About Your Talk

Your words come easy
But you make it so hard
To believe the stories
You turn into art
You get so tangled I your twisted plots
Your motor's always running
And you just can't stop

There's always someone
You want to impress
You think if it's worked once
You've cast your nets
And the ones your thought were fools
Are lining up
Even your entourage
Has had enough

Everybody's talking' about your talk
And the way you act like it's not your fault
The way you rattle like a big dumb doll
Everybody's talking about your talk

I used to laugh at it
Like it was a bad joke
But it kept getting worse
Every word was an ego stroke
Now you're so puffed up
With your own deceit
People avoid you just for relief

Everybody's talking' about your talk
And the way you act like it's not your fault
The way you rattle like a big dumb doll
Everybody's talking about your talk
