<p>Hey mister, don't point at me,
You shout rhetoric nonsense like a Pavlovian model
Responding to his questions.

Hey teacher, arrogance is bliss,
You spend your time turning water into life
As if you were God's foreman.

Is it any wonder
Things seem so awry?
We swim in a sea of confusion,
We don't have to think to survive
So nobody listens.

Hey recluse, dont shout at me,
You proclaim yourself expert by extensions of the methods
Detailed in your magazines.

Hey downer, don't prey on me,
We've all got bum raps that torment us day to day
That we hoist on our own shoulders.

Is it any wonder
People pass you by?
Your plea for understanding
Is heard as desperate lies?
Nobody listens.

I can't help you...

Is it any wonder
Things are so inane?
So many quests for compassion
Are just for someone's personal gain.

So nobody listens to you.
