Umphrey’s McGee Educated Guess Lyrics

sponsored links

[Verse 1]
Lift me up, sit me up
Or I won't make it, I set it down
(I saw you)
Turn around, I can't explain the rest
I filled the top, at least I thought
But now these pieces won't connect

[Verse 2]
He didn't know he was the victim of a crime
Or even noticed the particular time
Try to explain but it didn't quite line up
I really doubt he even made a connection
He missed his sister when he saw her reflection
Got turned around and went the wrong direction
He's barely here right now
But manages to talk somehow
His every word is slowing down

[Verse 3]
Come up for air I need to breathe more pollution
You didn't factor in your own contribution
Twist it around until you find a solution
Overreacted when they gave you what was less than
What you expected you're an educated guess then
Tried to retract it when you stated your confession
He's feeling faster now
So asking him the question how
Is all he knows is upside down

[Bridge]
There's no need to
Over think this through
I feel fine
Let me lie right here

[Verse 4]
From the beginning it was all too revealing
Back in the middle did you know what you were stealing
And in a minute you're only running from the feeling
You're running places make your own translations
Bury your face into your own imagination
And start to worry about the wrong calculation
He's barely hanging on
With no idea that something's wrong
His every word just waits too long

[Bridge]
I'll concede to
What I need from you
I feel fine
Let me lie down here

[Outro]
One last promise
Before I'll fall
I might say things I don't recall
You can't forget 'em all

[Instrumental]
