What For Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Today, I won`t think of any sad things
Will not think of torture, or the rape of nature
Just today, I won`t touch those sickening papers
Will just let myself get swept away by this beautiful day
Verse 2
What for, tell oh me, tell oh me, what for
What for, tell oh me, tell oh me, what for
Verse 3
The sunset tonight is beyond all words, in the sky above the square
The starling spiral dancing on air.
Verse 4
What for, tell oh me, tell oh me, what for
What for, tell oh me, tell oh me, what for
Verse 5
I will pass through the glass into air past those birds
In the square, I am sun, I am sky in my mind`s eye
Verse 6
Today, I will dive into foaming seas
Sick fish, myself, and some strange debris.
I would prefer to be anywhere away from here
Oh I would prefer to be anywhere away from here
I would prefer to be anywhere away from here
I would prefer to be anywhere away from here
Verse 7
What for, tell oh me tell oh me, what for
What for, tell oh me, tell oh me, what for
Verse 8
I will pass through the glass into air past those birds
In the square I am sun I am sky
Verse 9
What for, tell oh me tell oh me, what for
What for, tell oh me, tell oh me, what for
