When I found we could have some brains
I was the first in line, cause we were, like
Dragging our knuckles along the ground
(dragging our knuckles along the ground)
Ever since, I've been convinced that every
Sacred thought is mine, and you were still
Dragging your knuckles along the ground
(dragging your knuckles along the ground)

Cause I think I'm there, dude (don't get ahead of yourself)
I think I'm there, dude
(Already high)

And when they asked us who will lead
I thought it surely must be me
But I stood up too fast
(I stood up too fast)
Because as soon as I was boss
The next one in line took my head clean off
Cause I stood up too fast
(I stood up too fast)

I was barely in my teens when I decided I was tired
Of always like dragging my knuckles along the ground
(dragging my knuckles along the ground)
So with all due haste I based until I got so freakin wired
Forgot I was dragging my knuckles along the ground
(dragging my knuckles along the ground)

I thought I was there, dude (you'll got ahead of yourself)
I thought I was there, dude
Already high

And when they asked for volunteers
I must have thought they said 'drink beers'
And I stood up too fast
(I stood up too fast)

I can imagine things that can't possibly exist
And then I add them to an ever-expanding list
And when I've solved every significant test there is
Then I'll move on no matter how many clues I've missed

It's so easy to be smart but it's a struggle to be wise
You shouldn't be always throwing your weight around
(always throwing your weight around)
It's much better to be humble than to have a big hat size
Or you'll be just begging somebody to take you down
(begging somebody to take you down)

And you'll be nowhere, man (you got ahead of yourself)
And you'll be nowhere, man
Already high

And right before your very eyes
I have ignored my own advice
Cause I stood up too fast
(I stood up too fast)
And nobody has the slightest choice
But to put up with my droning voice
When I stood up too fast
(I stood up too fast)
::repeat until end::
