  • Witness Jonathan Fallow, sit & stare,
    He's a cartoon engineer extraordinaire
    He's a tatterdemalion of dubious means,
    Paper champion pencil making scenes
    You see objects he sees life like
    Bulbous-eyed homunculus, half boy half rhinoceros
    People say he?s useless, it seems like he's useless
    Everyday he's useless, sometimes he feels sad
    Witness Jonathan Fallow wasting talent & time
    Nobody understands why there's happiness in his eyes
    What about social standing? What about all his goals?
    Cold, inanimate objects have no claim on his soul
    Witness Jonathan Fallow in his past years
    Work constituents give him wild cheers
    He's a natural born successful man
    No one illustrates like Jonathan can
    Stand in awe & watch him draw
    Chinese black belts chopping blocks eggplant head jack in the box
    Now he seems so useless, People say he's useless,
    Sometimes he gets mad
    Witness Jonathan Fallow wasting talent & time
    Nobody understands why there's happiness in his eyes
    What about social standing? What about all his goals?
    Cold, inanimate objects have no claim on his soul
    Witness Jonathan Fallow's darkest day,
    Watch the people he penned go far away
    He knows that "publish or perish" is the number one rule
    No one ever told him the truth could be so horribly cruel
    No way out & no way over...
    Bulbous-eyed homunculi, half boy half rhinoceri,
    Oddball creeps out of ink & lead bouncing on their paper bed
    So when you see him on the street, downtown and down and out
    Don?t say he's useless
    Witness Jonathan Fallow wasting talent & time
    Nobody understands why there's happiness in his eyes
    What about social standing? What about all his goals?
    Cold, inanimate objects have no claim on his soul
    Witness Jonathan Fallow wasting talent & time
    Nobody understands why there's happiness in his eyes
    What about social standing? What about all his goals?
    Cold, inanimate objects have no claim on his soul... Lyrics © OBO APRA/AMCOS
