lyrics

Well there's a bunch of clothes walking around here today/
Just a bunch of clothes with nothing to say
I took a mini skirt out on a date/
But we didnt relate/ I guess there wasn't much to say

And I can see pants and shirts and hats and shoes/
And I even snuck me a peek at those high heeled boots/
And I've counted countless empty suits/
Well how bout you? Are you an empty suit too?

You have a different face/ But you wear the same clothing
You have a different name/ But you wear the same shoes
So keep me away from that fancy clothing/ Cause I cant afford to be an empty suit

If you could step into my shoes friend surely you'd understand/
It takes a lot more then clothes to make a good man
Yet you can't be going around not wearing pants/
I mean whats up with that? Who said we all gotta wear pants man?

You have a different face/ But you wear the same clothing
You have a different name/ But you wear the same shoes
So keep me away from that fancy clothing/ Cause I cant afford to be an empty suit

Well the moral of the story the lesson here my friends/
Is we live in a primarily visual world that don't make a lot of sense
So don't be deceived by all the things you see
Remember its just a bunch of clothes walking down the street
