Sometimes
Sometimes you've got to be the punch line
Well and sometimes
Sometimes you get to tell a joke

There's no difference on the end
That you end upon
I've got a preference I'll defend
Right, right over wrong, right over wrong

I won't wait 'till they say when
Or wait for them to tell me when I can
Why would I wait for them
If I waited for them then
I'd be no different than them
And I'm so certain that I am

Someone
Someone will try to be the hammer
And someone
Somebody ends up as the nail

Who cares what end you end upon
The hammers break and nails bend
I'll still take right, right over wrong
And that's what I'll defend
That's what I'm defending

I won't wait 'till they say when
Or wait for them to tell me when I can
Why would I wait for them
If I waited for them then
I'd be no different than them
And I'm so certain that I am

I won't wait 'till they say when
Or wait for them to tell me when I can
Why would I wait for them
If I waited for them then
I'd be no different than them
And I'm so certain that I am

Sometimes you've got to be the punch line
Sometimes you get to tell the joke
Sometimes you've got to be the punch line
And I'm so certain that I am
Certain that I am
