Propriety

This is not the place or the time
Don’t you know you’re out o’ line, outside the line
If you wanna speak to her, you should first speak to him
And if you wanna speak to him, make an arrangement with her
And to make arrangement with her, first you write a letter to...

Why don’t we speak face to face?
Why don’t we look eachother in the eye?
Why don’t we give any trace
Of what we carry inside

You should of never heard that information
Would of never been a confrontation
Even though your skin and bones touch it
You don’t need to know so much, yet

Ya could of handled it a better way
Maybe wasn’t your place to say anything
Maybe wasn’t the right thing to do
But don’t take it too personally (refrain)

Smooth surface suddenly disturbed
This kind of conduct can be curbed

Inappropriate propriety, improper appropriateness, is it?
Appropriate impropriety, or proper inappropriateness, is it?

Just walk away, just walk away
What can you say, what can you say?

This is not the place or the time
Don’t you know you’re out of line, outside the line
If you wanna speak to him, you should first speak to her
And if you wanna speak to her, make an arrangement
Making estrangement (refrain)
