1.
All my friends and my family are remarkable people they are nothing like the creeps in this town there is time still ahead of me with the last among equals I am keeping both my ears to the ground there's a feeling I've been getting that I have earned the town and state that I am in I cannot leave; my feet would stop me from stepping I'd kiss the ground but I don't know where it has been oh no there are reasons but I can't explain well I can but not to you oh I'm getting better at the waiting game and I don't want to lose we all are products of circumstances and we reflect the sort of people we have known whether by blood or by extended olive branches all these people have determined how we've grown And as I said very tactfully there's a mine shaft and a steeple and the otherwise indifferent middle ground

Daughters 02:34
they expect the worst 'cause they got here first and they know exactly what they became it is unlawful but not as awful as several legal things I could name cause when the uninformed are uniformed it helps us know who to ignore all their strongest convictions are built upon fiction and they haven't figured out what for daughters lock up your mothers and all of the others You'll say where you came from and we'll all be stunned they let you leave home unconvinced 'cause they heard where they've been to and what they turned into and they haven't slept ever since it must be hard to grow old and find you were told all kinds of terrible advice but they've got no excuse for their passive abuse and their product isn't worth the price daughters lock up your mothers and all of the others and all of their mothers they don't care so we don't care too

Golden Rules 02:36
here there be drags we don't care about anything you're part of it now what do we expect we're all rope and no neck we're some other things too i think the worst was my first mistake I didn't think you'd break you broke golden rules cause you wanted to and anyway we're encouraged to change our minds we don't disagree when we're at our best like an old family crest we are pointless and proud
4.
Be Warned 02:51
be warned I'm not twice the man I used to be so why should we still stumble through rebuttals and complaints we can't explain before we are born we ought to be warned of the terrible things that we'll do to ourselves waste effort waste time and lose our place in line all the time and we can't believe what we do to ourselves
5.
there's no reason for me to mention my opinion of their intentions if there's no reason then why the trouble why the masses and why the huddle the voice of reason sometimes stutters so instead we can ask our brothers we will keep doing as we have done over and over and that's final there's no reason to sing the anthem if you don't want to pay their ransom
6.
though you don't understand I meant every word that I thought that I said that you heard you were there I never claimed to know anything but what I know I will never be asked to explain everyone everywhere believes everyone everywhere else should leave I've remained on the shelf you are overdue we are what we've done so I'm nothing to you if I'm less than you'd guess I guess I'm to blame if I'm more you can thank the best half of my name everyone everywhere believes everyone everywhere else should leave and I don't have the heart to disagree so I'll try as hard as anyone can to disregard our basic similarities and choose myself over my fellow man though you don't understand I meant every word
