head in the sand

here today
a thought
just one
is it enough?
do you want another one?

where did that thought go?
did you see it?
maybe I imagined it
they tend to come and go
plans are funny that way

it's like my father said
"you've got to plan for the future"
and it's true
(what they say)
about life getting in the way

"life is what happens
when you're making other plans
but what are you planning
with your head in the sand
with your thoughts in the air
and your dreams laid bare
you've got to plan for the future son"

but how will I know when I get there?

"plan for tomorrow
but don't forget about the past
for the past is the place
that you've been to last
got to turn the page
got to turn another one
get back on that bike son
show 'em that you've already won"

and it's true
what they claim
there's rarely anyone else to blame
it's kike my father said
only the words have been changed
