I'd arrest you if I had handcuffs,
I'd arrest you if I had the time,
I'd throw you down in the back seat,
As if you'd commited a terrible crime.

I'd break into a towns worth of houses,
And rob whole familys blind,
I'd do it to you like you do it to me,
If you knew you would get away fine.

I'd drown all these crying babies,
If I knew that their mothers wouldn't cry,
I'd hold them down and I'd squeeze real soft,
To let a piece of myself die.

It's hard to be the better man,
When you forget you're trying,
It's hard to be the better man.

I'd arrest if I had handcuffs,
I'd arrest if I had time,
I'd wait for you outside the courtroom
Taunting when all your appeals were declined.

I'd drive my car off of a bridge,
If I knew that you weren't inside,
With a pedal to the floor I couldn't ask for more,
A fantastic way to kill some time.

And you could lay on your back and be beaten,
You could put up your fists and fight,
You could try and be way up,
Way up way up way up,
Way up way up way up,
Way up,

It's hard be the better man,
When you forget you're trying,
It's hard to be the better man,
When you're still lying,
It's hard to be the better man,
When you forget you're trying,
It's hard to be the better man,
When you're still lying...
You're still lying
