Why react with uncertainty? Get wasted!

lyrics

When you say that in front of me
it just leaves me all scatterbrained
And you ask if I'm falling out
But I'm not, I will stick around

Why react with uncertainty?
Get wasted!
Stagger out, stumbling.

And it's such a simple thing
We're making out of us.
All the hours we flicked away
When we switched to imported tastes

Why react with uncertainty?
Get wasted!
Tumble 'round tumbleweed

and you plant your flag over it
but you won't stay too long
'cause it's all for the dogs

all the trite sentimentalists
crying from iron lungs
they're all going to rust

And it's such a simple thing
Zipped the coats and then started up
Polaroids of us on the crown
Took a drink and then started down

Why react with uncertainty?
Get wasted!
Stagger out stumbling
