We can see right through you.
You’re a snake oil salesman.
You make promises that you know you can’t keep.
You say you’ve got our best interests at heart.
But that’s not true.
All you care about is yourself.
Well you can fool some people some of the time.
But you can’t fool us all.
You’re a fraud and a charlatan.
