HOW COME AND WHY Lyrics

by Rehab

How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
I travel on rainy roads
and hydroplane through life
knife marks on my back
behind my eye's the strife
feel like the last domino in the row
when will I fall?
like "Knife", belly up to the bar
I don't care at all
try to stay between the ditches after last call
blurry sight
I'm not right
it's me I fight
might win, might not
might live, might rot
I float above kites 'cause it feels like the right spot
my brain is shot
all my circuits are shorted
all the blotter I dropped
the white girl that I snorted
when I could or couldn't afford it
my man said there was "no way out"
put a piece in his mouth
put a hole in his head to let his soul climb out
I can't go that route
I was born a fighter
symbolism is a bitch, ain't it?
it get's deeper
I had a dream about the Grim Reaper
he had a beeper
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
Surrounded by stripper and drunks
drug-addicts, geniuses and punks
and I'm the mental patient
been asleep for a month
see no good at all
find me in the house bumpin' classical music
starin' at the wall
winter, spring, summer or fall
all you have to do is call
but I ain't pickin' up the phone
no one else can say "goodbye" when I'm alone
he's a full-blown manic depressant with pain to kill
the only peace I've ever known was in a pill
so I say ill
suck it up
no one can feel me
if you tell me that you love me
I think that you want to kill me
so I change my name to "Mr. Apathy"
any why
'cause I don't want to deal with anything
I run from demons with medical names
sleep in the trenches of the nang?
and gang-bangin' my brain
while I'm changin' lanes
looks like it's to late
I don't deal with the depth I feel
I isolate
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
What am I to do in a world full of sin
inside bubblin', turmoil within
medicate self
the head starts to spin
was I born to lose
it seems I'll never win
I look around
I've lost all of my friends
looked down upon by all of my kin
can't smile
all I can give is half a grin
guess I'll drink and just play pretend
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
How come
everything good goes to bits
how come
everybody wantin' me to quit
any why
is it that only the good die
any why
do I gotta always get high
I got to always get high to survive

Paul Hardcastle
In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony

She told me in the morning she don't feel the same about us in her bones
It seems to me that when I die these words will be written on my stone
