Kid

If Iím locked onto a track
The junction lever has gotta be slack
But there are no springs that go in it
I get off and then I walk a bit
See the clouds, they turn away
Thatís okay, I never understood them anyway
Maybe itís better, could be much better
You know it could be a lot better this way

Wipe that bug out of my eye

Can I ride within your car?
Whatís that drifting across the water?
It doesnít take much to turn around
Unless you donít care what can be found
Can I go within your space?
Donít give me that pathetically painted face
When your high horse finally lets you down
Do you think Iíll be around?

You try to subjugate me
You try to assimilate me
We never understood you either
And we will push you further

I think youíve got it way too easy
Ambition can be unpretentious you twit
I think youíre plain old tired and lazy
Youíre not doing what you should kid!
Throw out all your fruitless philosophy
And drive out all your delicate dreams
Itís time to put you back on schedule
Itís not really quite as rough as it seems

Wipe that bug out of my eye

You try to annihilate me
You would assassinate me
Youíve got the needle backwards
Youíve got the needle backwards
