about

Signs in the New York Subway say "If You See Something, Say Something." I take them as an invitation to introspection. They are asking you "what DO I see, and what do I have to say about it?"

lyrics

If you see something, say something (x3)
I see a bird
I see a little white bird
You didn't know. You haven't heard - did nobody call?
I see a girl
I see a beautiful girl
Out on her own
Out in the world, with no one at all
And when I look around I see that everything's strange
We're all a little deranged

And everybody's just people
We've got to solve the problem
No other way to rock that, got to face our fears
And everybody sees danger, but we can't hide in closets
We've got to be the grownups, no more wasted tears
It's been too many years

If you see something, say something (x3)
I see a wall
I see a twenty-foot wall
You couldn't see the view at all
I see a sign
I see a prominent sign
A sign of fear
But not of mine, it's no fear of mine
And when I look around I see the world hasn't changed
We've got to cope with the strange

And everybody's just people
We've got to solve the problem
No other way to rock that, got to face our fears
And everybody sees danger, but we can't hide in closets
We've got to be the grownups, no more wasted tears
It's been too many years
Too many years

If you see something say something - or don't!
