Ironic (Expanded Version)

An old man worked hard his whole life
Saving money and died before he retired
It’s an ex wife who caused his mother to hate
It’s a meeting that’s canceled after you’ve got on the train

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think?

It’s like praying to a god that’s not there
It’s giving all control to a cult that doesn’t care
It’s the intuition that you just couldn’t hear

Who would’ve thought… it figures

Ms. Insecure was afraid to live
She found an older man who said he’d love her and give
She gave him her whole damn life and gave him some kids
And when she realized he was a sociopath she thought
“Well isn’t this nice…”

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think?

It’s like chronic pain when you’re really young
It’s smoking weed when you’re already high
It’s your own advice that you just didn’t take

Who would’ve thought… it figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up
In your face

Believing magic is the devil and finding out you’re a medium
Burying your feelings when you need them for understanding yourself
It’s like teaching your kids about god then finding out it’s not real
It’s your family disowning you because you pursue your truth

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think
A little too ironic… and, yeah, I really do think…

It’s a blow job when you’re just six years old
Because your stepdad is only mad all the time
It’s your own self that you just never loved

Who would’ve thought… it figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out
Helping you out
