Bring Your Own Wine
Lebanon Hanover Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

How can this be good
When someone tells you what you have to do
when someone tells you that you're good
all this confidence
I don't see how someone like you
should talk so loud and high pitched like that
Do you ever walk around and feel disgusting
Do you ever think you are just a small creature on the planet
Do you ever try to be out of your mind
to be out of your mind
I see you at the shop
and at the bus stop
people talk so loud and serious
oh they're so important
all this selfishness
I don't see how someone like you
can even like themselves
Do you ever walk around and feel disgusting
Oh it is so hard to smile on this planet
Anywhere or anytime you bring your own wine
you bring your own wine
Do you ever walk around and feel as useless
as useless as you are on this planet




do you ever think anyone here cares if you're alive
Can you not just die
