Regulate – Why Can’t We? Lyrics

Why Can’t We? Lyrics By Regulate

Going with the motions
Doing what’s expected
Feeling what we’re taught
Disconnected from our heart

I’m not weak because I care
I shouldn’t have to compromise
I hope when you hear this
Something clicks behind your eyes

We don’t have to be afraid
We don’t have to be like them
We don’t have to be angry &
We don’t have to play pretend

It’s the way we share words
They morph from brain to mouth
Masking them with a joke
Always weary of what comes out
I know have it in me
To really speak from the soul
But it’s the ego that stops me
& keeps me playing that role

We don’t have to cause pain
We don’t have to keep it in
We don’t have to be the strongest &
We don’t have to always win
We don’t have to act out
We don’t have to have a plan
We don’t have to be the best
We don’t have to be The Man

Why can’t we show love?
Why can’t we say sorry?
Why can’t we try?
Why can’t we be ok with not being right?
Why can’t we grow?
Why can’t we be there for each other?
Why can’t we be there for ourselves?
Why can’t we be real?
Why can’t we open up?
Why can’t we feel?
