Umphrey's McGee > Songs > Educated Guess > Lyrics

    Lift me up, sit me up, or I won't make it
    I set it down, I saw you turned around
    I can't explain, Can you explain the rest?
    I filled to top, at least I thought
    But now these pieces won't connect

    He didn't know he was the victim of a crime
    Or even notice that particular time
    Tried to explain it but it didn't quite line up

    I really doubt he even made a connection
    He missed his sister when he saw a reflection
    Got turned around and went the wrong direction

    He's barely there by now but manages to talk somehow
    As every word is slowing down

    Come up for air only to breathe more pollution
    You didn't factor in your own contributions
    Twist it around until you find a solution

    Overreacted when they gave you what was less than
    What you expected though an educated guess then
    Tried to retracted when you stated your confession

    He's fading faster now so asking him the question how
    As all he knows is upside down

    There's no need to overthink this through
    I feel fine
    Let me lie right here

    From the beginning it was all too revealing
    Back in the middle did you know what you were stealing
    And in the end you're only running from the feeling

    You run in place to make your own translation
    Bury your face into your own imagination
    And start to worry ‘bout the wrong calculations

    He's barely hanging on with no idea that something's wrong
    As every word just waits too long

    I'll concede to what I need from you
    I feel fine
    Let me lie down here

    One last promise before I fall
    I might say things I don't recall, you can forget ‘em all
