"Scarecrow" as written by and Benny Goodman....
I am the everything, the all-knowing, the omnipotent one
I watch the fields, I do not feel, I circumnavigate everyone
I am the scarecrow, alone and disconnected
You stare right past me undetected
I am only here when you expect it
Nowhere man, I live invisible and feel a sadness undescribable
I hang here motionless holding a bible, no revival
I died and became apathy, then married vacancy
Then moved my children to the tundra of complacency
I do not exist in your world
I've burned the bridges, I have cut the life line
Now all I have left is my mind
Which judges all of you, analyzes all your dumb philosophies
In wonderment of how you all have ruined your ecology
Yet you do not hear for I am to you only but nothingness
And I can't understand why I'm the only one that feels like this
It's all piss, I flee, out of all the people that have left me
The one I miss most is me

I am the scarecrow
And I am so alone

And I've seen thirty years of down time
The face of a clown, a stick for a spine
From a grandiose small town mind and crows fly all around mine
They shit on my shoulder, I got no voice, no mobility
I get older, heated but colder
No yield in my field, fuck my opinion
I stare at your houses in the distance
Silent persistence, at night your windows glisten
I got nothing to say cause no one would listen anyway
So I remain against the grain, I've seen sunny days with rain
Busted knuckles in pain and never complained
Dirt is my domain, my view is plain
But I'm invisible, sounds mystical
Not really, the days are dry, the evening chilly
The only person that understands is little Billy when he's lonely
Let me feel something, make me worth a damn
Make me new again, make me a fuckin' man
I've seen the rise and fall, the come and go
The high and low, and if you knew what I know
Sometimes one does not reap what he sews
The wind blows, the moon glows, the water flows
The rain turns to snow and the ground is froze
And only God knows why that's the way it goes

I am the scarecrow
And I am so alone
I'm so alone

I am the scarecrow
And I am so alone
I'm so alone, so alone, I am so alone, so alone

    General CommentDanny and Brooks looking at all the people around them while their lives are screwed up on drugs, and how alone and jaded they are. They look down on everyone else, although it seems that there is a hint of resentment at these people who ignore them because they are scared of them... scared of the town junkies....scared of the scarecrow...
