lyrics

Please forgive me for my thoughts impure
But I would like to make one scree du coeur
Pardon me if I use some metaphor
I can see your border fence
You got a bullhorn but no recompense
The rhetoric makes me just a little tense
There's no shovel to bury the evidence

I get the feeling there's a few others like you
You've all been reading the last odd pages of a manifesto written for you

Please allow me this one request
Get this platform off my chest
Cannot even feign any interest
Looking through our storied past
We always came in first and raised the mast
The problem was we thought the die was cast
Sometimes you just have to come in last

I get the feeling there's a few others like you
You've all been reading the last odd pages of a manifesto written for you

Though I call you on your stance
Even I respect the dance
Destiny is rarely happenstance
Where you stand's not written in stone
We all build a platform of our own
Sometimes you just have to be shown
We either stand together or stand alone
