Minutemen – What Is It? lyrics

In your eyes I've seen it
In my silence it's heard
In a dream it lingers

In solitude it's known
In honesty I scream it
In panic I forget it

In desperation I need it
In time I lose it
In my mind I save it

    It is a thought.
    If you look into someone's eyes, sometimes you can tell what they're thinking. You can hear yourself think when there is silence, and whatever we think about during the day shows up in our dreams.
    In solitude we know what our thoughts are, because we can distinguish our own thoughts from the ideas of others. In moments of rash honesty, we sometimes reveal our thoughts, and we forget what we were thinking when we panic.
    I need a thought when I am desperate, all thoughts fade in time, and all thoughts are kept/saved/stored up in the mind.
