Some people are too angry, some people are too loud
Some people talk like morons, while others act too proud
Some ought to bathe more often
Or should wear less perfume
Some people like to sing out loud who couldn't hold a tune
I'd love to be more social
I'd love to spend more time among the people
If people didn't suck

Yeah people suck; they're always leaving
And often when they don't you wish they would
Rarely has it ever been a good thing that people were involved
Yeah, people suck, and we're all people
So suckage just might be the common thread
We spend our lives annoying one another
Until the day we're dead

Some people are too nosy, some people cut in line
Some people take your parking space
While others waste your time
Some people jump the turnstiles, or movie-hop for free
Some write dumb songs complaining about everythng they see
I'd be in love with everyone except that
People really suck.

Yeah, people suck, and it seems likely
That might be all there is to say on that
The more that I learn about people the more I like my cat.
Yeah people suck, and I don't like them
Although there's an exception I might make:
If you were to be with me then that
Annoyance I could take.


from Lady Liberty, released August 1, 2012
