The Impression I Get: Mighty Mighty Bosstones

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…
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 felt the odds stacked up so high,
you need a strength most don't possess?
Or has it 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…
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.

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…
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… 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…
Never had… 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.
