Adjectives on the typewriter
He moves his words like a prize fighter
The frenzied pace of the mind inside the cell

The man on the street might just as well be
The man on the street might just as well
The man on the street might just as well be

Outside, outside the world
Out there you don't hear the echos and calls
But the steel eye,
Tight jaw
Say it all
Say it all

But the white paint,
Plastic saints
Say it all
Say it all
Say it all

Say it all,
Say it all,
Say it all,
Say it all,
Say it all,
Say somebody,
Has got to say it all
Somebody
Has got to say it all

I'm so nervous
I'm so tense
My heart can't forget about this self defense
The air is so hot
And my breath comes fast
I thumb the cool blade but I know this can't last

I thumb the cool blade but I know this can't last

Outside, outside the world
Out there you don't hear the echos and calls
But the steel eye,
Tight jaw
Say it all
Say it all

But the white paint,
Plastic saints
Say it all
Say it all
Say it all

Say it all,
Say it all,
Say it all,
Say it all,
Say it all,
Say somebody,
Has got to say it all
Somebody
Has got to say it all

Yeah, adjectives on the typewriter
He moves his words like a prize fighter
The frenzied pace of the mind inside the cell

The man on the street might just as well be
The man on the street might just as well
The man on the street might just as well be

    General CommentYeah, but movies are infamous for taking complex songs and using them in the movie either for the sound of it or for the lyrics in the shallowest sense (think someone using Stairway to Heaven in a movie about a guy walking up stairs towards heaven).

    Anyway, I don't know what this song is about, but it's one of my absolute favorite Cake songs.
