Lyrics

Shoulda Woulda Coulda, by Kenny Weill

What would future me say to today’s me
(Shoulda done more, shoulda done more)
You got lazy, full of apathy
(Shoulda done more, shoulda done more)
This used to be the land of the free
(Shoulda done more, shoulda done more)
It’s now a cult of personality
(Shoulda done more, shoulda done more)

We bitched and moaned all day long
(Woulda done more, woulda done more)
It’s clear we handled the whole thing wrong
(Woulda done more, woulda done more)
You get the sense we don’t belong
(Woulda done more, woulda done more)
‘Cuz this place of promise has up and gone
(Woulda done more, woulda done more)

Chorus
Shoulda woulda coulda
Shoulda woulda coulda
But the damage is done
Remind me, who has won

Shoulda woulda coulda
Shoulda woulda coulda
Now we’re stuck in a hole
With the other lost souls
Deep in a hole
With so many lost souls

Bridge:
Banana Republic
You got nothin’ to fear
Banana Republic
It’ll never happen here
Banana Republic
Hey, look over there
Banana Republic
Nothin’ to see here

A people united in only in name
(Coulda done more, coulda done more)
We got no one but ourselves to blame
(Coulda done more, coulda done more)
Why’d we act so docile and tame
(Coulda done more, coulda done more)
When the other side wasn’t playin’ no game
(Coulda done more, coulda done more)

Sane explanations are hard to find
(Shoulda done more, shoulda done more)
How we could have been so damn blind
(Woulda done more, woulda done more)
While they were brainwashin’ weaker minds
(Coulda done more, coulda done more)
Into the basest impulse of mankind
(Shoulda done more, shoulda done more)

Chorus
