They Might Be Giants – I’ve Been Seeing Things Lyrics

I’ve been seeing things, I’ve been seeing things
I’ve been seeing things, I’ve been seeing things Trail went cold by the airport road
Watching them stack containers in rows
Seagulls, helicopter, wind blown trash
Something doesn’t add up
I’ve been seeing things, I’ve been seeing things
No one asked but I’m paying all kinds of attention
Later I’m watching the news report
Camera pans across a crime scene
Unremarked upon detail: empty violin case
Okay maybe not the same case different material different color
Still you have to wonder am I the only one who knows? I’ve been seeing things, I’ve been seeing things
Don’t have answers but I’ve got lots of questions
Car pulls up, someone gets out
Hands someone else a violin case
I’m trying not to let them see me looking at them
But I’m pretty sure there was a doll inside
Keep your eyes peeled and you’ll see stuff
Which at first seems like unimportant irrelevant things
Can’t just ask some perfect stranger
What are you hiding in your violin case
Shadow them at a distance instead
Try to get inside their head
Where’d they go now I got distracted
They gave me the slip, wearing a disguise
That lady, must have ditched the case
Hid the doll, what’s she up to now?
