                           Would You (Julian Lennon)

WOULD YOU RATHER THE FEELING

OF NO FEELING AT ALL

A SOUNDLESS SEA THAT SLIPS TOWARD

THE MORNING SHORE, WHERE YOU STAND TRANSFIXED

VOID OF EMOTION, NO CLUE OF A NOTION

TRANSFIXED LIKE A STONE

ENTHRALLED BY THE FEELING OF NO FEELING AT ALL

PUSHED BY MY SAIL

I AM MOVED BY THE WHALE

AS HE FLOATS THROUGH LIFE'S SEAS

HE SEEMS ALWAYS AT EASE

SHOW ME HOW

CENTURIONS GUARD THE FINELY-TUNED SENSORS

THAT TREMBLE AT THE SLIGHTEST ONSET OF STIRRINGS

WHICH SWITCH THE DAMPERS TO ABSORB THE EMOTION

AND TRIGGER THE FILTER THAT SCREENS OUT

TIME AND PASSING

TRANSFIXED LIKE A STONE

ENTHRALLED BY THE FEELING OF NO FEELING AT ALL

PUSHED BY MY SAIL

I AM MOVED BY THE WHALE

AS HE FLOATS THROUGH LIFE'S SEAS

HE SEEMS ALWAYS AT EASE

SHOW ME HOW

WHAT YA GONNA DO WHEN IT HITS THE FAN

OPEN YOUR MIND, MAKE A BRAND NEW PLAN

DO YOU REALIZE IT'S IN YOUR HEAD

WANNA UNDERSTAND BUT REFUSE INSTEAD

IF YOU TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND INHALE

MAYBE YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THE WHALE

WE EITHER COMPREHEND OR WE SEEM TO FAIL

PUSHED BY MY SAIL

I AM MOVED BY THE WHALE

AS HE FLOATS THROUGH LIFE'S SEA

HE SEEMS ALWAYS AT EASE

SHOW ME HOW
