The Human Ostrich

I'd like to give a base for my deviance

And like the Founding Fathers

I'd like to site my grievances

I see all these people with their heads in the sand

Wondering why they're lost and saying

"I'm doing my best, man!"

But I try to tell them, there's more to life than darkness and misdirection

And I'd like to pull them out and show them my affection

But they just don't listen!

They say I'm overachieving and making them look bad and I say

It's not like that, I jsut want to elevate you to a place with less sand.
