Beggar's description of what I've been missing
Exploit your position, don't think I didn't listen
Hey I hope you're feeling a little better now

Success is so tragic, pain is your gadget
Your tongue's just lashing, just bitching by habit
Hey I hope you're feeling a little purer now
Hey I hope you're feeling securer now

Help me I plea, I don't understand
Your ways and means, you smashing young man
Help me to see, the good you have planned
You're wearing thin, you smashing young man

You preach synthetic-like, peace is an oversight
It's nothing to ignite, your self-lit spotlight
Hey I hope you're feeling a little special now
Hey I want to tell you, I think you're special now

Help me I plea, I don't understand
Your ways and means, you smashing young man
Help me to see, the good you have planned
You're wearing thin, you smashing young man

I don't recall asking for guidance
I don't recall wanting to
I don't recall bowing before you
But I'm so impressed with the kindness in your attitude

Help me I plea, I don't understand
Your ways and means, you smashing young man
Help me to see, the good you have planned
You're wearing thin, you smashing young man

Help me I plea, I don't understand
Your ways and means, you smashing young man
Help me to see, the good you have planned
You're wearing thin, you smashing young man
