Whole Lotta Nothing

The words fly around the room
Swoop over my head
Why should I listen?

It’s all Sound and Fury
and I know better anyway

The voice goes right through me
I just can’t concentrate
This time is not a good time
But they always have something to say

And I open my mouth
And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out
And I open my mouth
And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out

I’ve every right to shout
A lot to shout about
But nothing ever comes out

Damn, I hate this life
Forgot why I chose it
Too late now
I guess I’ll have to face it

Pedantic, pretentious, oblivious
It’s so hard, so hard
to make it obvious
And why should I bother
When you overwhelm me with you confidence

And I open my mouth
And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out
And I open my mouth
And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out

I’ve every right to shout
A lot to shout about
But nothing ever comes out

With a deft line in humour
Laugh I couldn’t start
You try my patience
You try a lot

I won’t submit to anger
Must maintain calm precision
With your charm and expensive accent
I’m spiked on the end of your derision
And you can’t even make the simplest of decisions


But they open their mouths
And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out
And they open their mouths
And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out
They have every right
Every right to let it all out


We will make our noise
Stand our ground
Disassociate with any cause
Exclude all random elements
Be safe in our sterile void

But I don’t care
I don’t care
Run my fingers through my hair
Look at my watch, play with my pen
And when I’m finished
I’ll do it all again


But they open their mouths
And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out
And they open their mouths
And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out
They have every right
Every right to shout it about (and they like to shout)

Must keep away
Must not be dragged in
Hold onto my own personality
And keep my thoughts within

They think they can justify
Every word,
Every thought,
Every lie.

Imagine their surprise
When they discover
That so can I

And I open my mouth
And all these words come tumbling out
And I open my mouth
And the words come tumbling out

Just look at my mouth
And the words come out
Oh watch them come out
