Why Do We Need to Know - The Cinnamon Urns

for L

I've considered buying Tazers as a gift for all my friends
In the battle of the tanktops, may the best Bolshevik win
Men you look so sullen with your laundry bags in tow
Spider bites or distances: which is worse? Well, I don't know.
We don't know. Maybe God knows. We'll ask him tomorrow.

Why do we need to know?
Why do we need to know?
Why do we need to know?
Why do we need to know?
I've got a stroke of the cowboy in my soft soft heart
And you've got your face in the pillow

Kiss me in the cemetery I've heard it's good luck
If I go missing at the diner then I stole a semi-truck
One door was marked PATIENCE that's the one we hit with eggs
"I don't believe in God" I told the lightning on the lake.
What a funny thing to say. I never know what I should say. Is that okay?

Why do we need to know?
Why do we need to know?
Why do we need to know?
Why do we need to know?
I've got a stroke of the cowboy in my soft soft heart
And you've got your face in the pillow

You were right, I read the lyrics the other day and didn't listen.

But I'm glad I did now. This is a good song. Play it next time we get out the guitars!
