Alice in Yahooville

lyrics

Maybe I'm dense but I'm having a hard time learning how to get along around here:
Everywhere I turn I see a celebration of ignorance that reeks of fear.
I always seem to piss a lot of people off whenever I speak my mind,
They'd rather that I shut up and suffer fools gladly—might as well be deaf dumb and blind.

Although it may be true, it's never safe to say that the emperor has no clothes;
No one likes to find out that they've been played—I suppose that might explain my woes.
Folks around here like to shoot the messenger, they're not very fond of change,
And if you're a stranger, better keep it to yourself, because they'll just think you're strange.

Yahoo, welcome to Yahooville!
Yahoo!
Yahoo, welcome to Yahooville!
Yahoo!

You can imagine how Alice must have felt when she fell down the rabbit hole,
Keeping the virtues of reason and diplomacy certainly takes its toll
When right is wrong, smart is dumb, and sanity is insane,
You'd best lay low when the queen comes around if you want to hold onto your brain.

Yahoo, welcome to Yahooville!
Yahoo!
Yahoo, welcome to Yahooville!
Yahoo!

What do you do when you find yourself washed up, a stranger in a strange land,
Where the voice of reason is heard only by horses in a language you can't understand?
Don't ask me, I haven't got the answer, the only thing I can say
Is that I would find a way to join up with the herd, and do my best to learn how to neigh.

Yahoo, welcome to Yahooville!
Yahoo!
Yahoo, welcome to Yahooville!
Yahoo!
