Do You Know What I'm Seeing?

Album: Pretty. Odd (2008)
  • Clouds are marching along,
    Singing a song, just like they do.
    If the clouds were singing a song,
    I'd sing along, wouldn't you too?

    If you just knew, what they could do.
    If you just knew, what they would do?
    And if the birds are just hollow words,
    Flying along, singing a song.
    What would they do, if they knew,
    What they could do.
    If they just knew.

    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    No, it never gave a damn about me.

    I know it's mad, but if go to hell,
    Will you come with me, or just leave?
    I know it's mad, but the world were ending,
    Would you kiss me, or just leave me?
    Just leave me.

    Clouds are singing a song, marching along
    Just like they do.
    If the clouds were playing a song,
    I'd play along, wouldn't you too?

    If you just knew what they could do.
    If you just knew, what would they do?

    And if words are just hollow birds,
    Flying along, singing a song.
    What would they do, if they just knew,
    What we could do, oh, if they just knew.

    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    No, it never gave a damn about me.

    I know it's mad, but I go to hell,
    Will you come with me, or just leave?
    I know it's mad, but the world were ending,
    Would you kiss me, or just leave me?
    Just leave me.

    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    No, it never gave a damn about me.

    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    I know it's sad that I never gave a damn about the weather,
    And it never gave a damn about me.
    No, it never gave a damn about me.

    No, it never gave a damn about me. Writer/s: BRENDON URIE, GEORGE ROSS, JONATHAN WALKER, SPENCER SMITH

  • Candace from Los AngelesSkyler it makes reference to Alice in Wonderland. The whole album does. He didn't make it up to whine about the weather he used that lyric as a jumping off point for the whole song. Not to say it's the best piece of art ever but it has more meaning than just complaining about the weather.
  • Skyler from Saskatchewan, CanadaI was expecting the song's meaning to be about something deep and philosophical, I was wrong and I'm not on the brink of crying because it's about the weather X'D
  • Michael from Tucson, AzThis song is horrible. The lyrics are completely overused everyday by secondhand artists. "just like they do" is a filling lyric. Rhyming simply because you can is unacceptable, as well. The lyrics in this entire album are second rate. I'm completely disappointed by P!ATD.
  • Paige from West Lafayette, Ini love this song:
    i kno its mad but if i go to hell,
    would go go too or just leave

    i love PATD's lyrics!!!! they are so deep!
    :D
