Buried In The Sand (The Fables)

There's an old, old story that everybody knows,
'Bout a man who built his house upon the rock;
An old, old story from a long time ago,
Before the hands of time became a clock.
A straight forward meaning, a simple solid plan;
But some lack of understanding,
Kept my head buried in the sand.
Then I got no problem,
I can wash my hands of the consequences man.

There's an old time saying, I know you heard before,
The truth it hurts, but ignorance is bliss;
Without so much as weighing the consequences out,
We back away from pain towards a kiss.
Sunlight can blind you, sunlight makes you see;
And when it's hard to face the music,
You keep your head buried in the sand.
Then I got no problem,
I can wash my hands of the consequences man.

There's nothing to concern me,
No need to understand;
Did what it was you told me,
To keep my head buried in the sand.
Then I got no problem,
I can wash my hands of the consequences man.
