this is a song by Zeke Braxton

notes: my dad has a funny paradoxical version of this "wise one" song we all find it cool but he will never sing it on a recording! the harmony was kinda unintentional but I still think it to be is good.

the words
(these may not be 100% right) their the lyric file though they are written and sung by my friend Zeke Braxton aka Luke Holt

when i was a boy in Brooklyn i wanted to be a star
but the jester/sage inside me said he wanted to be the czar
i am the wise one

whenever i would ask someone if they had the time of day
they'd say i do but it's not for you and they'd ride the bus away
i am the wise one

i'd walk into a restaurant Wiley eyed and stray
i'd order a meal they'd chase me out of there
because i didn't pay
i am the wise one
but nobody cries but the wise ones

i sit on clouds with deep disdain
and watch the hemoglobin rain
that puors from other people's pain
i lick it off my hands
i am the wise one

when other martyrs smile at me it makes me feel alive
i say come here I'll buy you a beer and we shimmy on to the dive
i am the wise one

i look on down at a piece of driftwood hovering in the sea
i pick out and drop it down say "man, it looks like me"
i am the wise one
but nobody cries but the wise one

i rest my head on ashcan thrones
drowning out the evil drones
lullabies in monotones
i sing them to myself
i am the wise one
but nobody cries but the wise one and
