Would You Be Impressed?
Toh Kay Lyrics

Would you be upset if I told you we were dying?
And every cure they gave us was a lie?
Oh! They mean it when they say we're dead and doomed
And every single symptom brings us closer to the tomb
And who will take the credit for our swift impending fall
Because it's not my fault

Would you be impressed if I said that the dead would help us counting
Every single moment that we waste our time?
All the time we're spending vaccinating this disease
I just get dizzy when I think of all the ways we try to hide our maladies
We wine (we wine), we dine (we dine), and everything is fine
Because it's not my fault

Now you're upset because you finally got the notion
That everything you had is spinning down the drain
Oh! Do you mean it when you beg and pray and plead?
Your "Giveittomegiveittomegiveittomegiveittome all those things we need"
And what, pray tell, will you whimper when your number will be called
You'll say "It's not my fault"

Go! Now! The others they'll await you
And every single one among the lot of you will have your turn
Ai Ai Ai Oh Oh OH
Like moths that fly into the flame it always ends up so
You scream: "Not me! Take anybody else!
Because it's not my fault!"

I had a dream last night where everyone was trying
Subconsciously I knew it was a lie
And when I woke I knew it was time to pray
To make amends before the end, before my judgment day
I looked around, I stood alone, I knew what I had to say
I said "It's all my fault"

yes, and hearing the lyrics in the toh kay versions, then hearing the streetlight version adds incredible depth to both versions when you listen to them again.

Especially with the slight changes or additional lyrics. You get to see a whole other side to the songs.




Kalnoky's proficiency on the guitar absolutely blew me away when I first heard this album. It's mind-blowing...

I know I'm late, but right?! You can't always tell how talented of a guitar player he is through the "thrashiness" of SManifesto, it shines through here with perfect clarity. Amazing.


I'll be honest. It's not my type of music, but the artist is very talented.

without the happy wind instruments, the lyrics really make you take a hard look at yourself

streetlight manifesto wrote it, toh kay IS tomas kalnoky, or the guitarist/lead singer of streetlight manifesto, he's in both, toh kay is just his solo acoustic guitar thing that he does on his own aside from streetlight manifesto
