This little guy writes mysteries under the name of J.D. McGregor.


Pretending to care, vacant stare, an empty suit
Full of empty air
Pretending I’m there when I’m a million miles away
Stuck in a day-dream, just pretending to care

Floating through space
Focused on a point behind your face
A million miles away
Just enjoying a daydream

Pretending to care while thinking of a joke I heard last night
Watching TV shows
Pretending I’m there, curling my lips into a smile
I can hold it awhile, I am pretending to care

You might think this act is rude
But fake news sells much better than the truth
So next time you want to know
What I’m thinking when I’m thinking it
Just think it through
