Three thousand miles of wilderness overcome by the flow
A lonely restitution of pavement, pomp and show
I seek a thousand answers, I find but one or two
I maintain no discomfiture, my path again renewed

Against the grain, that's where I'll stay
Swimming upstream, I maintain against the grain

Here labeled as a lunatic, sequestered and content
There ignored and defeated by the government
There's an oriented public whose magnetic force will pull
But away from the potential of the individual

Against the grain, that's where I'll stay
Swimming upstream, I maintain against the grain
