They Might Be Giants: Which Describes How You're Feeling Meaning
Which Describes How You're Feeling Lyrics
Which describes how you're feeling all the
Feeling all the time
There's this guy in the sky and he makes you want to
Want to make you sigh, like the time
When you felt like you're feeling all...

I never thought this song had any interpretation. I just thought it was supposed to be nonsense. Sometimes THEY make fun of how people talk. Like, for instance, in the song Cage and Aquarium, they say "used to be different, now you're the same" It always aggravates me when rednecks here in the upper midwest say "Yeah...he's difErNt." Anyways, THEY seem to feel that if everyone else can butcher the english language, why the hell can't THEY? When I heard the song "Finished With Lies" I thought... "maybe that's a key to the meaning of 'Which describes...'?!" In that song, they say "I'll turn everything around and confuse you, talk faster and faster til I lose you, I'll fix it so you can't remember what was true..." THEY're talking about deception and manipulation. This verse highlights the most common methods of manipulation. Maybe, I thought, Which describes... is about the same thing? The words are repeated verse by verse with different arrangements, like when he says "didn't rhyme, overseas" then later says "....with the word overseas" Also, the subject never ends up making any sense, but the listener is led on a goose chase from the beginning to the end of the song. It could be a practice in deception by way of confusion.
