lyrics

so i’ve noticed that you’re talking like you know something
like i could learn a thing or two from you
and i’m happy to listen
i’m prepared to be enlightened
always in the mood for a little truth

but the words you say
they don’t resonate
like smoke rings in the night they fly away

so i’ve noticed that you’re pleased by your own expertise
like it’s my privilege to be sitting here with you
and i wonder what it would take
to make you stop and take a break
to make you see what you’re putting people through

cause the words you say
they don’t resonate
like smoke rings in the night they fly away

and while you’ve won some kind of battle
brother, you’re losing this fight
taking hits off your bible
getting high on being right

have you noticed that i agree
or are you too busy
to recognize the brother in front of you?
guess i’ll sit here and i’ll wait
for you to pass that joint my way
something i’m somehow sure you ain’t gonna do

cause the words you say
they don’t resonate
like smoke rings in the night they fly away

and while you’ve won some kind of battle
brother, you’re losing this fight
taking hits off your bible
getting high on being right

and the words you say
they don’t resonate
like smoke rings in the night they fly away

like smoke rings in the night they fly away
