Figurehead

From "Black Bean"

I just found out I'm just a figurehead
Why am I always the last to know
Call the front desk
Tell the concierge
That I won't go, oh
Oh no, I won't go, no I won't go!
Oh no, I won't go, no I won't go!

Could I be more dim
Chances slim
Simply put I'm simple as they come
I'm downright dumb,
So feed me anything
I'll be pushed behind,
Undermined
A burden to mankind.

Figurehead
The human fraction
Figurehead
No course of action
Driven to distraction at last

Oh, so goodbye
Safe inside my stronghold in the sky
Now is the time to stay dry
But when I flood the world you will know why

They think I'm a jumper
That I'll put on a show
But they're the ones in danger
Down there sixteen floors below
You want bad I'll give you bad
I'll give you all the worst you've had
You're a big crowd
You're the cradle of civilization

Spit and shake take my wrist
I will not resist
I will not be missed but
When you're soaking wet
You might forget
To feed me anything.
You've got butterflies
In your eyes
But your nets human sized.

Figurehead
The human fraction
Figurehead
No course of action
Driven to distraction at last

Oh, so goodbye
Safe inside my stronghold in the sky
Now is the time to stay dry
But when I flood the world you will know why.

Figurehead
The human fraction
Figurehead
No course of action
