The Ascent of Stan

This song is by Ben Folds and appears on the album Rockin' the Suburbs (2001).

Pangs of silence
From the room upstairs
How's the view there?
Do you read what they're saying about you?
That you're no fun
Since the war was won
In fact, you have become
All of the things you've always run from

The ascent of Stan
Textbook hippie man
Get rest while you can

So where'd the years go?
All the time we had
Being poor was not such a drag in hindsight
And you wonder
Why your father was so resigned
Now you don't wonder anymore

The ascent of Stan
Textbook hippie man
Textbook hippie man
Get rest while you can

(Stan) Once you wanted revolution
(Stan) Now you're the institution
(Stan) How's it feel to be the man?
It's no fun to be the man

La-da-da
La-da-da-da
La-da-da
La-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
And now, watch it all go down

The ascent of Stan
Textbook hippie man
(Stan)
Textbook hippie man
Get rest while you can

(Stan) Once you wanted revolution
(Stan) Now you're the institution
(Stan) How's it feel to be the man?
It's no fun to be the man
