Very Ape Lyrics

I am buried up to my neck in
Contradictionary flies
I take pride as the king of illiterature
I'm very ape and very nice

If you ever need anything please don't
Hesitate to ask someone else first
I'm too busy acting like I'm not naive

    Acho que a música fala de pessoas antiguadas, ou pessoas mais velhas que acreditam que por ter nascido primeiro, sabe mais que todos. Que não participa, não ajuda e não apredende porque acha que já sabe demais. Que já fez demais para os outros.
    I'm too busy acting like I'm not naive: é mais importante "parecer" que se sabe, do que "saber" algo de verdade. Por outro lado, sou menos descolado e menos evoluído do que pareço.

    I think the song is about old people, or older people who believe they are smarter than everyone else. The song is about people who don't participate, don't help and don't learn new things because they think they already know too much. Who has already done too much for others.
    I'm too busy acting like I'm not naive: it's more important to "look" like you know than to "know" something for real. On the other hand, I'm less cool and less evolved than I look.

    The song is insulting the guys that go to the gym.
