FREE CEE with tongue buried deep in my cheek

  THE GENESIS OF GENIUS

Someone's in the room drinking stale beer and smoking menthol cigarettes
someone's in the parlor playing poker while making foolish bets
someone's having her seventh baby this earth needs like it needs more pollution
and then there's a genius like me trying to come up with a solution

someone one's seeking answers that are so hard to find
someone's got secrets and perversion on his mind
someone's looking for a genius he thinks is over there
when he's standing with me and my brilliance laid bare

everyone's looking for an excuse they can write down in notes
every phony politician is paying lobbyists for votes
every physician is seeking a patient to see
while all he has to do is consult a genius like me

everyone's trying as hard as they can to prove they're not dumb
Yet they can't see the destruction I know is sure to come
everyone has prayers and know there are hungry people to feed
while all the time they need only find a genius like me to end gregariousness and greed
