Ain't Good Enough

from All in This Together by Conor Ryan Hennessy

lyrics

What's the last time someone said something neat, that ya think you'd like to read
They'll spout and bubble theories, sparking queries, with eloquence to you and me
Oh, but when upon reflection, their questions like with a rain a metal rusts
Yeah, those words of theirs that sounded nice, their advice can't help the rest of us

I'm kinda done
At least for now
With money waving people all around
I wish you luck
Yes-siree
But the things you want, and the way you talk, ain't good enough for me

For eloquence per se, I'm afraid's the ability to please
To entertain pleasure seeking speakers, eager men who like to tease
From flabby mouths and foamy jowls, they'll howl as they start to blurt their words
Saying funny things in ways to pass for much more, much more than they're worth

I'm kinda done
At least for now
With money waving people all around
I wish you luck
Yes-siree
But the things you want, and the way you talk, ain't good enough for me

Well the anchor man's a millionaire with fine combed hair cause billionaires are buying'
Face time with the public, using puppets and they promise they ain't lying
When did Senators become messengers with bullet points on how to live our lives
They'll tweet and share, and try to sell to good folks that the truth's been slowly dying

I'm kinda done
At least for now
With money waving people all around
I wish you luck
Yes-siree
But the things you want, and the way you talk, ain't good enough for me

I must say it's impressive, the excessive success one can invent
Like a pie crust, or an evening girl, who's world's bereft of common sense
My only hope is someday soon, the whole world will remember all their lives
How the working folks with dirty jokes and hopeless hopes dared to live their lives

Cause life can be fun
at least for now
Without money waving people all around
Kid ya don't need luck
yes-siree
You just need enough to promote one's love that's good enough for me
