lyrics

I'm trying to find reason, I'm trying to find rhyme
I'm caught in a blitz of emotion
So I question the fools and still can't understand the commotion
I was only a dot on the face of the wind
I shuffled from nothing to nowhere
In the blink of an eye I pretended to willingly go there

Oh brother what can we say?
Who would listen to us anyway?
First they say jump then they tell you just how high
A blank page like a mid-day shadow
Stealing lyrics from the old folks disco
First they say jump then they tell you just how high

So it's smiles when delivered and glasses will chink
And everyone's happy at their end
But the messengers message is messed with and home with the old trend
And the earth spilled my drink I was using as ink
To write about reasons and care frees
When the gusto of chance sent me out with the trash and the fairies

Oh brother what can we say?
Who would listen to us anyway?
First they say jump then they tell you just how high
A blank page like a mid-day shadow
Stealing lyrics from the old folks disco
First they say jump then they tell you just how high
