Pangs of silence
From the room upstairs
How's the view there?
Do you read what they're saying about you?
That you're no fun
Since the war was won
In fact, you have become all of the things you've always run away from

The ascent of stan
Textbook hippie man
Get rest while you can

So where'd the years go?
All the time we had?
Being poor was not such a drag in hindsight
And you wonder why your father was so resigned
Now you don't wonder any more

The ascent of stan
Textbook hippie man
Textbook hippie man
Get rest while you can

Stan: once you wanted revolution
Stan: now you're the institution
Stan: how's it feel to be the man?
It's no fun to be the man

And now, watch it all go down

The ascent of stan
Textbook hippie man
(stan)
Textbook hippie man
Get rest while you can

Stan: once you wanted revolution
Stan: now you're the institution
Stan: how's it feel to be the man?

It's no fun to be the man
