Popular Notions

lyrics

Billy the banker spends his Sundays on his knees
Helps him release the burden of the community trust
When something goes wrong he prays but doesn't know what it means
Searching for peace of mind no matter what the cost...
When Billy's lost, he goes for his Pentacost...

Because he's high on popular notions
If everyone else understands, you don't need a foggy notion
Makes it easier to be a man

Rudy the writer cranks out his opinion page
Lucky he doesn't have to think about what he thinks
Money, machines, and might send him into fits of rage
And every new social program just needs to flatten kinks...
Big business stinks... well, that's what he thinks

Because he's high on popular notions
If everyone else understands, you don't need a foggy notion
Makes it easier to be a man

Susie the actress wears a gold heart on her sleeve
Stumping for candidates who won't let the ship go down
Bares herself naked everywhere but on the screen
Charity suits her fine if they've got a lecturn she can pound...
If it gets her around as the best head in town...

Because she's high on popular notions
If everyone else understands, you don't need a foggy notion
Makes it easier to make a stand

Make a stand.
