The majority of ears were only being polite 
Couldn't be bothered to disagree 
A social distance set 

By a liking of something hard to forget 
A need to remember and recognize 
And inspiration that over-rides 
Any hesitation or compromise 
Not relying on dubious facts in disguise 
What you eagerly collect 
And subsequently resurrect 
From acquaintances and T.V. set 
Falls on distant ears 

But when you tell it like it is 
From your own ideas and what they give 
We're all involved in the way you live 
And the distance disappears
