Songs > Domino Theory > Lyrics

Well basically it’s not what it seems
Yeah it’s too late to argue with me
You think you’ve figured out this machine
Well you’re way off, you’re way off.
If I roll up my sleeves
You should stand back, just stand back
You’ll take it if it’s coming from me
You’re take everything from everybody.
You’re falling down like a stack of dominos
Your secret was safe but now everyone knows
Your demeanor was cleaner but now
Clean just ain’t enough
This unexpected misdirected you and you don’t even
Know that you’re stuck.

So I can be just one of two things
What’s good for you might not be for me
As superficial as it might seem
I already got my mind made up, it’s made up
Time won’t work you’ve tried
He’s outta town and he ain’t comin back
If your privations made you go blind
Well what then are you lookin at.

It could be charity or not, I don’t know
So let me offer this suggestion before you implode
Based on the pretext of your reflexes
I’ll file my complaint
You need to more than reconsider so the
Bigger picture never goes blank.

I don’t care or not if you don’t agree
It’s way too late to argue with me
Through details that you’re tryin to deceive
Yeah you’re all talk, you’re all talk
I appreciate you tryin
But you’re way off, you’re way off
I feel like I’ve been shoppin antiques
It’s the same shit and it still stinks.

You’re falling down like a stack of dominos
Your secret was safe but now everyone knows
Your demeanor was cleaner but now
Clean just ain’t enough
This unexpected misdirected you and you don’t even
Know that you’re stuck.

On a sidewalk that runs into a corner,
Better turn round quick, don’t say I didn’t warn ya
Sooner later’s bound to happen
Faster than you would think
You need to more than reconsider so
The bigger picture never goes blank.
