Far Be It From Me

Far Be It From Me

Far be it from me to ask you to bite the bullet
That’d only bust your teeth out real slow
Far be it from me to load you down and ask you to pull it
Oh, far be it from me

Far be it from me to try to light a fire under you
That’d only burn your mind out, yes I know
Far be it from me to ask you to figure out just what the hell are you doing
Oh, far be it from me

It’s time for you to be a bit of a flake, you see
Idealistic, take your cake and eat it too
A starry-eyed, utopian, unrealistic dreamer
Oh honey, well don’t let me wake you

Far be it from me to try to put your feet back on the ground
That would sink you into quicksand real slow
Far be it from me to try to pull your head out of the clouds
Oh, far be it from me

It’s time for you to be a total flake, you see
Idealistic, take your cake and eat it too
A starry-eyed, utopian, unrealistic dreamer
Oh honey, well don’t let me wake you

And when it feels this world is just a bit too real
And the carrion crow is cacklin' in the tree
And your soul is being offered up in some evil-hearted sacrifice
Just say, oh far be it from me

Far be it from me
Far be it from me
Far be it from me
Far be it from me
