Vandals, The - Why Are You Alive? Lyrics




So you managed to get born
But since then it's been downhill
From the greatest expectations
That the world might have had
You're lounging in your underwear
Which makes your parents sad

I don't know why some will win noble prizes
Others will be cooking fries
And melting till the sun it rises
Over the neon sign
That says "We never close"
I guess you'll never know
What's your special purpose
As to why you're on this earth?

One last chance to make up for your life
Fill out your donor card and give someone your eyes

Why are you alive
I see you eating and you're breathing
Always zero meaning
One day maybe breeding
I don't wanna kill you, but
Someone here might like it
If you won't stop being an asshole
Give your eyes to science

Some are born with special talents
Others find that it's a challenge
Reading, writing, living in this world that we have
Still others have the skills and waste them, that is twice as bad

I don't know why, you've no ambitions
And you never seem to listen
To that screaming voice or reason
That yells "You're doing it wrong"
Ask what your special purpose is
And why you're on this earth

One last chance to make up for your life
Fill out your donor card and give someone your eyes

Why are you alive
I see you're eating and you're breathing
Always zero meaning
One day maybe breeding
I don't wanna kill you, but
Someone here might like it
If you won't stop being an asshole
Give your eyes to science

(Give your eyes to science)
Give your eyes to science
Give your eyes to science
Give your eyes to science

Science
