Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Why should I care?

A man broke into my neighborhood
He threatened the family with a loaded gun
He tied them all up and beat 'em real good
He took everything and he got away clean
And I can't believe that anyone would
Wanna do such a terrible thing
But why should I care?

Did you hear about Fred, he's unemployed
They threw him away like a useless toy
He went down the drain after 20 long years
No warning, no pension and nobody's tears
And I can't believe that anyone would
Wanna do such a terrible thing
But why should I care? Why should I care?

Every time I look around this place
I see them scream but I hear no sound
And the terrible things happen down the road
To somebody else that I don't even know

Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Why should I care?
Why should I care?
Why should I care?

Every time I look around this place
I see them scream but I hear no sound
And the terrible things happen down the road
To somebody else that I don't even know

Have you heard about the Joneses, my, my, my
It happened so quick and no one knows why
Their teenage son, he seemed okay
But his suicide ruined everyone's day
And I can't believe that anyone would
Wanna do such a terrible thing
But why should I care?

Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Why should I care?
Nothing bad ever happens to me
Why should I care?
(Nothing bad ever happens to me)
Why should I care?
(Nothing bad ever happens to me)
Why should I care?
