​Jimmy, He Whispers

This song is by Manchester Orchestra and appears on the album Mean Everything to Nothing (2009).

Original video
God knows you're on my mind
I can't try to tell him otherwise
God knows it's only time
Before I break the chain in my eyes

Fear keeps you hiding at night
And the creatures play ball outside
Chances are slim we are right
But I'd never think it any otherwise

So we'll find the answers in time
And the bodies pile up sky high
And I'll sail the ship towards the sky
But I'll end all alone on the other side

And if you could pull that rope just a little higher
We would dangle alone like a firefly

So Jimmy, I've heard the voice of God
And he whispered, "Fear is logical."
And he said it's magic, wonderful
And he swears to him it's wonderful
And the lake you speak of, magical
So I skip stones on it, practical
And I make sure we're both wonderful

You're a brother and that's alright
You're a brother and that's alright
You're a brother and that's alright
We're brothers, it makes it right

'Cause his blood is so red in spite
Of the way that our sharp teeth bite
Oh the way that our sharp teeth bite
In each other, during the night
With the creatures that play outside
We're the creatures that play outside

'Cause Jimmy, I've heard the voice of God
And he whispered, "Fear is logical."
And the words that we heard aren't repeatable
And the thought that could kill comprehendable

And we're brothers and that's alright
Yeah, we're brothers and that's alright
Yeah, we're brothers and that's alright
Yeah, we're brothers until we die
