Structure + Lyrics 

Intro 

Verse 

Its how the hustle goes, see what the jukebox knows. 
Put my last quarter on, I play "Authority Song." 

Pre-Chorus 

Honesty or mystery? 
Tell me Im not scared anymore. 
I got no secret purpose, I dont seem obvious do I? 

Chorus 

I dont seem obvious do I? 

Verse 

The DJ never has it, J A M C Automatic. 
If those were Roy's headphones, you bet he'd play "What Goes On". 

Pre-Chorus 

Honesty or mystery? 
Tell me Im not scared anymore. 
I got no secret purpose, I dont seem obvious do I? 

Chorus 

I dont seem obvious do I? 

Bridge 

Oh I'm here, that means something doesn't it? 
Oh wont you dance with me a little bit? 
Oh you dont notice, I guess the musics too loud. 

Verse 

Its how the hustle goes, see what the jukebox knows. 
Put my last quarter on, I play "Authority Song". 

Pre-Chorus 

Honesty or mystery? 
Tell me Im not scared anymore. 
Say anything you want already IÕm not scared anymore. 
Honesty or mystery? 
Want something else? 
Just tell me Im not scared anymore. 
I got no secret purpose, I dont seem obvious do I? 

Chorus 

I dont seem obvious do I?
