The term ‘pseudo’ means ‘false’ or ‘pretend.’ Pseudo-psychology, therefore, refers to a psychological practice that is false or unfounded.
I look at you, I know what you’re thinking
I know what’s been bouncing around your head
You look around, you see your life shrinking
You wish you were more like me instead
I practice the art of pseudo psychology
I make it up as I go along
Rest assured, I’m right cause I wanna be
Even if experts say that I’m wrong, I’m never wrong
No need to tell me, you’re in a bad place
I’ll do the talking if you don’t mind
My life is perfect and chock full of grace
While you seem to founder and run around blind
Pseudo Psychology what I say is true
Pseudo Psychology I’ll prove it to you
