What's That About


The unaccepting of that which today exists.
What's that about?
What's 'that' about.

To make a joke at other folks and their blemishes.
What's that about?
What's 'that' about.

Looking down their noses as if overdosed,
With a presence and a life...
Everybody wants and likes,
But...
What's that about?
What's 'that' about.

People are sick.
People who think they are the chips and the dip.
People are sick.
And full of it.
And many people think only their rights exist,
But...
What's that about?
What's 'that' about.

People are sick.
People who think they are the chips and the dip.
People are sick.
And,
Full of it.
And many people think only their rights exist,
But...
What's that about?
What's 'that' about.

The unaccepting of that which today exists.
What's that about?
What's 'that' about.

To make a joke at other folks and their blemishes.
What's that about?
What's 'that' about.

People are sick.
People are sick.
To make a joke at other folks and their blemishes.
People are sick.
People are sick.
And many people think only their rights exist,
But...
What's that about?
But...
What's 'that' about.
People are sick.
People are sick.
And many people can't accept the doing they did,
With refusing of an ignorance that they've implemented.

What's that about?
But...
What's 'that' about.
But...
What's that about?
But...
What's 'that' about.
