Lyrics:

Oblivious
I'll run the distance but I'll grant that my persistence has been offered without dignity or grace
I'll shed my cover when I finally find a lover I can face
I feel the sadness as I listen to the madness of the pundits who are paid to rant all day
I feel the joy as I observe my baby boy record a K
Chorus
We bob and weave the fabric of space and time
Often oblivious to our state
When the absurd merges into the sublime we might be just in time for our date with our fate

Somewhere in Iowa I swear it'd be to die for if they only could transplant the Cascade range
Home in Seattle I was thinking about the cattle on the plains
Halfway to London I was lost in a conundrum that has baffled the entire United States
Halfway to Paris I was thinking Roger Maris sure was great
Chorus
Two more tequilas and I'm sure that I can feel ya and I'll empathize may even assuage
Hey Pocohontas do you think that they might want us both on stage?
Take five your highness and I'll mitigate my shyness and I'll find somebody's ego to inflate
If you want my frank opinion you'd do best to find the minion who can wait
Chorus
I'll run the distance but concede that my persistence has been offered without dignity or grace
I'll shed my cover when I finally find a lover I can face
