"Obvious" as written by and Lou Reed....
Hey, you don't know me!
You don't know me
But you just keep on looking at me down low.
Oh no!

Digging something up...
Digging something up...
Always digging something up...
Oh no!

Hey you! I don't know you.
I don't even want to,
But you just keep looking at me down low.
Oh no!

Digging something up...
Digging something up...
Always digging something up...
Oh no!

And you make it so...
Make it so obvious...
Hey you! Fools don't fit in
The boots that I tread in,
But you just keep on looking at me down low.
Oh no!

Digging something up...
Digging something up...
Always digging something up...
Oh no!

And you make it so...
But do you get it?
Make it so...
You never get it.
You got to owe me something
Before you know what is joke and what is up.
I worked my fingers to the bone
And I won't let you stop me going up.

Why do you have to make it
So-so-so-so-so obvious
Oh no... Oh no... Oh no... Oh no...

    General CommentIn this song, I think Perry is commenting on how the media always tries to tear down anybody famous who is doing well, looking for sleaze and scandel about them (digging something up).

    General CommentI think this song is about how much Eric Avery disliked Perry at the time. Perry was saying it was so obvious that Eric wanted to keep making Perry feel like shit by always pointing out the negative.

    General CommentThis song can be be related to anybody who's trying to make something out of themselves in the world where there's always somebody trying to bring them down and get them confused from their dream of existence.
