lyrics

What’s so trivial about the day to day?
(It doesn’t get no songs)
What’s so boring about two people
Who generally get along
Didn’t I learn something
Since high school?
Something ‘bout
history over destiny?

We come together
Ordinary
Casually parked on the couch
Overflowing
with poisons
Poisons we brought home with us
So we lick our wounds
And sing our old tunes
Somewhere the world waits for us

What’s so trivial about the day to day?
(It doesn’t get no poems)
What’s so boring about two people
Who generally get along
Didn’t I learn something
Since high school?
Something ‘bout
history over destiny?

We come together
Unassuming
And I assume my grandparents taught me this
Make yourself useful... and amusing
'Cause no one owes you happiness
Fend off temptation
Use your imagination
No need
to feel sorry for yourself

What’s so trivial about the day to day?
It just doesn’t sell
What’s so boring ‘bout two people
Who know each other... so well
Didn’t I learn something, Lord
Since high school?
Something ‘bout
history over destiny?

Just an application
Of familiar kindness
From the medicine cabinet
Of our love

Mr. Michalski has been recording and performing music since his high school days in 1993. CRANKY is his first non-single release since 2013. ... more
