about

He's asking questions, but they won't get him the answers he's looking for.

lyrics

Look who's talking now:
Some kind of baby genius,
One hand on the prow,
The other's thumb is in your mouth.
You scan the horizon,
Wishing on a star,
Waiting on some old Familiar
To tell you where you are going now.
The little king's gown
Was ripped up in the galley.
They pushed him down
And crumpled up his paper crown.
Now, he's a jester.
The dogs in the street
Won't stop yapping at him.
Try to be discreet,
But they still smell it and it's sweet,
But he gets away.
He's wishing on a star,
Waiting on some old Familiar
To tell him where you are going now.
He hangs on the word
Of every peer who panders.
A dream deferred,
Put off till next season comes.
Don't miss the finale
Wishing on a star,
Waiting on some old Familiar
To tell you where you are going now.
