The Lyrics

We all understand the concept of Obfuscating Stupidity, that being, playing dumb. What if there's another layer deeper than that, though?
I'm a, I'm a
I'm a schemer

I am not a moron, not reality
The dumber you look now, the more intentional things seem
May sound a bit backwards, it's not, I swear that it's not
I come off as a big clown to make it look like I have a plot

May look like I don't know what I'm doin'
Here's the truth: I don't know what I'm doin'
Not to the point that I'm that stupid, not that stupid
Have things in hand, kind of, well, things won't get crazy
Put your trust in me, somehow don't hate me
Convinced that my clown acts hide the real me: I'm a schemer
They've all heard of the trope 'bout the eejit
Who's smarter than their surface appearance
They all think that's me, they can see it, all can see it
A layered act, I wish I could fix things quickly
Be the grand chessmaster that they've pegged me
But the truth deep down: I'm flailin' badly, I'm no schemer

Am I a schemer?
No, I'm no schemer

Never really expected to sit in this seat
My campaign was all sound, no, zero substance to be seen
I guess the people want someone unlike the old ones
Be careful what you wish now because otherwise you'll get it wrong

Sweat continues to flow, not believin'
That nobody knows I'm not decievin'
"Watch him wheel and deal, he's concealin', big concealin'"
The only obfuscation that's comin' from me
Is exaggeration of my dumb beats
Rilin' up the crowd until they believe I'm a schemer
All that I really know about schemin'
Is to choose underlings that can reason
See? I'm not like all those paste eatin', pasty eatin'
I look like somebody that cannot be trusted
Which looks like someone who plans for longness
Which hides the truth down, that word was nonsense, I'm no schemer

Am I a schemer?
No, I'm no schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer
Am I a schemer? No way, I'm not a schemer

I hate to do this, but it's the perfect quote for this sort of thing: “It is often useful to give the slight impression that you are deliberately pretending not to know what’s going on – because the reality may be that you don’t know what’s going on, but people won’t be able to tell the difference.” - Boris Johnson
