No Depth That's Meant


Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Doing and saying things just to be seen.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
With a doing and saying things just to be seen.
Full of conceit from their head to their feet,
And a superficial, artificial life conceived.

Having no..
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.

Having no real depth that is meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.
