Name of Song: That feeling of nothing makes us frantically dream

We’d rather have something
than nothing it seems,
That feeling of nothing
makes us frantically dream.

We must have the feeling
of something in hand,
It’s just what we’re used to,
Like a drink while we stand.

You know what I mean,
You are what you own,
So talking about spirits
You might as well go on home.

Chorus
Got so used to something,
Like our body or a bed,
Even feelings of silence
start a trigger of dread.
Got so used to something,
Like our body or a bed,
Even feelings of silence
start a trigger of dread.

Bridge
The fact you’re a spirit
doesn’t mean very much,
When a person needs solid
and lives life as such.
A spirit is invisible
so you’re easily explained,
They only see a body
so why be ashamed.
