Matt Black - I Don't Want To Write Songs About Women lyrics

I don't want to write songs about women
If I could learn to just get along
I could learn to love what I'm given
And when the time comes I could be strong

I could be pure, I could be faithful
I could be more for the one I was made for
I could be in you, and you could be in me
We could grow together

8 years old and I'm trying to figure out what I've seen
On the back of the rack of stacks of dirty magazines
They're all obscene
But I don't even know what that means
I only know I feel real sick

It's a drug store education
And they know how to teach
Putting pictures on the counters
While keeping them out of reach
Opening up your mind and in your heart they plant the seed
Until it's ripe enough for you to pick and eat

Flash forward five years, you graduate to the screen
Here you find a cavity, the depravity of all things
The world wide web got you caught up on a string
Wrapping those chains around you, link by link

Compromised you, straight up lied to
Born and bred to be advertised to
Still not wise to
Knowing everywhere that you look
Every billboard commercial, like they're baiting the hook
The world is a crook
Stealing all our honest inventions
With every compliment mentioned
Come somewhat tainted intentions

It's carnal
And flirting is a dangerous game
Right now, I'd just rather not play

I don't want to write songs about women
If I could learn to just get along
I could learn to love what I'm given
And when the time comes I could be strong

I could be pure, I could be faithful
I could be more for the one I was made for
I could be in you, and you could be in me
We could grow together

I'm sorry sister
See I mean no offense but you got to understand
It's been a lifetime of this
It's all corrupted
It just be noise and babble and banter
Of all us Christian boys
I want to pursue you
Fantasize through you
No faith in providence
I'm scared that I'll lose you
I need satisfaction
A female reaction
A rush to the senses that I interpret as passion
It's all connected
The darkness on the silver screen
Is the same as in my heart
And it knows how to pull my strings
It's all business
And we all know that business is good
We bought into the lies of romance
Cause they knew that we would
And sex sells
Everybody's scheming and planning
