There ain't any words to save this
So I'll come flat out and say it
You can't write me off as a misanthrope
The ???

Why do we hurt each other?
Why do we hurt each other?
You hurt me

I want you to know it's not just us right now
It's everybody everywhere, forever and ever
I don't know what kind of drugs he or she was doing
And they put me on the plane, and they said "Hey, man, you can't fly this thing"

Why do we hurt each other?
Why do we hurt each other?
You hurt me, I hurt you
It feels so bad
It feels so good

Little children walking hand-in-hand
Making little angels in the sand
You hurt me

Why do we hurt each other?
Why do we hurt each other?
