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 is 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 your 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 
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 attitudee
