan G. Mohler

I was just watching scrubs, forgot this was on there

Karan Gera

The best show ever indeed!
