"What's The Word" as written by and Cain/murray/tapper....
What's the point of making all this noise
If nothing's ever getting heard?
I'm saving up my voice now
What's the word? Yeah
What's the word? Yeah
What's the word?

Instead of throwing up your hands
Why don't you tell me what you're trying to tell me?
I'm sick of breaking all these plans
Now it's starting to kill me
Man, it's starting to kill

I'm about as close to making sense
As I am ever going to get
Is that how quickly I'd be gone?

And just read my lips
They're pretty loose
They're pretty loose
They're pretty loose

But I can't ever say
Who's kidding who?
Who's kidding who?
Who's kidding who?

Instead of throwing up your hands
Why don't you tell me what you're trying to tell me?
I'm sick of breaking all these plans
Now it's starting to kill me
Man, it's starting to kill

I'm about as close to making sense
As I am ever going to get
Is that how quickly I'd be gone?

Save your breath
I already knew
I already knew
I already knew

But I can't say
Who's kidding who?
Who's kidding who?
Who's kidding who?

Instead of throwing up your hands
Why don't you tell me what you're trying to tell me?
I'm sick of breaking all these plans
Now it's starting to kill me
Man, it's starting to kill

I'm about as close to making sense
As I am ever going to get
Is that how quickly I'd be gone?

    General CommentI think this sng's got to do with a girl keith likes. he's been waiting for he to give him some sort of sign on whether or not he's got a shot, but she won't say anything, he won't give her a word.
    He's sick of waiting and waiting for a reply, he's been breaking plans and whatnot, waiting for her to say something, but she won't talk.
    I think, he maybe gives up at the end? Or, just says something like , "Save your breath, I already know what you're trying to say. yeah, who was I kidding? you don't want anything to do with me."
    but then, changes his mind? "just tell me already!"
