Well I would greatly enjoy the ability
To temporarily sew up my lips
Many hours lamenting their activity
To reminisce without chills would be bliss

Yet here I sit dreading the day ahead
The repercussions of what has been said
But the truth is they weren’t even listening
And the tragedy’s all in my head

Well I sure wouldn’t mind the invention of
A reversible lobotomy
Every now and then click I can turn it off
And the worry would finally cease

But unfortunately things don’t work that way
Fairly certain they all know I’m lame
But the truth is they didn’t give it much thought
Hell they barely remember my name

Well isn’t that often the case
Wasting time just to save face
While in the shuffle of the day-to-day race
We sacrifice our peace for a place
