lyrics

So many men, flattened like a desk
where soft saw-dust sets
over dented metal legs
under hard level heads

So many hours, stacked like the eggs
to be harvested
by the farmers from the hens
under surveillance

and the drawers shut tight
to hold in all the paper
and the chickens always fight
for a piece of the paper
for a piece of the paper

they cannot take any brand new high pitched sounds
they begin to tune the whole world out
they cannot take any brand new high pitched sounds
they begin to tune the whole world out
they begin to tune the whole world out

the average statistician
averages out
to the sum and the difference
of his averages
