I'm stretching my ears they're open and not withstanding
To rhythmic syncopation, harmonic dissonance
I move to a groove that will never stop swinging
And I sing to a song that never ends
I'm pushing my brain to think a little harder
To learn from the simple and question the complex
If logic and reason are the gods that you follow
Then you'll drown in your soul's emptiness
It's too easy to "be in" with a platform
It's too easy to know what to say
It's harder to sit when everyone else is standing
To shake your head as the world just nods away

I'm raising my voice to shout a little louder
To answer your questions and ease the tension
In my argument arrogance has no friend
And I hate to be cushioned in a fight

It's too easy to "be in" with a hair style
It's to easy to go with the flow
It's hard to see through a haze of popularity
To shake your head as the world just nods away
Fever high, blind man clapper
Flag-waving monkey man
Never hear past own mouth flappin'
All the answers, palm of your hand

Herd mover platform weaver
Change topic, slight of hand
Issue bender, big speech giver
Power tie, and photo tan

Ray: Fashions and fads a fictitious flirtation the foremost foundation to fit in
Brett: Fashions and fads a flirting the foremost foundation fit it
Chris: Fashions fads flirting foremost to fit in
Ray: It's talk at the table the TV and tabloids the telephone trivia and talk show trash
Brett: Talk at the table and tabloids telephone trivia talk show trash
Chris: Talk at the table trivia talk show trash

Sometimes we get caught up in making the right impression
Is the commission really worth the sale that we pitch?
I'm not really big on justifying intentions
If it's good then let it grow
On its own we'll soon be rich

Turning as the world
Turn a turn around turn around turn around
Watch as the world turns around

It's too easy to "be in" on the new wave
It's too easy to know how to play
It's harder to "be in" for the sake of your own being
To shake your head as the world just nods away
