"What I Am" as written by Edie Arlisa Brickell, Kenneth Neil Withrow, John Bradley Houser, John Walter Bush and Brandon Aly....
I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean
Philosophy is the talk on a cereal box
Religion is the smile on a dog

I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am
Are you what you are - or what?

I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean
Philosophy is a walk on the slippery rocks
Religion is a light in the fog

I'm not aware of too many things
I know what I know if you know what I mean
Choke me in the shallow water
Before I get too deep

What I am is what I am
Are you what you are - or what?
Don't let me get too deep

    My InterpretationSO this is a very interesting song she is appreciating the simple things in life and how simple things are the most profound in some ways so something like Religion is the smile on a dog will mean that for her something like the smile on a Dog is like a religious experience in that it touches her deeply makes her feel happy sometimes the simple things are the hardest and often times we over think Edie so beautifully captures her simple free spirit and says she doesn't wanna over think ,philosophy is the talk on a cereal box , such things like you're dog having a bowl of cereal walking outside on a wet slippery day give meaning and beauty to a life that is so deep .
