The Lyrics

You are looking for some wisdom
Seeking solutions
You can believe in
You're struggling, hurting,
Watching storm clouds
On the horizon
Scares you to see them
Now you want to know
My brilliant advice
The answers to life I discern
So I dig to my depths
But I'm puddle-deep
Ineptly I solve your concerns

Oh, I'll waste precious moments
By dancing around
I know this is the time
This is the time to say
Hollow cliches
That pass as profound
I know this is the time
This is the time to be trite
Time to be trite

When you feel that sense of panic
Hold up your head
Pick up the pieces
'Cause life's not always as you planned it
Time heals all wounds
All that you need is:
Think outside the box
While raising the bar
The sun will come out once again.

I'll embrace simple jargon
And never expound
I know this is the time
This is the time to be
Mushy and vague
And pseudo-profound
I know this is the time
This is the time to be trite
The time to be trite

You should pull yourself up by your bootstraps
You're second to none
Pushing the envelope now
Walking the talk
Life's just begun

And so face all the music
With silver-lined clouds
Because this is the time
This is the time to be
Loosed from your chains
With hand to the plow
Because this is the time
This is the time to be trite
Be trite
It's all fun and games
Till an eye is put out
I know this is the time
This is the time to be trite
This is the time to be trite
Trite
Time to be trite
Cuts like a knife
