What to Say. Born Ruffians. Produced by Rusty Santos. Album Say It. What to Say Lyrics. When I wake up I'm speaking slow When I get drunk I'm speaking more Get too drunk and I don't speak at all Get too close to you and I don't know what to say. The only time I make sense is when I'm talking in my sleep But there's nobody around to write it down So it gets lost on my books and pillows. What to say When I'm talking to you What to say When I'm standing there talking to you. Words that don't relate to one another flowing off our tongues Fragments, fleeting thoughts get strung together one by one by one Things we can't relay to one another smoke goes in my lungs I get more from a look than from people when they've spoke or yelled or sung. People talk People talk People talk But they don't know what to say. What do you say?. When it comes to you, you look good in your sleep (What do you say?)

Contrary to initial predictions Sole Brother will not be the first single from Born Ruffians’ forthcoming second album Say It. Instead, the indie rock trio from Toronto chose What To Say to lead the hype surround their upcoming opus. The song does not bear any experiments from the band as it offers their signature style of accoustic instrumentals and sharp lyrics.
Hummingbird’ by Born Ruffians was one of my favourite indie rock songs. It sounded like Joan of Arc gone crazy. What I liked about it was that ecstatic, wincing-with-glee voice. So – a new Born Ruffians single, hooray, sounds great, let’s go have fun! Oh. I see. Turns out he’s now miserable and shy. Who knew guys who describe girls as hummingbirds actually have a sensitive side? ‘What to Say’ is all about hesitation. How do you talk to someone who you love so much it terrifies you? How do I let her know she loves me? I dunno, is the answer, so I’ll go write about it.
On Born Ruffians' full-length debut, 2008's Red Yellow & Blue, his voice was a tightly coiled spring that popped off in all the right places, hugging the record's herky-jerky rhythms close and often acting as a primer for the splashes of colorful guitar riffs that ran throughout the record. Even more impressive was his memorable turn on "Jamelia", from Caribou's latest, Swim. Lalonde softly vibed over the track's muted tones and shuffling beat before exploding during its fireworks finale . Both lazy and painfully forced, Say It is a paradoxically bad album- fitting, then, that the album's most melodically inoffensive cut, "Sole Brother", is the biggest lyrical stinker. Sole Brother" slowly concerns into what might be the most inane First World Problem expressed in musical form so far this year: doing your chores.
