Got nothing left but it ain't bringin' me down
I'm just gonna follow the sound

And the sound is pleasing
When it sounds like it is breathing
There's no one around
To hear the notes falling down
Nobody seems to care
The feeling isn't there
Like it was all a bad dream
Now we're looking everywhere

You keep searching
You keep on searching
(You keep on flirting with it now)

Got nothing left but it ain't bringin' me down
I'm just gonna follow the sound

That ringing in my ears
Oh whats that sound
It's the cold death knell
Of the big ships bell
See the strings unwound
See them lying on the ground
Can't pick up your guitar
Cause you've forgotten the sound

We'll keep searching
Keep on searching
(You're flirting with it now..)

Got nothing left but it ain't bringin' me down
I'm just gonna follow the sound

    General CommentIt sounds like he is saying "you're flirting with it now" after "you keep on searching."
    Is that just me?

    General CommentI always took 'The Sound' to be like...the music in your head, that you play or something. So even when things suck a lot, it keeps him up. So when he's forgotten the sound, his guitar is messed up. Also, when he's 'flirting with it', it's like he's on the verge of making a great song.
