It starts out kinda simple
You're all up in my mental
The stories that you're tellin me
Are beating on my temple
Liar, liar pants on fire
Make my blood pressure go higher
Mr. One- up try to run up
Try to come up
You can't just step up on the scene like a fiend
And be down you need to look around
Talkin this and talkin that
But tell me where's the substance at
It's pure frustration
And endless conversation
Have you heard
Of something that was so absurd
I've learned to care
More about the words than
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you bring me down
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you do you bring me down
This conversation's out of gas it won't last
Talkin out your ass time's movin past so fast
Your self-devoted candy coated, moted
Loaded exploded into nonsense
You're speakin in the past tense
I'm bound to rebound I can't be drowned
By all these clowns tryin to bring me down
You can't jack backgrounds from the lost and found and be down
OPM wears crowns from So-cal to your town world-renowned
And still I have found I care more about the words than how it sounds
Have you heard
Of something that was so absurd
I've learned to care
More about the words than
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you bring me down
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you do you bring me down
Listen what your doin yo it ain't that amusing
You ain't sayin nothing but your mouth keeps on moving
Abusing my ear drums all I see is smackin lips and gums
It's enough to make my brain go numb
From all this jibber mixed with jabber just makes me madder
Please just give me the facts cause nothing else matters
Still the same thing no name chump change
Waiting for the encore such a bore heard it all before
No more playin no more portraying
Please tell me what the hell it is that you're saying
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you bring me down
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you do you bring me down
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you bring me down
How it sounds and I have found
What you do you do you bring me down
