Good Riddance – Tell Me Why lyrics

To those in power it's always the same
Made so resistant to reason
Why just deny all the voices for change
As we stumble and fall stripping the process away

So who stands to gain from the righteous refrain
They say you get what you pay for
So we breach one more soul toss them out on the dole
Our shroud of indifference belies our benevolent tones

[Chorus:]
So tell me why
You fight for your life then you throw me away
Tell me why
You legislate opinion and say it's ok, it's never ok!

So just what makes a life, what divides where we fall
And who decides which are chosen
But while we fight for the good like it's all understood
We lose what we love and morality's frozen away

[Chorus:]

So what defines sacrament unholy vows
As you justify innocence somehow
How can I rationalize your morality
As you legislate your sad opinions on me
