lyrics

The question now has been lost somehow
But he still wants to talk
About the work that he does where he stands
Watching everyone walk.
Enigmatic or lunatic act,
Like a psychotic star—
Should've said, 'You mind taking me home in your
Big yellow car?'

Seen it all says it all,
Says he's seen, seen it all
Where he stands.

Mr. Smooth has the same attitude—
Always emptying out.
When he starts he only stops when he's lost
What he's talking about.
He tells all of his sorcerer's tricks to the
Ignorant crowd.
I should've said, 'Could you please disappear?'
I should've thought it out loud.

Seen it all says it all,
Says he's seen, seen it all,
When he's lost.

All they ever want is to be misunderstood,
And all they ever do is more harm than good
To everything they touch and all they've spoken for,
Cause all they ever see is themselves and nothing more.
