(All heed, hear ye, all heed, hear ye)
I’ve got something to say…

In the breeding ground for the mentally sound
Where they never quite learn how to dumb themselves down
To describe it in a more attractive way
Well they’re making a point and it’s taking them days

They’re not the first to know

Their aim in life is to be a patron of Joyce
With an air of reluctance their topic of choice
Talking tirelessly lest they’re asked the solution
Picking out quotes they think won’t reveal but conceal them

They’re not the first to know

Not even the second or third
Haven’t you heard
the classic collection on audio tape?
Highbrow tell me - how do you relate?

When Mount Olympus Neo’s discuss poetry in prose
Can distinguish a Sunflower from Van Gough’s
A Talisman sells the virtue of wisdom
For arguments sake they can justify their existence

They’re not the first to know

For the avoidance of being ignorant
Why don’t you call your spade an implement
If you’d like to say a lot more than what you know
Chances are you’ve gained an opinion lost a mind of your own

You’re not the first to know

You’ve mastered the art of critique
Exuding mystique
Burning up brightly in the midst of the clique
Highbrow tell me please elaborate

(All heed, hear ye, all heed, hear ye)
I’ve got nothing to say…

When I left the cave I came back mute
My platonic friend said I was not astute

He said…that I was an abstract talker.
