I can feel the dawn, I can feel the earth
I can feel the living
All around, round, round, round
All around, round, round, round

I could choose a path, I could choose the word
I can start the healing, bring it
Now now now now
Bring it now, now, now

Whispered songs inside the wind
Breathing in forgiveness
Like vibrations with no end
Feel the planet humming
What is clear far from the noise
Get swallowed whole

I can feel the sun, I can see the sound
I can set myself right hear and
Drown, drown, drown, drown
Drown, drown, drown

I can feel the rush, I could clear the clouds
I could set the needle spinning
Loud, loud, loud, loud
Loud, loud, loud, loud

I can hear the crash, I can feel the pound
I can feel the current pulling
Down, down, down, down
Down, down, down, down

Whispered songs inside the wind
Breathing in forgiveness
Like vibrations with no end
Feel the planet humming
What is clear far from the noise
Get swallowed whole

With no quiet to be found, spirit lifted off the ground
And what lies beyond the grave
Might be welcomed change and will come, come what may
With no rest in peace, until that day, yeah

I can choose the path, I can choose the word
I can start the healing, bring it
Now, now, now, now
Now, now, now, now

I could be the sun, I could be the sound
I could set myself right hear and
Drown drown drown drown
Drown drown drown drown

Whispered songs inside the wind,
Breathing in forgiveness
And the chapter I’ve not read
Turn the page

    General CommentThis song is about today's world where we are inundated with information and heavily biased messages in the media.

    The information overload of today can swallow us whole if we allow.

    --the story itself often gets swallowed whole in the flood of reporting/blogging/tweeting.

    -One has to get "far from the noise" to even find what the original story is.

    --Eddie's references to drowning, being pulled down, and loud noises (repetitiously at that) reinforce the message of too many conflicting reports on a singular story in "mainstream" media today.

    -Also there are references to our control of what messages we receive, hence "I can choose the path; I could choose the word..." However, choose the message we WANT to be true, not necessarily the one that IS true.

    -With social media and the 24 hour news cycle, there is no "quiet to be found" anywhere and our spirit can be sucked into the contrived debate.

    --Once the story has been blurred beyond repair, a network or broadcaster will apologize and no one will remember it in the long run. That apology is like a "song whispered in the wind" and no one can hear it and we've turned the page to the next story.
