Talked With Our Hands

TTTO “Spoke With Our Hands”, Echo’s Children

When I was a youngster, our school tried to teach
That moving your hand’s not required for speech
But from all I could see, it’s the way it’s done here
You can see someone’s talking without your ears

[Chorus]
We talk with our hands, can not do otherwise
We are rough and direct, we’re just plain simple guys
Don’t gesture’s a thing that no one understands
In a country where everyone talks with their hands

But as much as I did it, I still had my fears
That doing it this way would end all in tears
And I couldn’t explain, and nobody would care
Why our gesturing isn’t a good thing to share

[Chorus]


Keep your hand on the wheel, here, no one understands
In a country where everyone talks with their hands

I can try to conceal it but still I am caught
For my gesturing hands I can’t stop ’till I rot
And I hoped it would stop with the wisdom of age
That I gesture in happiness, sadness or rage

[Chorus]


Talking and Wii-ing, no one understands
In a country where everyone talks with their hands

I talk with my hands, as I did so before
To gesture when talking is deep in my core
Though I’m far from my country, I’m doing it still
Earth be my witness — I meant you no ill

[Chorus]


In hand-cuffs, and speaking? No one understands
In a country where everyone talks with their hands
