Tell me your story and I'll pass it along
As a work of fiction, as a work of song

I need some information would you please hold on?
I have an idea, oh god don't be wrong

You can write what you want but I won't let you on
To this stage or this platform from which to speak from

I've got your information right here in front me
But nothing really stood out from what I've seen

If no one reads this but me, does it still count as read?
Does an idea exist if it's just in my head?

I need your information, would you please hold on?
I have an idea, oh god don't be wrong
