one thing leads to another lyrics – powerman 5000

just what are you trying to say?
you got a blank face which irritates
communicate, pull out your party piece
you see dimensions in two
state your case with black or white

but when one little cross leads to shots
grit your teeth
you run for cover so discreet

why don’t they do what they say?
say what you mean, one thing leads to another
you told me something wrong, i know i listen too long
but then one thing leads to another

the impression that you sell
p*sses in and out like a scent
but the long face that you see
comes from living close to your fears

if this is up then i’m up but you’re running out of sight
you’ve seen your name on the walls
and when one little b*mp leads to shock, miss a beat
you run for cover and there’s heat

why don’t they do what they say?
say what they mean, one thing leads to another
you told me something wrong, i know i listen too long
but then one thing leads to another
one thing leads to another

then it’s easy to believe
somebody’s been lying to me
but when the wrong word goes in the right ear
i know you’ve been lying to me

it’s getting rough off the cuff
i’ve got to say enough’s enough
bigger, the harder he falls
but when the wrong antidote is like a bone in the throat
you run for cover in the heat

why don’t they do what they say?
say what they mean, one thing leads to another
you told me something wrong, i know i listen too long
but then one thing leads to another
one thing leads to another
