No Depth That's Meant


Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Doing and saying things just to be seen.
And detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Only believed to be an ego 'feign'.
With a doing and saying things just to be seen.
Full of conceit from their head to their feet,
And a superficial, artificial life conceived.


Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Doing and saying things just to be seen.
And only believed to be an ego 'feign'.

To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

To have no depth that's meant.
Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
Detected and suspected,
To have no depth that's meant.
And substance isn't there at all,
That has a real content.

Having no..
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.

Having no...
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.

Having no...
Depth that's meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.
Having no real depth that is meant.
Having no...
Depth that's meant.

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
