They are sensory organs, although the exact nature of what they sense and how they sense it is not the same in all groups, nor always clear.

The world is turnin', I hope it don't turn away,
All my pictures are fallin' from the wall where I placed them yesterday.
The world is turnin',I hope it don't turn away.

I need a crowd of people, but I can't face them day to day,
Though my problems are meaningless, that don't make them go away.
I need a crowd of people, but I can't face them day to day.

I went to the radio interview, but I ended up alone at the microphone,
Now I'm livin' out here on the beach, but those seagulls are still out of reach.
I went to the radio interview, but I ended up alone at the microphone.

Get out of town, think I'll get out of town,
I head for the sticks with my bus and friends,
I follow the road, though I don't know where it ends.
Get out of town, get out of town, think I'll get out of town.

'Cause the world is turnin', I don't want to see it turn away.

stealth blood suckers
they attack with utmost care
in worst case scenarios
they carry dreaded diseases
can't help but wonder what good they bring
or they just help balance the yang and ying?

Something truly real, that you never found again
