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.
