Stood Up

Composer: Todd Rundgren
Duration: 4:44
When I found we could have some brains
I was the first in line, cause we were, like
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

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

And when they asked us who will lead
I thought it surely must be me
But 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 was barely in my teens when I decided I was tired
Of always like 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

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

And when they asked for volunteers
I must have thought they said 'drink beers'
And 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
I'll just move on no matter how many clues I've missed

Its easy to be smart but it's a struggle to be wise
You shouldn't be 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

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

And right before your very eyes
I have ignored my own advice
Cause 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
