By Any Other Name - Lyrics

I walked around this room for days
Trying to coin another phrase to describe it
Just when I think I've shed some light
I realize it's still not right
Can't classify it

Cause a shame is a shame
By any other name
You can call it new
But it hits you just the same
You can dance around the truth
Or step into the flame
But a shame is a shame
By any other name

Two doctors tell you what went wrong
As if they knew it all along but then
It doesn't matter what they say
Until the sickness goes away again

Cause a shame is a shame
By any other name
You can call it new
But it hits you just the same
You can dance around the truth
Or step into the flame
But a shame is a shame
By any other name

Shame shame shame shame shame shame
Shame shame shame shame shame shame

Cause a shame is a shame
By any other name
Yeah, a shame is a shame
By any other name
