nothing to say lyrics – jethro tull

everyday there’s someone asking
“what is there to do?”
should i love or should i fight
is it all the same to you?

“no”, i say, “i have the answer
proven to be true
but if i were to share it with you
you would stand to gain and i to lose”

oh, i couldn’t bear it
so i’ve got nothing to say
nothing to say, nothing to say

every morning pressure forming
all around my eyes
ceilings crash, the walls collapse
broken by the lies

that your misfortune brought upon us
and i wont disguise them
so don’t ask me will i explain
i wont even begin to tell you why

no, just because i have a name
well, i’ve got nothing to say
nothing to say, nothing to say

climb a tower of freedom
paint your own deceiving sign
it’s not my power to criticize
or to ask you to be blind

to your own pressing problem
and the hate you must unwind
and ask of me no answer
there is none that i could give, you wouldn’t find

i went your way ten years ago
and i’ve got nothing to say
nothing to say, nothing to say

nothing, nothing to say, nothing
nothing to say, nothing, nothing to say
nothing to say, nothing, nothing to say
nothing to say, nothing, nothing to say
