lyrics

This is not a metaphor
And I am not fucking around
I am pushing wind up my neck
And out my mouth to make this sound
Designers made them simple and right
And traffic made us see what they do
I'm a line, but I'm more than a line
I've got direction and style
And I cannot tell a lie

Arrows are honest
Arrows are honest
I mean what I say
And I point where I mean
Arrows are honest
Arrows are honest
I mean what I say
And I point where I mean

This is telling, and there's no need to ask
This is knowing, this is not a surprise
Here's the thing, won't you look at the thing?
This is looking, this is open your eyes
On the plane on the safety belt sign
At the market in the checkout line
There's a service that I'm drawn to provide
And if you look at me nice I'll tell you when where and why

I mean what I say and I point where I mean
Which means I'm gonna say what I would like you to see
I mean what I say and I point where I mean
I've got something to say, and I hope that you'll agree with me

That this is not a metaphor
And I am not fucking around
I am showing at the speed of look
And I am telling at the speed of sound
And if you think that I am playing a game,
If you think that I am playing a song,
I've got a way to make it easy for you
To understand the subtle ways in which you got it all wrong
