Lyrics

That is the Point

Written By: Mike Painter

I see the trouble churning, just out of eye shot.
I only guess that it would end.
Like a whirlpool spinnin
round and round me now
Tryin it's hardest to pull me in.

(chorus)
Thats the kind of thing that makes you crazy but that's the point, just to keep you off your guard.
You're in an atmosphere that's just too hazy to see yourself for who you are, for who you are.
That is the point.

Relationships are like the whirlpool, unpredictable at best. It's not a game cause there's no rules.
You throw your hat into that ring, cause that's what everyone expects. You come a king, you leave a fool.

chorus)
Thats the kind of thing that makes you crazy but that's the point, just to keep you off your guard.
You're in an atmosphere that's just too hazy to see yourself for who you are, for who you are.
That is the point.

Then you meet that certain someone, with all the attributes you like. the mystery has just begun.
And courtship follows along it's normal course now.
You smile, you kiss, you screw, you run.

chorus)
Thats the kind of thing that makes you crazy but that's the point, just to keep you off your guard.
You're in an atmosphere that's just too hazy to see yourself for who you are, for who you are.
That is the point.

FIN.
