  • Lyrics
  • I'm not aware of too many things
    I know what I know if you know what I mean
    Philosophy is a talk on cereal box religion
    Is a smile on a dog

    I'm not aware of too many things
    I know what I know if you know what I mean
    Choke me in the shallow water before I get too deep
    What I am is what I am are you what you are or what?

    I'm not aware of too many things I know what I know if you know what I mean
    Philosophy is a walk on slippery rocks religion
    Is a light in the fog
    I'm not aware of too many things I know what I know if you know what I mean

    Choke me in the shallow water before I get too deep
    What I am is what I am are you what you are or whatWriter/s: BRANDON ALY, EDIE ARLISA BRICKELL, JOHN BRADLEY HOUSER, JOHN WALTER BUSH, KENNETH NEIL WITHROW

  • Chris from Germany Wow this song is ageless. Never thought it might be from the 80s. Sounds so fresh and made the band a 2 hit wonder band in the US
  • Josh from UsaI like how the comment about Texas and killing raging unwelcome guests has to be made, I guess anywhere else you just allow the intruder to batter you, even to death? It's a shame, but... Some people have no conception of how violence, armed or unarmed, actually works. I guess that's white privilege too. lol
