lyrics

Did you even know?
What that smirk on the sidewalk said
Then you pretend the change in your pocket
Was a sock filled head

You grow your own organics
For your sisters kids
Constantly climbing the tea tree
You'll have on display at Christmas

Do you have a spiritual leader?
Do you even know what that tattoo means?
Covered in Chinese cursive
From your ankles to your knees

You're giving therapy
But what you tell they don't know at all
Who knew you invested the money
Into thickening the wall

And then you have to think, "Let's face it
You don't know what you've got,
Just bring it back to the basics like
White socks in Birkenstocks."

So she says that she loves him
But she doesn't like what he bought
His hair's too long, his arms are too short
And he smokes too much pot

We all know what the right thing to do is
No need to ask a pharmacist
Set the table and prepare yourself
A complete and nutritious breakfast

And then you have to think, "Let's face it
You don't know what you've got,
Just bring it back to the basics like
White socks in Birkenstocks."

When I am looking down at all of this
What of it really matters?
Call me an anthropologist
Questioning our cultures' patterns
