Why So Serious Lyrics

by Extra Kool

[Verse 1:]
Let me paint the picture, just sitting at the
Hospice, on the foot of the bed, feeling helpless
Like a hostage, today is my birthday, I came to
See my mom, show her my new pair of shoes and tell
Her about my new song, they wear a clean pair of
Jordan's, the eighty seven's to be exact, yo with all
White leather, and twenty three on the back, the
Song was "Part Two", it's all about the daily
Struggles and how they define who I am, and how
They left me feeling humble, but she can hardly
Concentrate, the Morphine makes her sleep, with
Deloted in her blood, makes her dreams start to peak,
She say's there's birds in her room, and she see's
Sidna in the halls, she hears voices in her head, and
They make her skin start to crawl, so I just sit and
Hold her hand, like her little boy should, tell her
Stories from her past and try and make her feel good,
I get sad, I can't help it, it's hard to watch you're
Mom die, I wish the clouds would open up and angels
Would take her to the sky...

[Verse 2:]
It was the very next day, we got the call from the
Hospice, we're told to get there quickly, because
You're mother looks exhausted, we had the whole troop
There from the cousins to the aunts, from my father to
My sister, I just can't hold back, I get a little out
Of line once they take her from her breath, now that
The oxygen's gone and there's really nothing left,
You ever heard death speak? it's almost more like a dream,
With a thousand tiny hands turning breaths into screams,
I don't want to be here, I just want to close my eyes and
Touch the hands of an angel, and watch the world cry,
But instead I see my dad hold my mother in his arms, with
His head in his hands, trying to heal a broken heart, I
Feel the pain in my chest, and it's not just hunger pains,
I'm full of hate and anxiety, like I swallowed razor
Blades, now it's time to go to sleep, I see the family
Dozing off, in the comfort of the couches, I get up and
Walk it off, I feel helpless, everyone's asleep around
Me, I feel my head start to fall and now my world is
Drowning, I feel a burden in my heart where my love use
To be, I remember saying to my mom, won't you please go
To sleep, I just can't take the stress of the family any
More, I wanna lead them all a stray with the words of
These songs, but as I watch them all dream, I see the
Peace fall and crumble, as I stand there quite, erasing
Dreams from there slumber... [x3]

[Verse 3:]
Is everybody comfy? ah yeah, good you should be, in the
Land of false hopes you can see right through me, to the
Waiting room angels catching up on sleep, it goes rock a
Bye baby, with my stomach full of grief, she took her very
Last breath with me sitting in the same room, just me and
My father, watched my mother shed her costume, I just want
To go to sleep and save lives like a light house, but death
Never speaks, watch guilt dry my eyes out, I hold grudge in
My heart so I can fucking bleed words, I don't know how I
Feel, but I know it's upserd, I just want to concentrate
Live life and be a better man, feel lost by myself and hear
Voices like the Son of Sam, so am I a bad person just because
I didn't cry? when she ran out of breath, you best believe
That I tried, so alive she had to die, once the cancer
Punched the clock, I'm so sorry I wasn't better, will this
Grief ever stop?

[Verse 4:]
A yo I'm fresh out of hugs, please mom, please forgive me,
I'm a broken set of teeth, you're little boys feeling filthy,
I guess I never felt the same, since we had that last fight,
I guess it's a matter of opinion, because I know I wasn't
Right, so now I'm buried in the words to another tribute
Track, Extra Kool the creature, creature, let me show you what
I lack, I hope you see Papa Joe, and I know that you'll
Forgive me, you're my mother, you're my life, I know you see
Through me... [x3]

[Verse 5:]
If I could do it all over, I would fall straight into the sun,
And try and fix the way I think with every breath in my lungs,
I would learn to concentrate and deal better with the man
I am, love life like a women and build faith like I know I can,
I'd learn to stay a sleep, and chase comfort from the start,
And place diamonds in my tears so Lindsay couldn't break
My heart, I'd trade lust for salvation and bow my head to my
Lover, I'd be a truly better man and thank the Lord for my
Mother, I got you're picture on my mantle, as a baby in you're
Arms, not a care in the world, as I'm sleeping through the
Storm... [x2]

[Verse 6:]
I just want to sleep-no pain just close my eyes
I just want to sleep-lay still, feel hypnotized
I just want to sleep-stay calm, blow away the fear
I just want to sleep-so my guilt will just disappear [x2]
I just want to sleep [x5]

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

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
