Data for the Turtle in the Maze

That's right, it's a song about BASIC!

lyrics

I would see you but I don't know where to look
I couldn't feel it for however long it took
I can't read you, you are not an open book
But I need you like a fish needs a hook
And I'm still collecting data for the turtle in the maze

Where the sea meets the dock
And the slow doors unlock
I'm a faster daredevil from a different block
It's easy enough to call someone's bluff
But when it's your own, it's unbearably tough

And I can't take it anymore
It's pretty basic, no need for complex metaphor
I've tried to face it, but it's so easy to ignore
How long I've wasted traveling from door to door
And I'm still examining the data from my care-free college days

You know an easy way out?
Please tell me so I can grow

The main umpire groaned "The tournament's postponed"
Grab your wife and your child cause it's time to go home
I'm still collecting data from the turtle in the maze
