Metric – False Dichotomy Lyrics

Lyrics False Dichotomy – Metric

Told we could be who we wanted
Or get what we needed, hey yeah
One and the other competing
Over the meaning, hey yeah

Back when I said that I want it all
This wasn’t the point at all
Hostile to that superficial view
Show me something that can’t be bought
It’s harder to do than I thought
False dichotomy, no choice to choose
When you don’t know if you should fall
If there’d be a net at all
Pleasure gets so easily abused
Show me something that can’t be bought
It’s harder to do than I thought
False dichotomy, no choice to choose

Hate
Love
Hate
Love

And when you don’t want to chase it
But can’t stand to waste it, hey yeah
It’s either rags into riches
Or life in the trenches, hey yeah

Back when I said that I want it all
This wasn’t the point at all
Hostile to that superficial view
Show me something that can’t be bought
It’s harder to do than I thought
False dichotomy, no choice to choose
When you don’t know if you should fall
If there’d be a net at all
Pleasure gets so easily abused
Show me something that can’t be bought
It’s harder to do than I thought
False dichotomy, no choice to choose

Hate, love (Hate, love)
Hate, love (Hate, love)
Hate, love
Hate, love
Hate, love
Hate, love

Hate
Love
Hate
Love
Hate
Love
Hate
Love
