When you say things,
you speak your mind
you speak your mind
when you say things

When you don't say things
you should think of one
there are never two
how could there ever be anything more than just you?

then we all scream Daddy together!

When i say things
I should maybe not
I should maybe shut
my mainframe scum-system of nervousness off

When i don't say things
I heave and ho
I to and fro
I never float gently, i never merrily row

And you should not say nice things
If you don't mean them
and you should not say mean things
At all

Don't say nice things
Don't say mean things
Leaving me speechless again
Leaving me speechless again
Leaving me speechless again
Leaving... me... speechless... again...

Introverted, I am
Going to hell in a hand-
Basket, jacket colored sand
No shoes

Extrovert that you are
I'll take you further and far
I'll guide you down to the stars
And through

And you should not say nice things
If you don't mean them
and you should not say mean things
At all

Don't say nice things
Don't say mean things
And if you are speechless then
And if you are speechless then
And if you are speechless then

You should never say anything again
You should never say anything again

    General CommentI copied these lyrics directly from Weatherbox's MySpace blog.
    I realize that Brian doesn't actually sing "And we all scream daddy together!" but it made me smile so I kept it. Sue me.

    Anyway... this song is fucking wonderful. I'm unbelievably excited for The Cosmic Drama.
