Johnny Cash Will Never Know Just How I Feel About Him.

When perfection rears its ugly head
and makes us regular folk look around
and wonder what went wrong
when God was passing out those free passes
you know the ones
like (your idol here) got.

When people like those great people
of distant ages past
or not so distant, maybe here and now
around you, close to you
but not close enough to touch
or even approach

We hate our heroes
they aren't the ones that stoke the fire inside
they remind us the fire is there
and make us remember what we would sooner forget
and leave on them
but we look again and see
it is us it is within us
it always was

I hung my head

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson

Nobody Lyrics - Johnny Cash

When life seems full
Of clouds and rain
And I'm full
Of nothin' but pain
Who soothes my thumpin', bumpin' brain?
Nobody

When Wintertime comes
With its snow and sleet
And me with hunger
And cold feet
Who says "Here's two bits, go and eat"?
Nobody

Well, I ain't never done nothin' to nobody
I ain't never got nothin' from nobody, no time
And until I get something from somebody, sometime
I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody, no time

When Summertime comes
All warm and clear
And my friends see me
Drawin' near
Who says "come on in and have a beer"?
Nobody

Well one time when things was
Lookin' bright
I started to whittlin' on a stick one night
Who said "Hey! That's dynamite!"?
Nobody

Mmmm, I ain't never done nothin' to nobody
I ain't never got nothin' from nobody, no time
And until I get something from somebody, sometime
I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody, no time

I ain't never done nothin' to nobody
I ain't never got nothin' from nobody, no time
And until I get something from somebody, sometime
I don't intend to do nothin' for nobody, no time

I try to change people every day. Do You?

Thanks for that. Don't know how Johnny got into the mix

seems like the idea came of how these great people set some standard we here at the bottom try to live up to, then they're either gone or unapproachable, either way we can never tell them.

The title was an afterthought to the idea but it crystallized the whole thing and that's good I guess.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.
