  • 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 Writer/s: ED ROLAND
