Dar WilliamsAre You Out There

Words and music by dar williams Perhaps I am a miscreation No one knows the truth there is no future here And you're the dj speaks to my insomnia And laughs at all I have to fear Laughs at all I have to fear You always play the madmen poets Vinyl vision grungy bands You never know who's still awake You never know who understands and Are you out there, can you hear this? Jimmy olson, johnny memphis, I was out here listening all the time And though the static walls surround me You were out there and you found me I was out here listening all the time Last night we drank in parking lots And why do we drink? I guess we do it cause And when I turned your station on You sounded more familiar than that party was You more familiar than that party It's the first time I stayed up all night It's getting light I hear the birds I'm driving home on empty streets I think I put my shirt on backwards Are you out there, can you hear this Jimmy olson , johnny memphis I was out here listening all the time And though the static walls surround me You were out there and you found me I was out here listening all the time And what's the future, who will choose it? Politics of love and music Underdogs who turn the tables Indie versus major labels There's so much to see through Like our parents do more drugs than we do Oh.... Corporate parents, corporate towns I know every tv set that has them lit They preach that I should save the world They pray that I won't do a better job of it Pray that I won't do a better job So tonight I turned your station on just so I'd be understood Instead another voice said I was just too late And just no good.... Calling olson, calling memphis I am calling, can you hear this? I was out here listening all the time And I will write this down And then I will not be alone again yeah I was out here listening Oh yeah I was out here listening Oh yeah I am out here listening all the time
