Can you hear me Joe?
Wake up how many fingers?
How can i be sure that you're still breathing?
Stay with me...

Sweating in the cold,
your face is as white as the sheet on the bed
inside your head that you can feel on your cheek

And i know, that this isn't over, not at all

Ink pours from my fingers like a bursting dam
Stay awake, stay awake (Woah)
Stake awake, stay awake (Wooooah)
And washes out my words from every strain of hair
Stay awake, stay awake (Woah)
Stake awake, stay awake (Wooooah)

Words were once so clear
but now they're knotting
And i know i'll stop the clotting
If i finish this chorus.
Can you feel the consonants unknotting?
And the vowels at last are flocking
To my bridge and my verse

Can you hear me Joe?
Wake up, your body lingers
Can you hear my voice above the static?
Stay with me.....
Sweating more and more
My fingers ache and yearn for the sand
to swallow both of us and bring you safely back to my hands
But i know, that this isn't over,
not at all

Upon my head i sit cross-legged and uptight
Stay awake, stay awake (Woah)
Stay awake, stay awake (Wooooah)
Rocking back and forth bemused by fireflies
Stay awake, stay awake (Woah)
Stay awake, stay awake (Wooooah)

Words were once so clear
but now they're knotting
And i know i'll stop the clotting
If i finish this chorus.
Can you feel the consonants unknotting?
And the vowels at last are flocking
To my bridge and my verse

When i checked out sobriety (i checked into this)
I checked out my mindset (and checked into bliss)
When i checked out sobriety (i checked into this)
I checked out my mindset (and checked into bliss)

Words were once so clear but now they're knotting
and i know i'll stop the clotting
if i finish this chorus....

Words were once so clear
but now they're knotting
And i know i'll stop the clotting
If i finish this chorus.
Can you feel the consonants unknotting?
And the vowels at last are flocking
To my bridge and my verse

Can you hear me Joe?

    General CommentLove this song. I think it's about a friend in trouble and keeping him awake, or perhaps that's too obvious. Great sound and lyrics though. I prefer it to every other song they've done by a lot.

    General CommentCome to think about it, it sounds more like a bad drug trip that his friend had when he was with him and he wrote a song about it.
