I know I owe you a better time
Then the way that I've been
But something's messing with my mind
And it's not giving in
They say that I should want to be
A man who leads us all
But every time I look I see
Another leader fall.
So I'm gonna sit in a green field
And fly a big red kite I'm gonna
Send my mind up the string and I'm
Gonna get it right.
They say that I should want to have
A big bank account
What Uncle Sam don't take from me
Man I don't need to count.
They say that I should want to stand
For what I don't believe
I'm sitting thinking to myself
What kind of man could leave.
