The Impression That I Get
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones Lyrics


Have you ever been close to tragedy
Or been close to folks who have?
Have you ever felt the pain so powerful
So heavy, you collapse?
No? Well

I've never had to knock on wood
But I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if

I've never had to knock on wood
And I'm glad I haven't yet
Because I'm sure it isn't good
That's the impression that I get

Have you ever had the odds stacked up so high
You need a strength most don't possess?
Or has it ever come down to do or die?
You've got to rise above the rest
No? Well

I've never had to knock on wood
But I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if
I've never had to knock on wood
And I'm glad I haven't yet
Because I'm sure it isn't good
That's the impression that I get

I'm not a coward I've just never been tested
I'd like to think that if I was I would pass
Look at the tested and think there but for the grace go I
Might be a coward
I'm afraid of what I might find out

Never had to knock on wood
But I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if

I've never had to knock on wood
And I'm glad I haven't yet
Because I'm sure it isn't good
That's the impression that I get

Never had to but I'd better knock on wood
'Cause I know someone who has
Which makes me wonder if I could
It makes me wonder if

I've never had to but I'd better knock on wood
'Cause I'm sure it isn't good
And I'm glad I haven't yet
That's the impression that I get

This song goes to my buddy, my brother, Craig Jacobs who I lost this past Tuesday at the age of 36. I remember jamming out to this song numerous times. Rest easy Craig. Love ya buddy.

May he rest in peace. Sorry for your loss. Praying for you.

It's August of 1998, your three friends from middle-school spent the afternoon playing Goldeneye on the N64, with ALL rumble packs. So your mom invited them over to sleepover and even ordered stuffed crust pizza with wings, causing you and Jerry to leap up on the couch and dropkick each other in celebration. Meanwhile, Ian has been bragging all afternoon on how to get free music off your internet connection, and FINALLY downloaded this song off the living room computer. And although you don't realize it at the time, this is about as good as life is going to get.

Sadly I was born in 98 so I didn't get to REALLY experience the 90's. Sounds like a fun time though.
