King Biscuit Time - I Walk The Earth lyrics

Lyrics to "I Walk The Earth" by King Biscuit Time from their second EP, No Style. I couldn't find the lyrics for this awesome tune online so here they are! Not in any way cheesy music, just quality indie.

King Biscuit Time is the solo project of Steve Mason who was lead singer of The Beta Band - As John Cusack's character in the High Fidelity film will tell you, check out the Beta Band compilation, The Three EPs if you've never heard their music before.

The basic drums, repetitive bass line and vocals make this an awesome song. Really uplifting too.

I'm not definite on two lyrics, comment if you think they're wrong. First one is "Take me a day", could it be "take me all day"? Second one is "Hey, knock me," which i first thought was "Hey, not me" but changed to "knock" after reading a comment by ironman9 on the YouTube music video.

I Walk The Earth lyrics
Artist: King Biscuit Time

When I walk through the earth,
I get stuck in the middle,
I can't see your love,
I don't know your love.

When I walk through the earth,
I get stuck in the middle,
I can't see your love,
I don't know your love.

Why won't you take me away?
Take me a day,
Keep on rising higher.

Why won't you take me away?
Take me a day,
Keep on rising higher.

Chorus x 8
Hey, knock me,
Picking on your own reality.

When I walk through the earth,
I get stuck in the middle,
I can't see your love,
I don't know your love.

When I walk through the earth,
I get stuck in the middle,
I can't see your love,
I don't know your love.

Why won't you take me away?
Take me a day,
Keep on rising higher.

Why won't you take me away?
Take me a day,
Keep on rising higher.

Chorus x 8
Hey, knock me,
Picking on your own reality.

Instrumental break

Chorus to fade
Hey, knock me,
Picking on your own reality.

Hey good job on compiling the lyrics... Remember looking for them a long time ago and being disappointed at not finding them.
One question... any idea of the virtually indecipherable lyrics underlaid behind the chorus (Hey, knock me, etc)? Think it finishes with something that sounds like "...my love", but not sure. Not holding out much hope, as it's really hard to hear, but figured I'd see if you were any help curing my curiousity...

Oh yeah! I forgot about that bit under the chorus. Just had a listen, something like "why won't we say...." and then it goes completely unintelligible. So, no, sorry. If i ever bump into the guys from King Biscuit Time i will be sure to ask (not that i ever will and if i did not that i'd even recognize them!). Let me know if you figure it out...

Have listened to it a few times the past few days and I reckon it might be: "why must we stay over and above, my love"... Vaguely fits with the lyrics in the rest of the song, perhaps... Not 100% but I can't listen to it now without hearing that.

Sounds like
"Why must we stay all alone apart, my love" to me. The world may never know for sure.

I think you'll want to place a facebook button to your blog. I just marked down the article, however I had to do it by hand. Simply my suggestion.

Facebook button - yep good reminder. Been meaning to update the blogger template on this for a year or so but haven't got round to it. Will get off my ass and sort it soon!!! Cheers, Ed

I've been trying to figure out the chorus for years! I always thought he said "Hey, not me, make an unknown reality," but I told my GF to listen, and she thought "making my own way outta here." And you say something else. I guess it's open to the listener!
