Get the Measure

Appearance
can be deceptive
if you're not very bright
and not very perceptive
I am the fool
at least in your eyes
But guess who's fooling who
and who'll get a surprise

Surely you sense that I
can see it coming?
It can't be hard to slip a shot
you spot from sixteen miles away

Oh, get the measure
It's quite apparent you're so transparent
even that glass sits
and shakes its head at you
Oh, get the measure
It's quite apparent you're so transparent
even perspex
playfully pulls a face at you

Appearance
can be confusing
if your antenna is
a tool you're just not using
I am the fool
you've marked and carded
It's clear as a bell
you think that I'm retarded

Surely you know
my nose can trace the scent?
And now that device that you sent
went to that wrong address I gave you

Oh, get the measure
It's quite apparent you're so transparent
even that glass sits
and shakes its head at you
Oh, get the measure
It's quite apparent you're so transparent
even perspex
playfully pulls a face at you

It's enough to make you wish
that you were blonde in mind
but nowhere else - hey
that way no-one would ever talk to you
It's enough to make you wish
that you were mute, blind
dumb and deaf - hey
that way nothing would ever happen around you

Appearance
can be misleading
That smiling face
will leave you cut and bleeding
I am the fool
you think that you know
But I know different, so
c'mere, meet my elbow

Surely you know
that it's no magic trick?
Since your illusion doesn't stick
and what's up your sleeve is no ace

Oh, get the measure
It's quite apparent you're so transparent
even that glass sits
and shakes its head at you
Oh, get the measure
It's quite apparent you're so transparent
even perspex
playfully pulls a face at you

It's only paranoia if it's not true
It's only paranoia if it's not true
It's only paranoia if it's not true
It's only paranoia if it's not true
