Happy Medium

In these times of polarized opinions, the idea of compromise seems out of step with the current political mood. As I was going over the back catalogue, I listened to one of my older songs that railed against the idea of bland middle-of-the-roadness.

What was I thinking?

Given the real risks of unfettered power in the (tiny) hands of an egomaniacal sociopath and his sycophants, the idea of boring mediocrity now seems quaintly appealing. I guess the moral is be careful what you wish for.

Regardless, for your analysis and listening pleasure, here is Happy Medium.

Verse 1
Is it a race to the bottom
Or a float to the top?
As long as I keep going
Why should it ever stop
I keep thinking in the box
Matching up my socks
Synchronize my clocks
Diversify my stocks

Chorus
I should not complain about the tedium
If I’ve settled for the happy medium

Verse 2
I like it in the middle
And that’s where I stay
It’s not that I don’t care
But not enough to sway
I keep sitting on the fence
Avoiding all suspense
Never cause offence
It’s just common sense

Chorus
I should not complain about the tedium
If I’ve settled for the happy medium

Instrumental

Verse 3
If I start a revolution
I’ll keep it in my mind
I know it’s no solution
I’m not the fighting kind
I won’t take a stand
Sitting on my hands
My head in the sand
I’d rather keep it bland

Chorus
I should not complain about the tedium
If I’ve settled for the happy medium
I should not complain about the tedium
If I’ve settled for the happy medium


That said, be well, really!
