If anyone's moving,
we'll all shift around
to the way that is used to be--
monocot down.

A sweet disposition,
ran from the small town.
As life passes by me,
put the monocot down.

My timing was pioneer
I had nothing against the fear.
They said we're atomic, a echoing bomb,
the sign of the storm before the calm.

Let me show my importance,
make me more than a noun.
I know they'll never forget it
when the monocot's down.

My timing was pioneer,
I had nothing against the fear.
Almost as barren as north Vietnam,
the sign of the storm before the calm.

My friends are slow calling,
stuck in quick delay.
Someday I'd to go back there,
before it all goes away.

But now at least I expect it,
my home sweet ghost town.
Someday I'd to go back there
and put the monocot down.
