Case in Point Lyrics

Case In Point - Andrew Bird

I'm a breather mail receiver

 

And I don't know where I stand

 

Not since someone informed me

 

That my house was built on sand

 

And it's not the earth beneath me

It's just the concept of the land

And I'm standing on the corner

 

When the buildings they all fell

 

If you blink once you're a goner

 

Everything just goes pell-mell

 

It's a real hard sell

 

My conceptual hell

 

Not even good for kindling

When the buildings they all fell

 

I'm a breather mail receiver

 

Bottom feader just getting by

 

And you know it's all just par for the course

 

But you blame it on some non-existent force

 

Oh yeah of course

 

You know you can't ride the concept of the horse

But still I try

 

In a cartoon desert landscape

With a pair of ACME jetskates

Focused on my destination

I seem to have forgot my station

Now it's time to face the nation

 

And I'm riding to meet you

 

On a brown gray speckled mare

 

But there's something that unnerves me

 

Like I'm riding on thin air

 

These few doubts disserve me

Thinking no one really cares

And I'm jumping over fences

 

On this obstacle course

 

But it seems I'm getting nowhere

On the concept of the horse

It's a real hard sell

 

My conceptual hell

 

Not even good for kindling know

When the buildings they all fell

 

I'm a breather

Bottom feader

How many liters

 

Must I imbibe

And you know it's all just par for the course

 

But you blame it on some non-existent force

 

Oh yeah of course

 

You know you can't ride the concept of the horse

 

But still I try
