Ben Folds Five - The Sound of the Life of the Mind

Damn

I ordered something

it took a while

This morning something

was on my doorstep

What's this I'm holding?

Time capsule order

cause I'm a brand new man

And I don't think I want it, I don't think I want it

A row of flags Hanging behind me

A garden of mics and questions

And photo flashes blind me

And I'm so high I can't recall my statements

I only know I made 'em

Because my face vibrated

Is it all in my mind?

I could have sworn I saw it

I thought I was fine

So fine is what I called it

Oh-oh if you're feeling small, and you can't draw a crowd

Draw dicks on a wall

Oh-oh if you're feeling small, and you can't draw a crowd

Draw dicks on a wall

I was gruntled when It was just feet on gravel

To have come apart

I must have once been raveled

Now when pretty phrases

Don't mean nothin

And I want to sell em

I sing the line again

So smooth you can hear the beard

So smooth you can hear the beard

(hear the beard)

Three times it's poetry

So smooth you can hear the beard

Oh-oh if you're feeling small, and you can't draw a crowd

Draw dicks on a wall

Oh-oh if you're feeling small, and you can't draw a crowd

Draw dicks on a wall

If you can't draw a crowd

Draw dicks on a wall

And if you can't draw a crowd, settle for what you can draw

I'm just saying

I-I-I-I'm just saying

What a saying: that I'm just saying

But many wait, to what I'm saying

Always come back again, I can't ignore it

I'm a brand new man, but I'm still ṗayin' for it

Oh-oh if you're feeling small, and you can't draw a crowd

Draw dicks on a wall

Oh-oh if you're feeling small, and you can't draw a crowd

Draw dicks on a wall

If you can't draw a crowd, draw dicks on a wall

If you can't draw a crowd, draw dicks on a wall

And if you can't draw a crowd, settle for what you can draw

I only wanted to be Stevie Wonder

But I got to settle for this vanilla thunder

(If you can't draw a crowd)

Oh-this vanilla thunder

(If you can't draw a crowd)

Oh-this vanilla thunder

(If you can't draw a crowd)

Taste my vanilla thunder

If you feeling small

I listened to his StudioQ interview. He's right. It's actually jazz. Brilliant stuff.

I love Ben! Thanks for sharing this! I Missed their last tour around here but followed them over the years. If you like Ben Folds check out this video by my favorite Iowa, yes Iowa musician Sean Huston. he has Ben Folds like rythms but a more Rufus Wainright like voice. He is playing PINK DALMATIAN in front of some very surprised folks with Main street USA In the background. Thanks, and let me know what you think!

Scratch that last comment. I'm 99% sure it's actually "Why does saying that 'I'm just sayin' lend any weight to what I'm saying?" Sorrry about that. Cheers!

Actually I just put better headphones on, I think you're right, it is "What a saying: that I'm just saying" I'm going to bed now.

Thanks for posting this! Really dig the new album. Correct lyrics aren't up online yet. :-( Pretty sure the above lyrics are a bit closer. Peace!
