it is a materialistic, hedonistic world that we live in
where you are deemed cool by the money in your wallet
by the clothes you wear and the places you hang out
by the company you the neighborhood you live in
you try REAL hard putting up appearances, you live your life FAKE
maintaining an expensive lifestyle…trying to keep up with the Jones’
constantly in rent arrears, lacking bus fare, can’t pay the bills
but must be seen on the party scene, doing anything to fit in
dancing…not because you enjoy the music
but really out of the need to be seen
passing judgment on others yet you got your own flaws
with your many imperfections you think you are the epitome of perfection
you are not the sun, the world doesn’t revolve around you
you see unlike the sun you do not radiate warmth and light
you are cold and dark to those you say are not in your class
you’ve got class, acting class, where they teach you how to fake it
to put appearances, be pretentious, insincere, dishonest
take a long hard look at yourself…look at what you’ve become
manipulative, cold hearted, self centered
maybe if you humbled yourself,swallowed your pride
and got rid of your air of self importance and arrogance
got to see the world through the eyes of others
you would really say how you feel…
you would be open about your situation
you wouldn’t go through the motions
you wouldn’t be a REAL FAKE..
