lyrics

i lost my brother / the veins quit his neck
i lost my sister / suburban shipwreck
i lost my mother and my father as i split on the fly
where was i where was i where was i where was i?
i lost the feeling / in both of my hands
i hit the ceiling / and they cheered in the stands
and as i waved like a pennant saying good-bye
where was i where was i where was i where was i?

drop-kicked / flea-flicked
spellbound / pin-pricked
land-locked / seasick

well i heard somebody knockin so i took myself a chance and let em in

i started dreaming / but i got woke up
i got to screaming / but i got choked up
and as the team that i formed snuck away on the sly
where was i where was i where was i where was i?
i scraped my tongue / with my upper teeth
tasted the terminals / and the spark underneath
the circuit was completed with a tear from my eye
where was i where was i where was i where was i?

well i heard somebody knockin so i took myself a chance and let em in

i was a believer / and i fought through the pains
played wide-receiver / for the hometown hurricanes
and as the hail mary went up like a prayer in the sky
where was i where was i where was i where was i?

tongue- tied/ eloquent
hard-pressed / soft-bent
time-out / misspent
