Rainer Maria – The Imperatives lyrics

When we can't begin
Unless it's with an argument
We're losing out on
Love for the sake of it
I was thinking we can go and live
In a monastery
Throw away the imperatives
Make our pockets empty
'cuz I'm feeling bankrupt
And I'm losing speed
And I don't wanna hold on
To anything
When I misbehaved
To get what I wanted
Was that wrong when what I wanted was
Love and affection
Let's get out
Let's get out
Let's get out
Let's get out
I was thinking we can go and live
In a monastery
