whaddya want a medal?
whaddya need a big brass band?
some hoopla
whaddya want applause?

going through all the motions
expecting different emotions
that are bigger
that are brighter
cheered for just showing up
finding out but the hard way
that it’s your way not my way
a hurrah
a hooray
a huzzah

whaddya want a reckoning?
whaddya need a bone your way?
let’s get some eats
out on the streets
a clamor
and whee
some squawks
and screams
but in your dreams
whaddya want from me?
