I find myself staring at the shelf
With a hundred boxes and I need some help
They all look the same and each seem to claim
That they’re better than the other one

And on second thought I don’t
Need another answer to a phony problem
‘Cause everywhere I go, everything I see
Everything is sold to me

“It's made just for you”
Now I hope you don’t think that’s true
It's made from the man with the cash in hand
For you to buy into

And when it breaks
However long that may take
It won’t be long before the next comes along
And sell a new mistake

‘Cause if you want it then, they’ll sell it you
In a box so beautiful it blinds your point of view
Don’t buy it then, they’ll wrap it up again
Twice the price for bad advice
As long as you keep buyin'

It's not what you need
It's how you fuel the want you feed
Mr. Follow often holds the hands of Ms. Lead (mislead)

It's something new
Or becoming long overdue
Simon says it's not what it is man
It's how it's sold to you
‘Cause if you want it then, they’ll sell it you
In a box so beautiful it blinds your point of view
Don’t buy it then, they’ll wrap it up again
Twice the price for bad advice
As long as you keep buyin'

If you want it then, you're sold before you even know it begins
It doesn’t matter even

    General Commentthis is all about how people will tell you what you want to hear. they will wrap up the box of thingd you want ot hear so beautifuly the way you want it that you dont even realize they are completely fooling you. and when you find out theyve been deceiving, they will go onto either someone else and pull the same thing or they will re-convince you of their lies.
