lyrics

On a whisper

Sitting on a whisper till the storm subsides
There’s a dank soggy feeling and it sticks to your insides
Thought you were done, but you knew you were wrong
‘Cause you never really like to hold still for too long
Saw you thinking to your self it would be quite swell
If you could buy a little piece of happiness in a nut shell
Checking all their pockets, everyone would hoot and holler
You could get them at the market and they’d only cost a dollar

Go back just a minute
I didn’t understand a word you said
I think you’ve been keeping your mind in our pocket
Instead of in your head
Now slow down just a little
I think we’ve been wasting all of our time
Trying too hard not to fall behind

And you’ve got this strange sort of itch on your brain
Like it’s drying in the corner after left in the rain
I know it’s hard to grasp
That you’re not something special
And you’ve got this strange sort of churning in your gut
Like a piece of your spirit fell out of your butt
Yes, I know it’s hard to grasp
That you’re not something special
And it’s a strange thought to realize the strife
Of trying to organize the details of your life
‘Cause there’s not a hole in which you can crawl
To get to the bottom of it all
And if I could go on an expedition
To try and diagnose our peculiar condition
I think our results would leave us playfully amused
And reveal that we’re just chronically confused
And I don’t have a destination
And I don’t really care
And I don’t have a proposition
On when I’ll be getting there
And if you frown at what I do
Well I could criticize you too
But nothing would change a thing
Now go back just a minute
I don’t think you’ve been trying your very best
I think you’ve been keeping your heart in your wallet
Instead of in your chest
Now slow down just a little
I think we’ve been wasting all of our time
Trying too hard
Not to fall behind
