We were visiting friends and saying hello
Then getting stoned and not saying much
Watching the people on TV who talk faster than us
I’m still holding the cup
Ignoring the sound of the ice cream truck
Here stands danger he____?
She had visiting moods
What it wants to be

We were visiting friends
Wanted words too runny___?

I heard a bird in the windowpane
You rolled up your grass
____?
But the comfort to know what visiting is
____?
Wanting to be friends
The way that they smell
The light hits them differently

The sheets they get cold
The windows are cracked
Do you recognize the room
The posters that fill it
all the — spread around
We were visiting mine
(Repeat)

    General CommentSo the lyrics posted here seem incorrect for the most part :\. The middle is very unclear(others have any ideas?), but i believe the end is mostly correct.

    Visiting Friends:

    "We were visiting friends and saying hello
    Then getting stoned and not saying much
    Watching the people on TV who talk faster than us
    I'm still holding the cup
    Ignoring the sound of the ice cream truck
    (?)
    She had visiting moods
    What it wants to be

    We were visiting friends
    (?) too (muddy)
    (?) got stuck
    I walked a (?)
    (?)
    I heard a bird in the windowpane
    You rolled up your grass
    (?)
    But the cop couldn't tell

    But the comfort to know what visiting is
    We're visiting beds
    Marking the difference
    In the way that they smell
    The light hits them differently
    The sheets do get cold
    The windows are cracked
    Do you recognize the room,
    The posters that tilt,
    Furniture spread around

    We were visiting mine"

    Also, i believe by "visiting friends" he is speaking of a relationship in which the lover comes and goes...Visiting friends as in a friend who only visits, never staying to establish anything worthwhile. Just an idea, rereading the partial lyrics with that in mind really helped me at least *feel* like i understand the song/meaning, but to each his own :)

    General Commentcrazy song. what effects are being used for the voice modification, does anyone known?

    "We were visiting friends and saying hello
    Then getting stoned and not saying much"

    This reminds me of break from college. I feel like a lot of it I've just spent blazing but there's a lot more to this song

    General CommentSounds like the deep voice in the background is repeating "That's a pretty rabbit."

    MemoryThis reminds me of being a jolly sort of cold with friends in a house. That moment when you look out the window after a sip of beer to the snow outside. A moment of recognition of the snow as background and you are there with friends.
