Everybody knows about my nudity
And the bankruptcy of our empire
It's tired (so tired)

We've been faking it
We staged this celebration
With style that's historic
Not in fact but in implication
We play a whole elaborate charade
You name it -- it's an outfit

You're content to pretend that you
Don't know I'm naked
