The Lyrics

Part of my "How We Do It" self-challenge. Let's break that shy fellow out of their shell! Those following along with the video version instead of the album version like I did can ignore the last words of the first two lines to maintain pacing. Don't ask why the two versions are different, I ain't got the damnedest.
You're filled with meekness, please
It's your main weakness, see
Mate, yuh, yuh

Ayy, think you need to be more animate cause I'm not down for this
Ask you to speak up, makes you down your pitch, I'm close to howlin' fits
Gotta stop, your mouth is downwards in your shirt, I'm flounderin'
You may be my good mate but I do hate your dispassionate
Words, I can't tell if what I heard was "five grape nuts"
Ooh, unzip your hood, tell me if that was "eye pain sucks"
It's pretty damn easy to apply a bit of effort
Up volume a notch, know that your mouth is not a desert
Aim for louder speakin', hearin' what you're sayin', bud
Will give facts, we need 'em, if only you'd say 'em, bud
I don't see a reason for the hesitation, bud
Though your voice is feeble, can tell throat's not scrapin', bud
We don't want your voice stifled
I'm so sick of this unendin' cycle
You try to speak, I say "what?", please, I've never liked those
Indistinct sentences, what I loathe

Please, don't mumble (be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, c'mon, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, speak loud, c'mon, speak loud, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up, pipe up)
Please speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up quick, be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, pipe up, pipe up)
Don't mumble (pipe up, pipe up)
Speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, c'mon, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, speak loud, c'mon, speak loud, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up, pipe up)
Please speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up quick, be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, pipe up, pipe up)

Tell me what you're thinkin' cause I wanna know that, man (that, man)
Cause there's lots you could say, be a blab-man (blab-man)
Cause there's lots in your head, know I'm right
I hoped you'd say where rebels go at night
I know that you might be wired with a little bomb
Makin' me collateral, look, asshole, I'll be just fine
Makin' me collateral? It's sad, it's not that dark
I could see the cables and I clipped 'em while you chewed that sock, ayy
And that didn't phase me, ayy, you could call me crazy, ayy
Got a speech? Don't save it, ayy, I know how to take it, ayy
Means your voice is raisin', ayy, close to secret-takin', ayy
If it gets you shoutin', ayy, I'll take all that hate in, ayy
Shake that shyness off, start spillin' all your real thoughts, ayy
Give me whole deets, dude, or the shiv talks, ayy
Spare you for a little bit, still traitor after all, ayy
Prove you're not so meek before you fall

Please, don't mumble (be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, c'mon, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, speak loud, c'mon, speak loud, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up, pipe up)
Please speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up quick, be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, pipe up, pipe up)
Don't mumble (pipe up, pipe up)
Speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, c'mon, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, speak loud, c'mon, speak loud, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up, pipe up)
Please speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, be distinct)
Don't mumble (pipe up quick, be distinct)
Speak loud (pipe up, pipe up, pipe up, pipe up)

Or just break them. Please don't ask me why I suddenly took a hard turn into torture there, I think it just came to me as I was worrying about running out of material.
