Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Understand, once he was a family man
So surely I would never, ever go through it first hand
Emulate all the shit my mother hates
I can't help but demonstrate my Freudian fate
My alibi for taking your guy
History repeats itself, it fails to die
And animal aggression is my downfall
I don't care about what you got, I want it all

[Chorus]
It's bricked up in my head, It's shoved under my bed
And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
My destructive side has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
What is it 'bout men?

[Verse 2]
I'm nurturing, I just wanna do my thing
And I'll take the wrong man as naturally as I sing
And I'll save my tears for uncovering my fears
Our behavioral patterns that stick over the years

[Chorus]
It's bricked up in my head, It's shoved under my bed
And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
My destructive side has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
What is it 'bout men?

[Chorus]
It's bricked up in my head, It's shoved under my bed
And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
My destructive side has grown a mile wide
And I question myself again "What is it 'bout men?"
What is it 'bout men?
