You claim to know authenticity
You claim to live a life of simplicity
The only world that you know is your own
The things you've seen but those that you've shown

You've been to classes, been taught by the best
Your steel-rimmed glasses, they shine with the rest
Advice given but never received
Why should you bother you know all that you need

Please won't you tell us another story today?

You trim your hedges, your driveway is paved
You send your flowers to your mom-in-law's grave
You claim your words and deeds have nothing to hide
I must agree they've shown me all of your sides

We can play the T-shirt game
You choose a slogan, and I'll choose a name
A new concept's not hard to create
As long as everyone participates, so

You call me brother, and I'll call you man
A white-tooth smile and a shake of the hand
No need for contracts; we own this small town
You thank the waitress and I'll buy the next round
