The Answer by Joe Iconis sung by Jason Hite

When a fire starts in the hall, how much time do you have ‘til it spreads to the deck?
When a fire starts in the hall, how much time do you have ‘til it spreads to the deck?
Minutes?
Hours?
What time is it anyway?
How do you tell your uncle that you wanna quit school and just play with your band?
When a fire starts burning, how much time do you have ‘til it puts itself out?
And why do I feel like I’m choking lately, what am I doing here?
And why do I feel like I’m choking lately, what am I looking for?

Maybe school or maybe love
Or maybe none of the above is the answer.
Maybe for once I’ll really try
Or fuck it all and just get high, ‘cause that’s an answer. Feels like an answer.
And who do I wanna be?
Question 23.

What’s the furthest distance a ship can be from shore before it loses its signal?

And why do I feel like I’m choking lately, what am I doing here?
And why do I feel like I’m choking lately, what am I looking for?
Maybe living for the day or just pretending I’m okay is the answer.
Maybe for once I’ll really try or fuck it all and just get high, ‘cause that’s an answer. 

Maybe I’ll practice my guitar or read a book or steal a car, and steal the answer.
I’ll get a job and I’ll get paid, or get a girlfriend and get laid, and get the answer
I’ll join the army, go to war,
Give up my smokes or smoke some more.
I need an answer.
I’ll move to the village, shave my head,
Wind up happy, wind up dead,
Wind up in debt, wind up in love, or maybe none of the above is the answer.

Maybe it’s okay that I don’t have a plan and I don’t have a clue.
I’m 19 and that doesn’t mean that I should know exactly what I wanna do.
Right? I’m 19, that doesn’t mean that I should know what I wanna do.
I’m got time to make mistakes, make up my mind,
I’ve got time enough to find out all the answers,
but I’m scared and I’m afraid that a decision won’t get made and I’ll be like this forever,
I need help, need extra help to find the answer,
What’s the answer? I don’t know.
I don’t know.
I don’t know.
I don’t know.
I don’t know.
I don’t know.
I don’t know.
I don’t know.
I don’t, I don’t know.

When a fire starts in the hole, how much time do you have ‘til it spreads to the deck?
Pencils down, papers turned over,
Time’s up.
