The Ascent Of Stan

The Ascent of Stan

pangs of silence
from the room upstairs
how's the view there?
do you read what
they're saying about you?

that you're no fun
since the war was won
in fact, you have become
all of the things you've always
run from

the ascent of Stan
textbook hippy man
get rest while you can

so where'd the years go?
all the time we had
being poor was
not such a drag in hindsight

and you wondered
why your father was
so resigned
now you don't wonder anymore

the ascent of Stan
textbook hippy man
textbook hippy man
get rest while you can

[Stan]
once you wanted revolution
[Stan]
now you're the institution
[Stan]
how's it feel to be the man?
[hurts to be the man]
it's no fun to be the man

and I watched it all go down
the ascent of Stan
textbook hippy man

[Stan]
textbook hippy man
get rest while you can

[Stan]
once you wanted revolution
[Stan]
now you're the institution
[Stan]
how's it feel to be the man?
[hurts to be the man]
it's no fun to be the man
