You and your element of dangerous cheatin' death like a stranger but
Devils got your shirt tail clutched in the palm of his hand
Double vodka on the rocks on a plastic tray
Never fails you but it won't take the hours away

Why can't you be, why can't you be?
It's plain to see you drive yourself crazy
Why can't you be, why can't you be?
It's plain to see you're the only enemy

You got some stories you're afraid to tell, tired of living in a shotgun shell
Headin' west to find the edge of life itself
Last I heard there were angels walking in Los Angeles
With their hands in their pockets lookin' cool like me

Why can't you be, why can't you be?
It's plain to see you drive yourself crazy
Why can't you be, why can't you be?
It's plain to see you're the only enemy

Scared of lovin' cause it might feel good
You want to get it like you know you should
What the hell's wrong with living without the blues
You stand convicted, you stand accused
You're so conflicted and abused, so here's to you
Guilty of being you is the easiest of all the things you do

Why can't you be, why can't you be?
It's plain to see you drive yourself crazy
Why can't you be, why can't you be?
It's plain to see you're the only enemy
Why can't you be, why can't you be?
It's plain to see you drive yourself crazy
