(ooh)
weaken knee joints,
stomach flutters,
shakin’ elbows
still demand
that i ask you
for an answer
to the question
here at hand.

why did he reach out to you just now
touch your hand and say goodbye?

you can hear him
breathin’ heavy
with a sound so
physical.
in his blue jeans
he’s bow-legged
and he’s stupid
like a bull.

why did he reach out to you just now?
touch your hand and say goodbye.

why did he reach out to you just now
touch your hand and say goodbye?
how’s the man supposed to stand up so tall
when he feels that he could die?

can you hear him?
can you hear him?
can you hear him?
can you hear him?
can you hear him?
can you hear him?
oooh hoah hoah

    General CommentThe other guy is probably more "manly" in appearance than Rivers, so when he sees him going up to his girl, he's thinking "what the f@ck is going on?" but is also feeling a little inferior. So he says that stuff about the other guy looking big and stupid as a defense mechanism.

    General Commentwow i can't believe only a couple people have commented on this song...it's definitely one of the best lyrically post-pinkerton...i absolutely LOVE the chorus:
    why did he reach out to you just now
    touch your hand and say goodbye?
    how’s the man supposed to stand up so tall
    when he feels that he could die?

    what an amazing song and definitely goes in a bold new direction musically for the weez
