smashing young man lyrics – collective soul

beggar’s description
of what i’ve been missing
exploit your position
don’t think i didn’t listen
hey i hope you’re feeling
a little better now

success is so tragic
pain is your gadget
your tongue’s just lashing
just b*tching by habit
hey i hope you’re feeling
a little purer now
hey i hope you’re feeling
securer now

help me i plea
i don’t understand
your ways and your means
you smashing young man
help me to see
the good you have planned
you’re wearing me thin
you smashing young man

you preach synthetic-like
peace is an oversight
it’s nothing to ignite
your self-lit spotlight
hey i hope you’re feeling
a little special now
hey i want to tell you
i think you’re special now

help me i plea
i don’t understand
your ways and your means
you smashing young man
help me to see
the good you have planned
you’re wearing me thin
you smashing young man

i don’t recall asking for guidance
i don’t recall wanting to
i don’t recall bowing before you
but i’m so impressed
with the kindness in your att*tude

help me i plea
i don’t understand
your ways and your means
you smashing young man
help me to see
the good you have planned
you’re wearing me thin
you smashing young man… repeat.
