Listen you don’t know
You don’t know my mind
When what you thought was the core
Turned out to be the rind
If I need your advice
I will let you know
But listen until then
This is no call in show NO, NO, NO
Cause I tell you a story
Bout what happened today
Nothing profound Just something to say
And you write a description on your notebook pad
For five different ailments
Didn’t know I had
Listen you don’t know
You don’t know my mind
You thought the core was the ring

    General CommentI think the lyrics are about looking too deeply into things that are really rather shallow- looking for meanings in things which have no meaning. Like somebody thinking something you say is a really big deal (it's the core, the main part) when it turns out you really don't feel that way (it's the rind, just the outside shell). I hate it when people think they understand the way *I* think or feel but there's no way for them to know my mind- especially if they can't tell the difference between what I feel deep down and what is a thin outer casing. That's what I think this song is about.
    I love the lyrics, and it's got a really nice tune, but to be honest I like most of his other stuff a lot better.
