Try to look wise
Philosophical words
It's all a disguise
To boost your self worth

Must speak above
The ones that you mock
They converse and express
By using straight talk

So deep, know everything
What you don't know you'll make up
Go impress the masses
I think it's time you wake up

Make the stream cloudy
With the mud from beneath
Stir up the waters
To make them look deep

The more shallow they are
The easier disturbed
Try to conceal your depth
With your newest big words

So deep, know everything
What you don't know you'll make up
Go impress the masses
I think it's time you wake up

You're seeing you
As being so wise
As people look up
Adoration filled eyes

You got so caught up
It's no longer a game
It's a pyramid plan
In building your name

So deep, know everything
What you don't know you'll make up
Go impress the masses
Wake up

You don't impress me
Mr. Philosophy
You don't impress me
Mr. Philosophy
You don't impress me

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.
