The Lyrics

Unforeseen events tend to happen
Can be only so careful in what you do
I'm frustrated. I did everything just right
Despite the politics I remain true

Too late to stop myself from failing
I took a chance. Results came up snake eyes
You told me everything would be all right
Read through you. I was not blinded by the lies

Don't want that stuff to hit the fan
I follow my instinct, and increase my attention span
I’m not gonna heed your advice to take it like a man
I’m getting out of here. I know that stuff’s gonna hit the fan

CYA, three letters to live life by
Make a mistake create an alibi
Don't ignore me just because I won’t be your scapegoat
You screwed up. Now try to keep your career afloat

Don't want that stuff to hit the fan
I follow my instinct, and increase my attention span
I’m not gonna heed your advice to take it like a man
I’m getting out of here. I know that stuff’s gonna hit the fan

DKTOS, so hope someone who does will judge pacing. More philosophical than funny, which is fine, but "blinded by the lies" sounded like a fantastic pun on "blinded by the light. Fives from me.
