Song Lyrics #18 - Words

by - September 29, 2019

 

This week I'm looking at Words by Missing Persons. This is one of my favorite bands from the 80's and as many have said Dale Bozzio was Gaga before there was a Gaga. :) This may be my favorite of theirs though, and I love the lyrics. Alienation- this could be a teen talking- or just a lament that everyone is self absorbed and not paying attention? There were no cell phones then but imagine these lyrics now

Oh, and there's a reading reference, so apropos right? Anyway, enjoy.         

So what do you think?   


Lyrics

Do you hear me
Do you care 
Do you hear me 
Do you care 

My lips are moving and the sound's coming out 
The words are audible but I have my doubts
That you realize what has been said 
You look at me as if you're in a daze
It's like the feeling at the end of the page
When you realize you don't know what you just read 

What are words for when no one listens anymore 
What are words for when no one listens 
What are words for when no one listens it's no use talkin at all

I might as well go up and talk to a wall 
cause all the words are having no effect at all
It's a funny thing am I all alone 

Something has to happen to change the direction 
What little filters through is giving you the wrong impression 
It's a sorry state I say to myself 

What are words for when no one listens anymore
What are words for when no one listens 
What are words for when no one listens it's no use talkin at all

Do you hear me 
Do you care
Do you hear me 
Do you care 

Let me get by 
Over your dead body
Hope to see you soon
When will I know 
Doors three feet wide with no locks open 
Walking always backwards in the faces of strangers
Time could be my friend 
But it's less than nowhere now
Less than nowhere now
Less than nowhere now 
Now ow ow ow 

Pursue it further and another thing you'll find 
Not only are they deaf and dumb they could be going blind and no one notices 
I think I'll dye my hair blue

Media overload bombarding you with action 
It's getting near impossible to cause distraction 
Someone answer me before I pull out the plug

What are words for when no one listens anymore
What are words for when no one listens
What are words for when no one listens it's no use talkin at all 

What are words for when no one listens anymore
 What are words for when  no one listens 
What are words for when  no one listens it's no use talkin at all

Do you hear me 
Do you care 
Do you hear me 
Do you care
Tell me what are words for 
Do you hear me 
Tell me what are words for 
Do you care 
Tell me what are words for 
Do you hear me 
So tell me what are words for 
Do you care 
So tell me what are words for 
Do you hear me 
Tell me what are words for 
Do you care
