Only regret
Not having regrets
A boy with spindly legs
Trapped in his backyard

You live, you learn
He’s not learned enough
A boy at the blackboard
Solves outside the rules

A cheater, a lie
He skipped all the steps
A boy with faultless past
A conscience so pristine

How nice, so clean
A child 'til the end
You almost had them fooled
You almost passed for man

Born and bred on air conditioning
Sterile home and pesticides
While his neighbors earned their grass stains
he was safely locked inside
pounding fists into the pavement
Begging for the same mistakes
longing for the long forgotten
Even so much longer lost

Big Sid was just a brainless snake
and I know there’s not a gator living in the Cummings lake
but still the story stays
legends still remain
not all are born to make front page
and even if the world’s a great big pseudo theater stage
who has time for plays?
who’d care anyways?

Legend, yeah right
Footnote, not quite
Blink and you’ve missed him
Antithesis of sin

Managed no scratch
No scars attached
He knows it makes no sense
A yearn for some regret

I know this makes no sense
The need for some regret
Trail caution through the cracks
A soft and riskless track

Big Sid was just a snake
Big Sid was just a snake
Big Sid was just a snake
But they still know his name

There’s nothing in that lake
There’s nothing in that lake
there’s nothing in that lake
and some are still afraid

Big Sid was just a brainless snake
and I know there’s not a gator living in the Cummings lake
but still the story stays
legends still remain
not all are born to make front page
and even if the world’s a great big pseudo theater stage
who has time for plays?
who’d care anyways?

They say you live and then you learn
But I’ve managed to learn nothing and I offer ever less
A speech with nothing said
A book that’s never read
And yes I know this makes no sense
Jealous of the things most would like to forget or recompense
But try these baby shoes
And feel what it’s like to have everything to lose
