Have to toe the line, I've got to make the most
Spent all the years going from pillar to post
Now, I'm standing on the outside and I'm waitin' in the rain
Tell me, why must I always explain?

Bared my soul to the crowd, eh but oh, what the cost?
Most of them laughed out loud like nothing's been lost
There were hypocrites and parasites and people that drain
Tell me, why must I always explain?

Why, why must I always explain?
Over and over, over again
It's just a job you know and it's not sweet Lorraine
Tell me, why must I always explain? Alright

Well, I get up in the morning and I get my brief
I go out and stare at the world in complete disbelief
It's not righteous indignation that makes me complain
It's the fact that I always have to explain

I can't be everywhere at once, there's always somebody to see
And I never turned out to be the person that you wanted me to be
And I tell you who I am, time and time and time again
Tell me, why must I always explain?

Well, it's out on the highway and it's on with the show
Always telling people things, they're too lazy to know
It can make you crazy, yeah, it can drive you insane
Tell me, why must I always explain?
