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 that 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 seas
He seems always at ease
Show me how
