Mother's Army - Voice Of Reason

Time and time again when I am cut
I still pretend that I’m not bleedin'
Over and again the words I say I didn’t hear
I should be heedin'

Mind rejoices, warning voices
Uh oh, voice of reason
And it says "Oh no, wrong again"

Time and time again when I am down
I still pretend that I'm not hurtin'
See me smile and ask
"Is that your face or just a mask?"

Saviours saving, madmen raving
Uh oh, voice of reason
It says "Oh no, wrong again"
And I say "Oh no, don't you be teasin'"
And it says "I know, let’s pretend"

Pull your socks up, put your foot down
Keep an eye out, keep your nose clean
Everybody's tryin' to tell me what to do
Keep your shirt on, let your hair down
Get a move on, wipe that grin off
Hold your horses, put the cat out
Come on, come on, come on, do it

Everytime I say that I've got nothing more to say
It's double meanin'
When I'm wrong, I'm right where I belong
It's just a plight that's unredeeming, oh yeah

Mind rejoices, warning voices
Uh oh, voice of reason
It says "Oh no, wrong again"
And I say "Oh no, don't you be teasin'"
And it says "I know, let’s pretend"

Pay attention, pay your taxes
Wear a rubber, suck yerself off
Everybody’s tryin' to tell me what to do
Alimony, keep your hands off
Get a move on, take the trash out
Keep your voice down, shut the fuck up
Come on, come on, come on, just do it

Uh oh, voice of reason
It says "Oh no, wrong again"
And I say "Oh no, don't you be teasin'"
And it says "I know, let’s pretend"
And I say "Oh no, voice of reason"
And it says "Oh no, wrong again"
Wrong again
