LYRICS BORN - Stop Complaining lyrics

rate me

Stop complaining

Stop complaining

Now many songs do you figure that I've written

Since I originally started making records in this business

Back beginning in college, and it's been a menace since then

But the principal challenge, it ain't really that different

It's about me not repeating myself at all

Or at least repeating myself the least amount, I suppose

The reason being is that we need some songs

That lead us off the beaten path between my rhymes

But listen though, it's difficult now a-days

To really go against the grain, get you some accolades

Especially with these frigid, finicky, fickle-ass motherfuckers

Think they finally figured you out, the fake-ass fuckers

Stop complaining (I know, it's just that certain shit pisses me off)

Stop complaining (What am I gonna do? I mean)

Man, fuck that shit, I pay my taxes when I'm asked to

I'm not enthusiastic about it, but shit I make it happen

Yeah, it's last minute, but goddammit they cash it

"This is fiscal harassment! They keep touching my assets!"

Now I imagine I might be feeling different about it

If it was given outright, witnessing it helping somebody

But it just so happens in life, the school district's too crowded

There ain't no teachers in sight, that's why the kids are so rowdy

I just imagine some asshole with glasses on up at the capital

One of a thousand pawns packed in an office, cramped up like animals

Pictures of his sister, his mixture Lhasa Apso poodle

His 2.6 kids and the missus thumb-tacked to his cubicle

So damned detached from the average man's planet he can't fathom

That he can ever be anything other than stats, fat and taxable

He's getting his usual, ritual 2 o'clock cup of noodles on

Fucking you with your W-2, with his John Denver music on

", I love this one. Hey Lil? Can you get me the file on.?"

"Blah blah blah blah blah?"

"Yeah..he's making too much money"

Stop complaining (I know,'s just)

Stop complaining (I'm trying, I'm really trying)

Stop complaining (Yeah I know, lets give it. )

Stop complaining (I wonder what do they say about me?)

Is he a role model we can all follow full throttle

So we don't bother having to create our own model

That we go by? A fall guy I can hold accountable?

Cuz I don't want to hold the bottle for my own child

Is it really my place to raise little Billy

when Hilly and William should be building with him in the living room

Instead of bailing on him, and alienating him, and basically failing him

Sending him sailing on a mission to oblivion?

Then, inevitably on his day in court and Billy ain't to blame

The bailiff asks him to raise his arm and say his name in court

Of course his parents ain't in court, they play it off

Saying it ain't his fault

Blame it on Asian Born, or his favorite artist

Beg your pardon?

Now, I do admit that in the music business

people do and say some really stupid shit

Kids are zooming in and using what we do and say

I can see how you can say "do not abuse your influence"

But to all the Hillaries and the Williams of the new millennium

If you really aren't feeling like living with the children will be a fulfilling experience

Or something you envision yourself willingly

and unconditionally committed to from the beginning

Maybe you shouldn't be bumping bellies from the giddyup anyway, dummy

Stop complaining (Well, for now)

Stop complaining (Man, YOU stop complaining)

Stop complaining

Stop complaining (Whatever)
