Am I Alone?

This song is by Martin Gordon.

Am I alone and unobserved? I am
Then let me own
I'm an aesthetic sham

This air severe is but a mere veneer
This cynic smile is but a wile of guile
This costume chaste is
But good taste misplaced

Let me confess
A languid love for lilies does not blight me
Lank limbs and haggard cheeks do not delight me
I do not care for lefty greens by any means
I do not long for all one sees that's Japanese

I am not fond of uttering platitudes
In stained-glass attitudes
In short, my sensibility's affectation
Born of a morbid love of admiration
