I'm Way Ahead Of You(But Does That Mean I Walk Alone?)

Folder: 
Thought For Food

she said to me, let's get out of the middle east
we've been there too long
i'm way ahead of her
sinse day one

he said to me, let's stop uplifting the banks
they've got all and take more
i'm way ahead of him
sinse day one

and i said

i'm way ahead of you, you know,
now that the economies broken
you see the tidal wave coming
is the damage already done?
and the next wave that comes
will you see it before it does
i'm way ahead of you, you know,
but does that mean i walk alone?

i'm way ahead of you,..
but does that mean i walk alone..?

neither patting myself on the back,
nor exclusively putting them down,
i just don't understand why it had to come this far

cause i see your next step, elitist
stepping on others
crushing opposition
and planting your flag

i see your next step, elitist
big leap on mankind
pushing the envelope
i know the secret inside

i'm way ahead of you,
but does that mean i walk alone?
i'm way ahead of you,
you know i know

i've had this feeling so long
i've had this feeling so long

now i see an ol' stranger on the street
a familiar face he once had
undisturbed by bombs and debt
now he's a troubled soul
and recalling a song
watching the stoic squirm
is strangely exciting
but to that stranger i also said

i'm way ahead of you, you know,
now that the economies broken
you see the tidal wave coming
is the damage already done?
and the next wave that comes
will you see it before it does
i'm way ahead of you, you know,
but does that mean i walk alone?
i'm way ahead of you, you know,
but does that mean i walk alone?
i just want to spend time,
not money,
enjoy life,
and make things right

and make things right

you once said i get ahead of myself
but all i saw was you falling behind
don't you see...?
now that the economies broken
you see the tidal wave coming
is the damage already done?
and the next wave that comes
will you see it before it does
i'm way ahead of you, you know,
but does that mean i walk alone?
i'm way ahead of you, you know,
but does that mean i walk alone?
i'm way ahead of you, y'know...i've had this feeling so long
i've had this feeling so long
i just want to spend time,
not money,
express life,
it'll make things right

i'm way ahead of you,..
but does that mean i walk alone..?
i'm way ahead of you, you know
i know
i've had this feeling so long..
