lyrics

hey you, let’s find some excellent trouble,
I think it’s high time we rose from this rubble,
we 2 should become partners in crime,
turn on a dime, leave them all guessing tonight
let’s earn a bad reputation,
and fight to shake up this sad situation,
we might inspire the next generation
to keep asking why, to never say “die,”
excellent trouble, there for the making
we’ll burst a few bubbles, right there for the breaking,
a loose coalition of lovers and skeptics,
poets and vagabonds, beggars and mystics,
excellent trouble, only the finest,
we’ll color fluorescently outside the lines
so when, dour-faced, they ask us why we can’t stop smiling,
it’s just that it’s all so unbearably beautiful..

hey, you, have you been searching for courage,
all through dressers and boxes in storage?
unsure where you left what you are made of,
among letters and yearbooks, and sweaters and such,
what if everything we have discarded
is just ballast we drop as we gradually lift
up out of gravity’s sway? birds don’t obey,
why hesitate when there’s
excellent trouble, there for the making
we’ll burst a few bubbles, they’re there for the breaking,
a loose coalition of lovers and skeptics,
prophets and heretics, poets and mystics,
excellent trouble, only the finest,
we’ll color fluorescently outside the lines,
so when, dour-faced, they ask us why we can’t stop crying,
it’s just that it’s all so unspeakably beautiful..
my only wish is to honor this gift
to practice my part and the jaywalker’s art,
so when, dour-faced, they ask us why we can’t stop smiling,
it’s just that you’re all so unbearably beautiful..
excellent trouble.. excellent trouble…
