Better Oblivion Community Center - Exception To The Rule Lyrics




You need an occupation
To warrant a vacation
Without anticipation
Nothing's satisfactory
I came out here to check out
Get away from my house
Now I don't leave this couch
Or turn off the TV

There's always an exemption
There's always an exception to the rule
Always an exemption
There's always an exception to the rule
Why don't you want it?
Why don't you want it anymore?
Why don't you want it?
Why don't you want it anymore?

I wanted to avoid it
Live out in the forest
Play out of that orbit
Go drifting out to sea
But fate just wouldn't have it
It treats us like a magnet
Mends my broken habits
And makes a fool of me

There's always an exemption
There's always an exception to the rule
Always an exemption
There's always an exception to the rule
Why don't you want it?
Why don't you want it anymore?
Why don't you want it?
Why don't you want it anymore?

Nice sentiment
Not this again
Quit tapping on my window
Won't let you in
I'm not listening
'Cause I know where that talk goes

And I don't want it
And I don't want it anymore
And I don't want it
And I don't want it anymore

    You need an occupation
    To warrant a vacation
    Without anticipation
    Nothing’s satisfactory

    I came out here to check out
    Get away from my house
    Now I don’t leave this couch
    Or turn off the TV

    There’s always an exemption
    There’s always an exception to the rule
    Always an exemption
    Always an exception to the rule

    Why don’t you want it?
    Why don’t you want it anymore?
    Why don’t you want it?
    Why don’t you want it anymore?

    I wanted to avoid it
    Live out in the forest
    Stay out of that orbit
    We’re drifting out to sea

    But fate just wouldn’t have it
    It treats us like a magnet
    Mends my broken habit
    And makes a fool of me

    There’s always an exemption
    There’s always an exception to the rule
    Always an exemption
    There’s always an exception to the rule

    Why don’t you want it?
    Why don’t you want it anymore?
    Why don’t you want it?
    Why don’t you want it anymore?

    Nice sentiment
    Not this again
    Quit tapping on my window
    Won’t let you in
    I’m not listening
    ’Cause I know where that talk goes

    And I don’t want it
    And I don’t want it anymore
    And I don’t want it
    And I don’t want it anymore
