Vandals, The - Flowers Are Pretty Lyrics




Children are lovely before they get ugly
And learn to do bad stuff
Flowers are pretty before they get shitty
And rot and turn to dust
I heard that life is a wheel and you can't make it stop
If you try it'll flatten your head
It's a circle of shit we're in the middle of it
But soon we'll all be dead

Like everybody else that ever lived before
The things you make fall to the floor
And nobody knows how hard you tried
It's been that way since the start of time
There was a caveman that did some amazing things
But nobody here gives a fuck
And in a thousand years they'll feel the same
Towards all the things you've done

So don't worry what might give you cancer
Or stay up nights just wanting answers
It's just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
Things start off they're so terrific
They'll fuck up it's scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you

Love at first sight on a beautiful night
And a feeling is so divine
Gets sucked down the toilet cause something will spoil it
With the good times left behind you
Don't try to figure out who's at fault
Powerful forces abound
Like a twig on a river in the universe
Tomorrow you'll probably drown

So don't worry if it is a tumor
All this will be over sooner
It's just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
Things start off they're so terrific
They'll fuck up it's scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you, or you

And all the things that matter most
Disappear, here's a toast
To erosion and corrosion
Alzheimers and pain

Don't try to figure out who's at fault
There's powerful forces at play
And if you lose your legs and have to beg
It's really all the same

So don't worry what might give you cancer
Or stay up nights just wanting answers
It's just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
Things start off they're so terrific
They'll fuck up it's scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you

Don't worry if it is a tumor
All this will be over sooner
It's just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
Things start off they're so terrific
They'll fuck up it's scientific
Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you, or you

  7. Chloe Carlson

    Children are lovely before they get ugly, and learn to do bad stuff.
    Flowers are pretty before they get shitty, and rot and turn to dust
    I heard that life is a wheel and you can't make it stop
    If you try it'll flatten your head
    It's a circle of shit we're in the middle of it
    but soon we'll all be dead

    Like everybody else that ever lived before, the things you make fall to the floor
    and nobody knows how hard you tried, it's been that way since the start of time-
    There was a caveman that did some amazing things
    but nobody here gives a f**k
    And in a thousand years they'll feel the same
    towards all the things you've done

    CHORUS:
    So don't worry what might give you cancer-
    or stay up nights just wanting answers
    Its just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
    things start off they're so terrific
    they'll f**k up it's scientific
    Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you


    Love at first sight on a beautiful night and a feeling so divine
    gets sucked down the toilet 'cause something will spoil it
    with the good times left behind you
    Don't try to figure out who's at fault
    powerful forces abound
    like a twig on a river in the universe
    tomorrow you'll probably drown

    CHORUS:
    So don't worry if it is a tumor -
    all this will be over sooner
    Its just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
    things start off they're so terrific
    they'll f**k up it's scientific
    Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you or you

    And all the things that matter most
    disappear, here's a toast
    to erosion and corrosion, Altimzers and pain

    Don't try to figure out who's at fault
    there's powerful forces at play
    and if you lose your legs and have to beg
    it's really all the same

    CHORUS:
    So don't worry what might give you cancer-
    or stay up nights just wanting answers
    Its just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
    things start off they're so terrific
    they'll f**k up it's scientific
    Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you, or you
