do you believe that you belong to someone
i can't believe that i belong to no one

do you believe that you belong to someone
i can't believe that i belong to no one
i can't believe that i belong to no one

la la la
we go la la la
we go la la la

do you believe that you belong to somewhere
well i can't believe that i belong to nowhere

i can't believe that i belong to nothing

do you see three colours
do you see black
do you see blood
do you see blue

    General CommentThese are the lyrics of the Daytrotter Session, transcribed to the best of my ability:

    Do you believe that you belong to something?
    I can’t believe that I belong to nothing.

    Do you believe that you belong to somewhere?
    I can’t believe that I belong to nowhere,
    And I can’t believe that I belong to nowhere.

    You go la, la, la.
    I go la, la, la.

    Oh, oh, oh, oh!

    Do you believe that you belong to someone?
    I can’t believe that I belong to no one.

    And I can’t believe that I belong to no one.

    Do you see three colors?
    Do you see black?
    Do you see blonde?
    Do you see blue?
    Do you see black?
    Do you see blonde?
    Do you see blue?
    Do you see black, black, black, black, black, black blonde and blue?
    Oh, oh!

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh-ho-oh!
    ooooohhhh!
    Oooooooo!

    You say, oh, oh, oh, these cloven hooves.
    Do you see another color, is it red, red, red?
    Do you see another color is it red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red, red?

    You say, oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, oh, oh, this aching head.
    If there are wings at my head then there is wind in my head,
    You can only throw so many stones in a year,
    So I hold so dear, my dear, to all these things that you said to me,
    Oh, You said, “The shape of my hands are like the size of a head,”
    Without opening up your eyes.
    So, I said, “Thanks, oh, for the things that you said to me.”

    You take a little wind, the wind in my ears, oh,
    You take the little things, the things in my toes,
    You gather up my sins, and you, you let them go airborne
    You take a little wind, the wind at my ears, oh
    I said, “Well, you should hear the wind at my window.”
    You say, “okay, okay, okay, okay, okay”
    I said, “Well, you should hear the wind at my window.”
    You say, “okay, okay, okay, okay, okay”
    I said, “Well, you should hear the wind at my window.”
    I said, “Well, you should hear the wind at my window.”
    I said, “Well, you should hear the wind at my window,
    oh. You should hear the wind at my window.”
    Go, oh, oh, oh, oh etc. Whoa, oh, Whoa, oh etc.

    General CommentFirst two lines are "something" and "nothing."

    Great tune.

    General CommentI'm never sure of Spencer's religious beliefs but this song could have religious overtones.

    "Do you believe you belong to someone?"
    Need I say more?

    General CommentThanks for posting the lyrics from the Daytrotter Session! It's a fantastic version. (Also I don't think I've ever tried interpreting any Krug song ever; now is probably not the time to start.)
