LYRICS
LEADING FROM BEHIND
Words & Music by Lee Levin & Cris Zalles

Just don't pay attention, they don't understand
So what if you voted "present" all the time
Everyone is different, you’re a proven one of a kind
Some work to get it done, you just wait and watch it unwind

So, you didn't have experience but your radiance was just enough
So, you come across a bit imperious but you make them all delirious with your smile,
So What!

You go up to come down, you go straight just to turn around
Or you take a left three times to make a right
You tell the truth when you bluff, you say you're sorry just to show you're tough
It's all so brilliant how you blow my mind 
I've never heard of someone leading from behind

Once you voted against it, "the debt ceiling shouldn't be raised"
But now you see light, so what it was just a mistake
It was you who had the vision, we don't always have to wear the pants
But now we got no pressure, for leadership we look to France

So you doubled down and rolled the dice
You got advice from John Corzine (lost your mind?)
You always shut down every argument
When you check your teleprompter for your line

You go up to come down, you go straight just to turn around
Or you take a left three times to make a right
You tell the truth when you bluff, you say you're sorry just to show you're tough
It's all so brilliant how you blow our minds 
We've never heard of someone leading from behind

It’s such a revolutionary concept, finally someone’s leading us from behind
Someday history will say, "You've got to help me spin this better,
for years I've tried defending you the best I can
You can't expect me just to lie forever, I'm not as good as Debbie Wasserman"

 

You go up to come down, you go straight just to turn around
Or you take a left three times to make a right
You tell the truth when you bluff, you say you're sorry just to show you're tough
It's all so brilliant how you blow our minds 
You never thought that you were leading
And now you know that you weren’t leading
We never heard of someone leading from behind
