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 prescription
On your notebook pad
For five different ailments
Didn't know I had
Listen you don't know
You don't know my mind
Listen you don't know
You don't know my mind
You thought the core was the rind

I tell you a story
'Bout what happened today
Nothing profound
Just something to say
And you write a prescription
On your notebook pad
For five different ailments
Didn't know I had
Listen you don't know
You don't know my mind
Listen you don't know
You don't know my mind
You thought the core was the rind

    General CommentFor Mr. Bird, this is a pretty straightforward song. It's about a man who feels misunderstood and generally underestimated by someone. It fits in with the previous track on this album, "Two-Way Action", in that his intellectual depth is explained as being at odds with the rest of the world. The guitars are killer on this track and it is a beautifully simple gem on this lyrically complex record.
