lyrics

Just don’t do it
If I were you I’d’ve tried to let this go by (Just don’t do it)
To step aside and let the sleeping dogs lie
(Just don’t do it) Just don’t do it
Don’t you have respect for yourself?
Just don’t do it
You had your chances to go and prove us all wrong (Just don’t do it)
But now I think it’s time to knock it off
(Just don’t do it) Just don’t do it
Don’t you have respect for yourself?
Just don’t

“Know when to quit” is more than just colloquial
The situation calling for this tip ain’t hypothetical
Something that has changed your life forever stands in front of you
And not for better or worse, only detrimental
And I guess it’s tempting to turn and get back what you lost
To attempt to recuperate, eliminate the cost
Cause in your head you’re unprepared for the tax of instability imposed on you
But I gotta tell you now you’re better off....

Just don’t do it
If I were you I’d’ve tried to let this go by (Just don’t do it)
To step aside and let the sleeping dogs lie
(Just don’t do it) Just don’t do it
Don’t you have respect for yourself?
Just don’t do it
You had your chances to go and prove us all wrong (Just don’t do it)
But now I think it’s time to knock it off
(Just don’t do it) Just don’t do it
Don’t you have respect for yourself?
Just don’t

So now you find yourself here, and yeah you’re all alone
Filling up the hole in your heart with busywork I’m told
Propelling yourself forward as you run away from ever-present hurt
Might be unhealthy but hey, at least you’re not in the dirt
But you’ll just keep keep pushing yourself and hope the pain will fade
away
You’ll just keep pushing yourself and say “I’ll be okay”
That’s the most overtly false “liar liar, pants on fire” statement that I’ve ever made
(‘Cause I don’t know when to quit!)

Just don’t do it
If I were you I’d’ve tried to let this go by (Just don’t do it)
To step aside and let the sleeping dogs lie
(Just don’t do it) Just don’t do it
Don’t you have respect for yourself?
Just don’t do it
You had your chances to go and prove us all wrong (Just don’t do it)
But now I think it’s time to knock it off
(Just don’t do it) Just don’t do it
Don’t you have respect for yourself?
Just don’t do it

Just don’t do it

I can’t do it
I should really try to let this one go by (I can’t do it)
To step aside and let the sleeping dogs lie
(I can’t do it) I can’t do it
I don’t have respect for myself
I can’t do it
I had my chances to go and prove you all wrong (I can’t do it)
But now I just can’t seem to knock it off
(I can’t do it) I can’t do it
I don’t have respect for myself
I can’t do it...

I can’t do it
I can’t do it... I can’t do it
I don’t have respect for myself I can’t do it!

I can’t do it
I can’t do it... I can’t do it
I don’t have respect for myself I can’t do it!
